Hydrate Your Body

Hydration Before and after exercise

Water is vital for your life. Without water it could result into death. Lack of enough water could distort your body’s functioning making you feel unwell. You lose water whenever the body is getting rid of waste. This could be through breathing, sweating, urine or faeces. When you are exercising, all the above processes will speed up resulting into the need for more water. This is why it is essential to hydrate before and after exercise.

Importance of water in the body

According to Margot Rutigliano, water helps with transportation of food nutrients and oxygen to body parts such as muscles and carry away waste from them.

Chemical reactions in the body take place with the help of water for example digestion of food in the stomach.

Water helps to lubricate body parts for example the joints during exercise and eyes.

Water acts as a coolant therefore regulating body temperature.

Water also contains minerals such as magnesium which are essential for body functions.

How much water do you need?

The amount of water you need will be determined by a number of factors such as the weather conditions, level of physical activity and your body size. You need about 30 – 50 ml of water per 1 kg of your body’s weight.

You can get water into your body by eating healthy foods such as vegetables or drink it directly from a bottle.

How to know that you are hydrated?

The colour of urine and level of thirst will determine the amount of hydration in the body.

Colourless urine to pale gold means that you are hydrated. Brown coloured urine is an indicator of dehydration.

How to hydrate before and after workouts

Determine your body weight and drink accordingly.

Drink about 1 litre of water before intense exercise.

Drink another cup of water during exercise. You can carry this in a bottle and drink every 15 minutes. Add some electrolytes as needed.

Drink some water with a mix of protein and carbohydrates after exercise for recovery, about 30g of carbs and 15g of protein.
