Importance of Water in Sports Performance

Water is an essential part of all living organisms…

Water regulates your body temperature, It also helps transport nutrients to give you energy and keep you healthy. If you’re not properly hydrated, your body can’t perform at its highest level. You may experience fatigue, muscle cramps, dizziness, or more serious symptoms.

9 Signs of Dehydration

  1. Noticeable Thirst
  2. Muscle Cramps
  3. Weakness
  4. Decreased Performance
  5. Nausea
  6. Headache
  7. Fatigue
  8. Lightheaded feeling or dizziness
  9. Difficulty in paying attention

A simple way to make sure you’re staying properly hydrated is to check your urine. If your urine is consistently colorless or light yellow, you are most likely staying well hydrated. Dark yellow or amber-colored urine is a sign of dehydration.

There are no exact rules for how much water to drink while exercising because everyone is different. You need to consider factors including your sweat rate, the heat and humidity in your environment, and how long and hard you are exercising.
