Now the summer season is here, learning about how to stay hydrated is one of the most essential things you need to do, especially if you want to do your exercises outdoors. All women (mothers included) need to drink around eleven water cups each day, while men about fifteen. Now around twenty percent of this quantity will generally come from the food we eat and rest you will have to drink it. Below you will find three sipping rules that you can follow when making outdoor exercises.
Saying Cheers with Beer Might Help
There are good news if you are one of those persons who enjoy drinking beer from time to time. Men who want to rehydrate after a basic treadmill run using beer followed by an unlimited supply of water are just as much hydrated as the other men who choose to hydrate themselves only with water, same quantity. Manuel J. Castillo, medical doctor at the University of Granada says: “If you drink beer in moderation, you`ll hinder your recovery and does not impair with your hydration.” After all, beer is 95% water. So if you want to satisfy your thirst, you can go ahead and drink beer. Is just as fine! But be sure you`ll drink water after that.
Take a Moment to Chill before You Sweat
If you want to set yourself a new record in a 10.000 triathlon, forty five minutes before this slurp an ice slurry, which is basically a snow cone without flavor. Studies show that when runners did it before a 10.000 triathlon in weather of 80 degree, on average they in fact ran fifteen seconds faster. The study was made at the International Journal of Sports Medicine. According to Jason Kai Wei Lee, an investigator from DMERI from Singapore, says: “The ice slurry raised the storage capacity of the heat of the body, and this let runners to push their limits.”
Use Salt to Fuel Up
According studies performed at the International Journal of Sport Nutrition, a bit of salt before your outdoor exercise might in fact help keep your hydration at bay. When cyclists have chosen to eat noodle soup (that had around 1.400 mg of sodium) forty five minutes in advance their exercise, they retain more water during the exercise than those who didn`t. Kelly Pritchett, professor of nutrition at the University of Washington, says “Sodium might help sometimes to encourage your thirst.” This might help even more if you are choosing to exercise at high intensities or for over an hour. A small cup of tomato juice with sodium is enough.
