Exercise hydration mistakes

Dehydration may occur if you don't drink enough fluids before, during, and after exercise. Dehydration affects emotional and physical health

Sumbal recommends drinking 17–20 oz of water two hours before exercise and 8 oz 20–30 minutes before working out. 

You may forget to carry water whether walking, jogging, running, or swimming. Sumbal argues drinking from water fountains is a mistake.

Hickey said the typical exerciser sweats a half-liter every 30 minutes. Depending on metabolic rate, this may reach 3-4 litres per hour.

Choosing a good sports drink helps replace electrolytes. Gatorade and Pedialyte are sports beverages meant to replenish electrolytes lost via perspiration. 

Maybe you want to relax with a cool beer. But don't drink after a workout. Alcohol isn't a rehydrating drink, adds Sumbal. It's not a good recovery drink."
