Well yes and no. Since Surge has added electrolytes (Hence teh SmartWater ref), I figured that it might be relevant to this thread also. I guess no one else did.
I’m genuinely curious: why would you think it was relevant? (You also posted your same comment in the Surge thread.) I think you might be confused about what Surge is used for.
Surge is a good product but has limited uses. Most of us only use it, if at all, after a heavy lifting session. I suppose you could use it after HIIT, and I would use a half-dose every now and then. But it’s hardly as versatile as water. (I’m shaking my head in bewilderment as I type that last line.)[/quote]
I know what Surge is used for but I just realzed it also had a broader use with electrolyte replenishment (on hindsight I did not know that Surge also had that original intended purpose).
I looked up SmartWater after I read your post and I read that article. Then I looked at Surge this morning and realized that they had reduced the sodium (350mg -> 50mg) and added Potassium and Phosphorus.
So I thought -> Surge Improved by added electrolytes -> Some people using Gatorade instead of Surge (cost or electrolytes abundance) -> Surge has less Sodium (no hypo/hypernaturemia) so you would not need SmartWater during training.
When I read about SmartWater I immediately thought about using it in my Surge during training.
