Every day, your body needs water to rejuvenate and stay hydrated.
The water you drink is the core essence of life so it’s always important to drink pure.
Have you ever experienced any of the following while exercising?
If you have experienced any of the above, it could mean you are experiencing some level of dehydration while exercising. Talk to your trainer or doctor, and keep yourself hydrated while working out/playing a sport.
Here are two simple tests to check if you are dehydrated:
Fill in the following blanks to check your level of dehydration:-
Weight before exercise : ____ kg
Weight after exercise : ____ kg
Weight before exercise – Weight after exercise x 100 = ____ and Divide this by Weight before exercise
If the answer is greater than 1 and ≤ 5, it indicates dehydration
If the answer is greater than 5, it indicates severe dehydration
When you use the washroom during your workout, if the urine is dark yellow – amber in colour or has an intense odour, it could indicate you are dehydrated.
It’s necessary you drink about 2 litre of water every day and always make sure it’s pure and good for your health.
