Like any elite sportsman, Javier Hernandez knows how fundamental hydration is to performance.
The former Real Madrid and Manchester United forward has scored over 100 goals across Europe in recent seasons, and he is acutely aware of the importance of remaining hydrated as he strives to stay sharp in front of goal.
“Hydration is fundamental; it is essential, it is part of the training since one is an active training and the other is regenerative or more passive if you can call it that,” Hernandez said.
Mexico’s all-time leading goalscorer, Hernandez has competed at football’s top level for both club and country for the best part of decade.
When it comes to refuelling his body, there is only one drink he trusts.
“I hydrate myself with Powerade, which is what I use. It has a lot of electrolytes so either in the gym or on the pitch it is my drink of choice.
“I use the same type of hydration when I go to the national team. They give us Powerade, which gives me the liquid and electrolytes I need.
“Like me trying to the best on the pitch, Powerade does the same, trying to develop and deliver guarantees so you can hydrate better, and your performances improves."
