Sweat electrolyte concentration increases proportionate to sweat rate, and the e load™ customization system is founded on this principle.
For starters, it is important that you strictly follow the e load™ mixing instructions found on the label. NEVER USE more e load™ powder AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR ZONE CAPS™ . Adding more e load™ than the instructions advise will result in a drink that is too sweet and that has too much flavoring, a sure recipe for nausea and vomiting when you are pushing yourself. Finally, don't let the small size of the ZONE CAPS™ fool you - they pack a punch from an Electrolyte and MulitCitrate™ point of view.
Customizing is an easy three - step process, summarized by the following equation:
|Temperature||+||Sweat Profile||=||Customized Formula|
|(Step 1)||(Step 2)||(Step 3)|
What is the temperature range in which you be be training / competing?
|< 60° F/16° C||Low|
|60°-75° F/16°-23° C||Medium|
|> 75° F/23° C||High|
Fahrenheit = F
Celsius = C
Using the chart below, determine which Sweat Profile, Light, Medium or Heavy, is the best reflection of you:
Once you have figured out the temperature and your sweat profile, you can mix your e load™ and customize your drink to match. It's that easy!
The following table summarizes this step:
Dear Dr. Stoddard:
As defending Rowing World Champions, my teammates and I are training hard to win again this summer in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Training more than thirty hours per week means that fluid intake and electrolyte replacement is key to maintaining our intensity on the water. E load has been a big part of our winter training, and will be a real asset when we go into the heat of the Beijing Olympics this summer.

Congratulations to the Canadian Men's 8 Rowing 2008 Olympic Gold Champions fueled by e load!
