Author: Skratch Labs Founder & Sports Physiologist, Dr. Allen Lim Photos from: Stoked Wax, Isabela Zawistowska, TC Bukowski, Lucas Marshal, and Skratch Labs When preparing to do your best at the crag, at a comp or for a hard training session, it goes without saying that proper food and drink is a critical piece of the puzzle.

skratch LABS sport energy chews

They were undrinkable - too sweet, over-flavored, and didn’t even replace what was lost in sweat – which defeated the whole purpose, like fighting thirst with more thirst. The best athletes needed something to safely hydrate, ...
