Let’s Talk About The Release

Cycling can be one of the best releasers from day to day stress, but what if you need something else to act as The Release?  In this edition of Let’s Talk, I’d like your help in building the post by commenting on a couple different things.  First, tell us about the other releasers in your life other than cycling…and also let us know what it is about being on the bike that provides you with that ahhhh feeling.

In this quick video I explain how cycling here in Grenada has not really given me the release that I’m sued to getting from the bike, but I also talk about the one thing that always gives me a break from my stressors.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
