Have you ever tried exercising when your body wasn’t optimally hydrated?
Recently I took a week-long vacation, and I spent many of those mornings at a local gymâ€”without air conditioning.
The Cost of Thirst
I was in a hurry, and didn’t drink quite enough water after I woke up. Oh well, what’s the worst that could happen?
According to the Australian Sports Commission, the average person loses about 34 ounces of water during just one hour of exercise. That’s not taking into account the effects of prolonged physical activity or intense heat, though.
I was almost through with my workout, but I’d run out of gas well before that. I felt weak, sore and dizzy. When I went to stand up from one of the weight machines, my head was spinning and I tripped. Luckily I didn’t hit my head on anything, but that’s the last time I skimp on water before exercising.
When you take into account that we naturally wake up in a state of dehydration, then subtract the 34 ounces I sweat off during my workout…you can see how I was ignoring my body’s cries for pure waterâ€”and lots of it.
Water Is Fuel: Don’t Run on Empty
This is your brain on dehydration.
That’s why before I go to the gymâ€”every timeâ€”I make sure to fill up on Tyent’s alkaline ionized water. I take a couple bottles with me too, because I know I’ll need them to stay at the top of my game and avoid accidents.
But don’t take my word for it.
Adequate fluid replacement helps maintain hydration and, therefore, promotes the health, safety, and optimal physical performance of individuals participating in regular physical activity. -American College of Sports Medicine
You’ve heard it before, but your body is over 80% water…and if I’m drinking poor quality fuel, what does that make me? That’s why I only drink the highest quality water from Tyent.
