We all know hydration is key to athletic performance, but getting the right amount of fluid is not an easy task. Plus, every day can be different depending on external factors like weather, altitude, and required output as well as biological factors like age, weight, and diet. When our bodies are low on water, however, they give us warning signs.
So, how do you know if you’re drinking enough during training and events? Performance Nutrition Coach Ken Hoover helps us identify some indicators, gives us tips for staying on course with our intake, and lets us know when to use Honey Stinger's Rapid Hydration Mixes.
Signs of dehydration can be difficult to recognize because they present like many other common ailments such as headache and fatigue. But dehydration can be a serious problem with potentially punishing consequences, and by the time signs are outwardly visible, you’re already experiencing negative effects.
The best advice for everyone at all levels of play, exertion, and endurance is not to let yourself get depleted. Dehydration can negatively affect your performance and set your body up for injuries that sideline you for the long-term. Hydration should be your friend in sports and competition (as well as your least expensive insurance policy) so you’re healthy, strong, flexible, and on course to accomplish your goals!
Stay hydrated, stay well!
