- Constantly drink fluid throughout the day, don't wait until you are thirsty, its too late.
- During intense exercise consider adding an electrolyte replacement solution, especially if longer than1 hour
- If you are exercising early in the morning, pay special attention to your fluid intake the day before
- Consider weighing yourself before and after intense exercise, what ever weight loss shows up on the scale needs to be replaced with fluids.
These are just a few tips that I use to make sure that dehydration doesn't effect my exercise performance. I am by no means a doctor but if you follow these basic principles you should be just fine the next time you are out there.
Get Moving. Keep Moving.
