As a sport, it is important to maintain your fluid balance, especially if you train intensively. You can lose 1 to 2 liters of fluid per hour. Sufficient drinking is even the first condition for good performance. Drink enough fluid before, during and after the training. Water is also a great thirst quencher for athletes. What drinking water really does for your skin.
How do I get more energy? The body produces more heat during exercise. To prevent the body temperature from rising too much, the body evaporates extra moisture by perspiring. Physical activity also accelerates due to physical activity. The extra waste products that form thereby leave the body via the urine. Additional moisture is also required for this.
If you get thirsty, you have actually drunk too little. Another indicator is to view the color of your urine after exercise. Is it very dark in color, then you should drink more next time. An excess of fluid hardly ever occurs, unless you drink excessively. Your kidneys can process about 0.7 to 1 liter of water per hour.
Start drinking before you get thirsty. The thirst stimulus only comes through quite late. With intensive training, the signal sometimes disappears completely. That is why it is important that you pay close attention to it and drink enough, without being really thirsty. Drinking water lowers the blood pressure.
Sports drinks help maintain your fluid balance and give you energy. Drinking sports drinks during a workout can be useful if you are sporting for more than an hour and are sweating. If you play less, you can drink water as well. Remember that sports drinks contain sugar and calories. If you want to lose weight, you have to burn those extra calories. If you choose a sports drink, take a 'hypotonic' or 'isotonic' type: this is stated on the label. 'Hypertonic' sports drinks should not be taken. They can cause stomach problems because they extract moisture from the body.
Be careful with energy drinks such as Red Bull, Monster and Bullit. Stop drinking soda - Stop sugar. The word suggests that you get more energy after drinking. That is not true. Energy drinks are not made for athletes. Do not use them if you are sporting outside in the heat. If you take them during training, drink plenty of water in between. Energy drinks contain a lot of sugar. There is a risk that you get more energy than you burn and that is a waste of effort.
