I am reading the Andre Agassi book “Open” and it is fantastic. I have been a tennis fan since I was a kid and it is nice to see the inside of one of the greatest tennis players that has ever lived.
One of the things that Agassi talks about is something called Gil Water. Gil Water is a water, carb, electrolyte concoction that Andres coach Gil Reyes crated for Agassi to drink in different types from the night before a match to prepare, through the match, and then after the match so that Andre Agassi would be able to play his best and recover from a match.
Also apparently there are two versions. There is something that he would drink for 24 hours before a match to make sure that he was well hydrated and ready to go and then there was another for recovery after a match.
As a pro tennis player in the heat of summer you would easily dehydrate if you are not careful and in most tournaments you will play every day, or nearly every day for a week and that is why I think this recipe for Gil Water would be awesome to find.
I have looked around and cannot find a recipe for this now-famous Gil Water.
Just imagine how it would change your life if you prepared correctly for every workout and training session and then recovered correctly? Most people would not know what this would be like because they have not really tried to look at their workout as one of the central parts of their day but once you do that having Gil Water would be that much more important.
So please someone, give me the recipe.
