Ep. 52: Hydration Science and Strategies with Andy Blow of Precision Fuel and Hydration


Hydration science and strategies with Andy Blow of Precision Fuel and Hydration

Welcome to Episode 52 of the Eat for Endurance Podcast! I am really excited about my guest today - sports scientist Andy Blow. In his younger days, Andy was an elite-level triathlete, finishing in the top-10 of Ironman and 70.3 races, as well as winning an Xterra World title. He also previously worked as the Team Sports Scientist for the Benetton and Renault Formula 1 teams, and remains an adviser to the Porsche Human Performance Center at Silverstone, home of the British Grand Prix.


Andy’s struggles with sports nutrition in his own race experiences ultimately led him to set up his company, Precision Fuel and Hydration, which specializes in helping athletes discover their unique hydration needs and create individualized fueling and hydration strategies for training and competitions.


I absolutely loved the discussion that we had today. It’s a long one, because I got Andy to indulge my endless curiosity about the world of Formula 1, so if you’re at all interested in that, you’re in for a treat. He also is an expert in hydration, and we spent a lot of time delving into this huge, important topic. Andy has been on many other shows going through these concepts in detail, but hydration is such a key topic that so many athletes find confusing that I thought it would be worth sharing once again on my platform as well.


In full disclosure, I received free sports nutrition samples from Andy’s team in advance of this recording, and I will be receiving a free sweat sodium test (as part of my client work, I always like to test out products/services), but I have not received any payment from his company. I hope you get some good takeaways from our chat, and if you are hungry for more on this topic, I strongly encourage you to check out Precision Fuel & Hydration’s website and especially their knowledge hub, which is packed with great info.


I hope you enjoy my conversation with Andy Blow about all things hydration as well as Formula 1 sports nutrition! Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube, or wherever you get your shows.
