How to combat dehydration

While you are reading this article, you may have the enemy closer than you think. If you look sideways or behind you, you will not find it, but it is there, ready to act, and it is very dangerous. I’m talking about thirst.

Maybe the question seems obvious but, did you know that when you are thirsty you are dehydrated? Hydration plays a fundamental role in the body. Water is the most abundant component in our body, it is essential, we are 70% water! You can spend several weeks without eating, but only a few days without drinking. Water has several functions in our body, this is the most important of them:

Corporal temperature regulation

We drink water through drinks, food and other sources, all that amount of water must cover daily losses through the source and sweat. Our body must eliminate all that great amount of water so that there is no increase in body temperature, which would be fatal to our health. You should resort to, for example, sweating, which is a mechanism to cool the body.

But what is dehydration?

It is the loss of body fluid due to sweating throughout a physical exercise without sufficient replenishment. Dehydration has a negative impact on health and our physical performance.

So what is thirst?

The sensation of thirst is a warning signal that emits our body. You do not have to get to this end, you have to drink liquids before that happens. Thirst is nothing more than a warning sign that indicates in a late manner that we have lost too much body water and that we are facing a possible dehydration.

Thirst is a warning sign that indicates in a late manner that we have lost too much body water. Correct guidelines should be developed to combat dehydration during our daily lives.

5 golden rules to combat dehydration

1. Drink before thirst appears. Drink water, infusions, juices, broths, tea, coffee, energy drink etc …

2. Drink often, but lower volume of intake.

3. One hour before physical exercise, it is advisable to drink half a liter of fresh water

4. And during the physical activity it is recommended to drink every 15 -20 mins.

5. Watch the color of your urine, the clearer and more transparent, the better hydrated you are.

The 10 best issues of Canman

Saving the world is not an easy task… and we’re sure Canman would agree! However, because of doing so, our favorite superhero has given us some amazing and iconic moments throughout more than 80 issues and 4 seasons. Looking back in retrospective, we will now choose our 10 personal favorites:

1. Season 1 – Issue #1

1x01The first issue on any comic is the first contact the reader has with the characters and plot, so we could say it’s quintessential for creating an atmosphere that’s both engaging and interesting. In this case, it showed us an intense moment that quickly went from good to bad – and we almost felt obligated to read the next issue so we would know the outcome of the helicopter crash, presented to us in the form of the very first Canman cliffhanger.

2. Season 1 – Issue #11

1x11

The Space Saga was the first time Canman presented more complex storylines, and this issue is a perfect example of that. The Death Squadron proved to be good in the end, but in order to realize that we had to first travel to their past, through the very first flashback in the entire series.

3. Season 2 – Issue #11

2x11

Alicia gets kidnapped, Canman finally defeats Mr. Drowsiness. Action and suspense merge to produce an intense issue that sums up what Canman is all about: its characters and the frenetic action that’s constantly taking place around them.

4. Season 2 – Issue #22

2x22

So far until this point in the story, Canman didn’t get very emotional yet. However, due to Alicia’s successful rescue, we are given a glimpse at the more human side of the characters, because of their expression of emotions like joy, relief, or even love, while simultaneously confirming Alicia’s attraction to our hero, even without her recognising his true identity.

5. Season 3 – Issue #3

3x03

In what was Canman’s probably best season so far, we got to start with a bang: Dark Dog City has a new hero – Galleon – and he’s ready to take control. His secure pose, glowing armor and large red cape stand for what a hero truly means, at least in a traditional conceptual way, and the offensive stance Matt displays in front of him shows the audience how much he feels threatened by him from the first glance.

6. Season 3 – Issue #17

3x17

Pain, nostalgia and a plot twist that became a game changer, made this issue of Canman one of the most memorables of its run, and as a result, the following issues as well. In an epic battle with our yellow hero, Galleon finally gives up, apparently out of nowhere. The reason? They’re brothers! The sad flashback tainted with even sadder colors works perfectly, as it puts us in Jack’s place in a very straightforward manner, and makes us look at the story from a totally different perspective.

7. Season 3 – Issue #19

3x19

We knew the brotherly reunion couldn’t last forever right? Just when things were starting to look up, Dr. Exhaustion attacks Galleon, knocking him out and sending Canman into a frenzy. This was definitely an “oh no” moment, in which we were rooting for our heroes, wishing for a moment of peace and reconciliation after all they went through. Eventually it happened… but not without an intense battle first.

8. Season 3 – Issue #23

3x23

Serving as the last issue to close the stellar third season, our heroes finally seem at peace. It’s the closing image of the issue though that makes it work: Alicia finally joins together enough evidence to understand that Canman and Matt might be the same person.

9. Season 4 – Issue #13

4x13

The new energy drink is in town and Matt is one of its victims, changing into a green Canman after drinking it. In this issue, we’re presented with the consequences of such action: a drained Matt is found by Jack on the floor, serving as a confirmation that it was indeed our hero that stole things from various places, making us understand that sometimes even the good ones are capable of not so good deeds.

