Water - Applications in Sport


BodybuildingPro.com Nutrition Database Nutrition Dictionary: A Comprehensive Source of Nutritional Terms Water Water - Applications in Sport

Water is an important, life preserving substance for everyone, but has specific and very important application in athletics. Athlete's require water to cool their bodies and lubricate their joints, especially when under added stress that sports will place on the body. Water is very important, and so, lack of water is very detrimental to athletes. Staying hydrated is extremely important in sports because signs of dehydration may not emerge quickly and so not only will lack of water hinder your fitness goals, but potentially result in dehydration.

Water should be your first choice for beverages. No other substance will cool your body as quickly and keep you hydrated as well as pure water. All fluid losses are best balanced with the consumption of pure water. Water is also required regardless of what temperature you are training in. Since the signs of dehydration may appear much less quickly when a person is exerting themselves, the best thing to do is to drink an adequate amount of water regularly throughout exercise, as well as both before and after.

To stay hydrated, be sure to drink plain, cool water regularly. Drink water both prior to and after your physical activity, and certainly during it. Drink 16 ounces of fluid for every pound you lose during physical activity.
