Going into the third period or overtime is when players may start to feel the effects of dehydration, according to Dr. Lawrence Spriet, Professor and Chair of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences at the University of Guelph.

Spriet suggests weighing players before and after a game to see the amount of fluids they lost.
"What we talk about in athletic circles, especially with high end athletes, is very, very mild dehydration, as little as 1.5 or 2 per cent of their body mass, has been shown to have a negative effect on their activity," said Spriet.

Lawrence studies how our muscles use carbohydrates and fats to create the large amounts of energy needed to exercise and compete in work and sport situations. He examines the value of staying physically active on health parameters in people of all ages. Lawrence is interested in whether products that are said to be performance or work enhancing - such as caffeine - actually change the way our muscles use energy. He also does practical research on how to combat the effects of dehydration in athletes who are involved in stop-and-go sports, like ice hockey, basketball and soccer.
Lawrence decided to be a part of the GFHS team because of the high quality of researchers on the team and the fact that they are taking a multi-disciplinary approach to convincing people of all ages to adopt a more healthy lifestyle.

As the glycolytic contribution to ATP turnover was not calculated by Medbo, I estimated it based on a 60% glycolytic contribution to total ATP turnover as recommended by Spriet (1990).