10. Season 4 – Issue #22

4x22

Donovan serves effectively as the most vicious and fierce villain yet. In this issue, and in the middle of a great battle, we get to see his dark gaze from up close, while Matt gets very lucky and transforms into Canman at the very last second, just in time to win the battle and send Donovan to prison.

What are your favorite Canman issues?

10 Crazy Sports That You (Probably) Never Heard Of

10 Crazy Sports That You (Probably) Never Heard Of

People can be quite creative when it comes to… well, everything pretty much. Now, if you had been wondering on how to challenge yourself in a different way than your friends that hit the gym everyday, then this post is for you. Below you can find a listing of unusual sports that you don’t come across everyday – providing the right amount of crazy and uniqueness you might (or might not) need…

…Either way, do not try these at home! Consider yourself warned ☺

1. Shin Kicking

If you’re looking forward to get your legs kicked, this is it! Two contestants attempt to kick each other on the shin in order to force their opponent to the ground. It has been described as an English martial art, as it originated in England in the early 17th century. #RIPWalking

2. Chess Boxing

Ever wondered what would be the hybrid child of Chess and Boxing? We did neither, but apparently we don’t have to since somebody already did – welcome to the world of Chess Boxing! The competitors fight in alternating rounds of chess and boxing, in a sport that was invented by a Dutch performance artist. #PunchTheBishop

3. Jai-Alai

Do you know when you throw the ball at a wall waiting to get it back? Usually because you’re bored? Well, there’s a sport out of it – Jai-Alai, considered by some to be the “the fastest sport in the world” because of the ball speed. #GottaHaveBalls

4. Unicycle Hockey

Like the name suggests, this sport consists on…

*drum roll*

Guys mounted on unicycles playing hockey! #WelcomeToCirqueDuSoleil

5. Underwater Rugby

If you thought Unicycle Hockey = hard, then that’s because you haven’t been watching enough Underwater Rugby matches lately. During one, two teams try to score a negatively buoyant ball (filled with saltwater) into the opponents’ goal at the bottom of a swimming pool. #NeedSomeCPR

6. Buzkashi

Buzkashi literally means “goat grabbing” in Persian. Still wondering what it’s about? Okay, we will explain: a bunch of horse-mounted players attempt to place a goat or calf carcass in a goal. Looks animal friendly, and totally not gross. #SomebodyCallPETA

7. Wife Carrying

Wife Carrying is a contest in which male competitors, husbands, race while each carrying their wives on their shoulders. The objective is for the male to carry the female through a special obstacle track in the fastest time. The best part? The prize depends on the wife’s weight in beer. Thank you Finland for such a nice sport. #ILoveMyWifeAndIKnowIt

8. Bog Snorkeling

Tired of swimming pools? You’re gonna love this: Bog snorkelling is a sporting event that consists of competitors completing two consecutive lengths of a water-filled trench cut through a peat bog in the shortest time possible. Simple and clean. #StillCoughingMud

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAh7e9d45_Y

9. Eton Wall Game

If you ever go through England and see a bunch of man getting smashed against a wall, don’t worry – it’s not a brawl, it’s the Eton Wall Game! Even though not so popular nowadays, it has been played since the early 1700s, and it consists on… well, we’re not sure of what. All we know is that there is a ball and that the last time somebody scored a goal was on 1909. Seems like fun… #NotSureWhatToHashtag

10. Bed Racing

Yup, it’s exactly what you think. #BedGoals

What are the craziest sports you’ve heard of other than these ones? Please share it with us so we can have more fun creating hashtags! #HeroesOnly

4.Triathlon

Most triathletes meet the ideal physical qualities of Olympic games: swimming, running and cycling. They are wonders of nature!

5. Open water

Running ten kilometers may seem like an easy task. However, doing so in open water is a challenge that only the bravest can undertake.

8. Jumping Fences

Jump like gazelles in the savannah is this fate of fence-jumper athletes.

Also known as Ping Pong, Table Tennis is a discipline in which Chinese athletes tend to show their devilish dexterity and fast reflexes.

15. Marathon

Marathon is the showpiece of athletics: along its 42 kilometers and 125 meters, athletes prove their worth to fatigue and weather adversities that may accompany this long test.

16. Beach Volleyball

Compared to regular Volleyball, Beach Volleyball is considered by many to be more exciting because of the surface on which it is practiced and the masterfully executed jumps that players have to do.

Undoubtedly, all disciplines will be exciting for all lovers of high-level sporting events. The biggest athletic event in the world is revving in Brazil and very soon the Olympic flame will ignite again!

Adolfo Almarza: “When I ride a bike, I feel like flying”

Adolfo Almarza is a Chilean mountain biker born in 1988 who competes in various categories such as Downhill, Enduro, and Road. Almarza lost his legs at a young age, and for this reason he uses two prosthetic legs to ride his bike, in boht local and international competitions.

