Stay Hydrated When You’re Playing Outside
With all this warm and sometimes HOT weather…are you drinking enough water/fluids??
Research shows that your heart rate increases eight beats per minute for every liter of sweat lost during exercise. This increased heart rate, combined with inefficient cooling, causes your temperature to elevate. This not only compromises performance, but can lead to heat illness as well.
Most experts recommend drinking at least a cup (four to 10 ounces) of water every 15 minutes of exercise. That gives your body the fluid to “sweat out” and thus cool off your body.
What do you usually bring to drink when you play sports?
