Survivors - Guatemala - collapsing from heat exhaustion and cramps

Health 24 - Diet, General

A really interesting article about Survivor Guatemala - and the effect of the heat on the contestants during their jungle trek into camp.

It is an extreme example of some of the causes of cramp - lack of preparation, lack of acclimatisation, lack of water, lack of electrolytes etc.

We work with Dr Adrian Cohen, the medical doctor for Survivor - in our Ultimate Cramp Busting Guide. In fact in this book we go into great detail on the subject of electrolytes, energy, preparation and nutrition for overall health in endurance events.