When people talk about athletes with physical disabilities, it is very often assumed that these athletes are weak, talking about them with compassion or pity. However, Adolfo’s case it’s totally different. He is a fighter.

dd_adolfo_almarza_04

From the first moment you meet him, Adolfo radiates an unusual passion and energy. This is why in DARK DOG we have decided to make a little interview, to infect each other with some motivation and good vibes. We hope you enjoy it.

-What is it that you like the most about sports?

What I like about sports is that they help in every aspect of my life, not only physically, but also spiritually and emotional.

-What do you feel when you ride a bike?

It’s the time when I disconnect from the rest of the world. It’s my personal therapy, and my psychologist. I feel like flying and flowing. It’s priceless.

-Can you describe your training routines?

They are divided into several activities: training at the gym, electro stimulation, and obviously riding: Road, Enduro and Downhill. The routines will always vary according to the type of activity (races, travels or challenges). The training is adapted to the needs.

dd_adolfo_almarza_02

-Do you think it is true to say: “If it was easy … it would be called football”?

We all know that football is the most popular sport in the world. I must say that the phrase “If it was easy … It would be called football” is a disrespect to all football players. I believe that in any sport, no matter which one it is, you must work hard in order to be successful. We must respect all kinds of activities.

– Was there a moment, a day, a person or something that made you change? What made you get up and start fighting for your dreams?

Shortly after the accident, my father and my mother met a man who had also lost his legs. When I met him he showed me that it was possible to have a normal life despite having no legs. When I heard his story, I changed my mind and I decided to move forward to enjoy a normal life. From that day I began the hard work that today is paying off.

-What has been your main support all these years to overcome difficulties?

My family, my faith in God, and the trust in myself. I would like to focus on this last one, as many times you can be surrounded by the best doctors, psychologists or whoever, but if you do make an effort for yourself, nothing will really happen. Much depends on oneself.

– What has been the hardest moment of your career?

The most difficult time was in 2013 in the city of Iquique, Chile. I had an accident where I fell off a12-meter-high cliff and I broke my hip. When I knew that my hip was fractured, it went through my head that all my plans would stop for a long time, and that was really hard.

-How do you think other competitors see you?

They see me as their equal, and I like that a lot.

dd_adolfo_almarza_03

-Describe yourself in 3 words.

Determined
Positive
Motivated

-Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself being a rally / Dakar driver.

-Do you think that mountain biking should be an Olympic sport?

I think extreme sports in general should be put together in a single category, perhaps following the idea of the International Olympic Committee.

-Who are your role models in the world of sports?

For me, the biggest referent is Travis Pastrana. He is a worldwide icon of extreme sports.

Adolfo, thank for giving us this little interview. It has been a great pleasure to get to know this amazing athlete and person. Definitely a role model not only in the world of sports, but also in real life!

Tips to have the PERFECT weekend

For some people there is not such thing as the perfect weekend. For others, all weekends are wonderful and perfect. Weekends can be the best time do some special activities (for those who are fortunate enough to not work these days), and we have to make them memorable!

The best advice we can give, which will not be included in this list, is to ENJOY LIFE! And knowing what one likes is the most important thing to make the most of every minute. Resting on a sofa to recharge the batteries, eating with your in-laws, cleaning the parrot’s cage could be (or not) something fun to do! The key is to be true to ourselves. MAKE EVERY WEEKEND SPECIAL!

1. Practice sports

Sports are good for your body, and also for your mind. They help to set priorities, clear your head and, helping us to make better decisions, and set priorities. Remember, a healthy mind equals a healthy body.

01_deporte

2. Meet friends

Having an active social life is almost as healthy as doing sports. Meeting with other people, drink a DARK DOG (or two), or go for a walk or to an event, can be very fun! Anything that helps you laugh is always good. Share with those you love the most your best anecdotes, but also those embarrassing moments you lived long time ago, but you will never forget.

02_amigos

3. Become a legendary gamer

Use your spare time to make some progress on all video games you love. You’ll probably be many hours in front of your screen. If you feel tired, remember there is a wonderful solution for staying awake and alert for longer. A hint? It is stored inside yellow cans with a black dog at the front.

4. Increase your cultural horizons

Human beings are the animals on the surface of the planet able to think and create the most amazing things. Investing some of your time to visit exhibitions of urban art, or live graffiti creations is a great idea to spend the weekend! And if you feel inspired, you can also create your own artworks. Show the world your artistic talent!

5. Dance and sing like there’s no tomorrow

Listening to music is one of the few activities capable to release thousand of hormones and generate a lot of satisfaction. Go dancing. Sing in a karaoke, or practice both with your Xbox and PlayStation. It doesn’t matter! Let your body go as you enjoy to the rhythm of your favorite tunes.

6. Read a lot

Reading, like you are doing right now is one of the most intense hobbies you can have. You can choose to read novels, tutorials, newspapers, anything is valid! From DARK DOG we suggest you to read the “Canman Comic”, which is available for free at Canman’s website.
