We all know that regular fitness training means more stamina, and more stamina means better performance, both for work and play. Working out can improve your posture, tone your muscles and, if your routine is geared toward calorie-burning, help you to manage your weight.
As with any other form of exercise, hydrating and fuelling your body properly helps you to perform at your peak for longer, giving you more benefit from your session.
- Sip on fluids during and after exercise. Don’t use thirst as a guide: it’s not a precise way to track your fluid levels.
- Don’t forget the sodium you lose in sweat. When you’re exercising, sodium needs to be replaced and this is where a sports drink can really be of help.
- Check how much fluid you’ve lost by weighing yourself before and after exercise.
