Replenishing water is an important task during exercise, but many people do not develop such a habit. Instead, they like to drink water after exercise, but in fact expose themselves to danger.
- How to drink?
The best way is to take a break every 15 minutes, about two to three sips, about 100~150cc, even if you are not thirsty.
- Water or sports drinks?
If the exercise time is too long (more than one hour), you can change the water into a sports drink. In addition to replenishing water, it can also replenish the lost salt and energy.
- Can water be replaced with other beverages?
The best drink is water. Or you can choose sports drinks. The rest of the drinks are not suitable for supplementing water. If you drink a caffeinated beverage, but because of the diuretic effect, there is no way to add water, you have to drink more water.
However, because each individual’s way of sweating varies greatly, the actual amount of water consumed will vary from person to person.
- How do I know how much water to drink after exercise?
You can measure your weight before and after exercise to know. For example: my weight is 60 kg before exercise and 58 kg after exercise, then you have to drink 2 litres of water to replenish the lost water after exercise, because the difference in weight before and after exercise is almost equal to what you have loss of water.
Finally, replenishing water during exercise is very important. Whether you are exercising outdoors or indoors, prepare replenish water in time.
