Athletes Benefit from Hydration Awareness & Immediate Feedback

IRONMAN Athlete Andrew Murray improves hydration strategy after regular MX3 use

Andrew Murray is a middle-distance triathlete who competes in IRONMAN 70.3 races, also known as a Half-IRONMAN. The "70.3" refers to the total mileage covered in the race, which consists of a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike ride, and a 13.1-mile run.

MX3 Diagnostics sponsored Murray’s entry for several IRONMAN races, including the IRONMAN 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championship Cairns in 2019.

MX3 Helps Athletes Implement Hydration Strategies

In his own words, middle-distance triathlete Andrew Murray shares how he benefited from using MX3’s hydration testing system during training and competition:

“The MX3 diagnostics hydration testing system has been an extremely useful tool for both my preparation and racing of long-distance triathlons and running events. The first and most obvious benefit is the awareness of hydration it promoted – it is quite surprising how underemphasised hydration preparation pre-race is compared to the other aspects of nutrition, such as carb loading.

Secondly, it allows you to very quickly and easily measure your hydration before, during or after strenuous workouts or races – giving you immediate feedback on whether or not you have prepared properly, as well as what sort of fluid losses you experience. All this information is automatically saved to your phone for easy comparison to baseline levels.

Put simply, the MX3 system has been extremely useful in my attitude change towards hydration, as well as in my implementation of hydration strategies, and not surprisingly has had a flow-on effect to performance.”
