The following tips will help you stay hydrated:
- Drink small amounts of water frequently rather than large amounts less often.
- Drink cool beverages to lower your core body temperature and reduce sweating.
- Track your sweat loss by weighing yourself both before and after exercise. For every pound lost through sweat, drink 16 to 24 oz. of water. Your body weight should be back to normal before your next workout.
- Pay attention to the amount and color of your urine. A large volume of clear urine is a sign that you are well-hydrated. Smaller amounts or dark yellow urine can indicate dehydration.
