The class is being taught by Becky Beiter, RN with the Coshocton County Kids America Hosting Free Arthritis Exercise Class Page 3Kids America Monthly Newsletter May 2007 Kids America Sports Complex is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. T-Ball a Big Hit at KA General Health District. Funding for the 8-week class was provided through a grant from the CDC Chronic Disease and Health Promotion Program and the Ohio Department of Health Arthritis Pro- gram. Classes continue through June 21st. A Water for the Wise Drink lots of water. That’s what they always say. But how much do you need and how does exercise factor into your need for fluid? Well, I’ve got your an- swers. Two to three liters of fluid will fulfill the average adult’s daily requirements (AFAA and Kleiner 1997; 2007). You may need to increase your intake due to exercise especially if it is intense activity, during warmer conditions, or if you sweat more than average. Here are a few recommendations concern- ing exercise and hydration. Remem- ber that everyone is different and basic guidelines such as these are not meant to be exact. You will know you have met your body’s need for fluid by checking your urine regularly. It should be relatively odorless and clear or pale yellow (Kleiner 2007). BEFORE EXERCISE Consuming 16 ounces of fluid two to three hours prior to your workout fol- lowed by an additional 8 ounces 10 to 20 minutes before is good preparation for exercise (Kleiner 2007). No one performs well dehydrated and it is esti- mated that performance levels can drop roughly 40% or more under these conditions (Kleiner 2007). DURING EXERCISE It is recommended that you consume 3 to 8 ounces of extra fluid every fifteen minutes of exercise (Brooks 2004). En- durance athletes or fitness enthusiasts who exercise for longer than an hour may consider a sports drink to replace glycogen and minerals lost during their workouts. Sports beverages contain calories in the form of sugars that are meant to give you energy to perform well when exercising for long periods of time. Beware of these calories espe- cially if weight loss is one of your goals. If you are trying to lose weight you may want to stick to consuming these drinks during exercise and choose or dilute one with water so that it contains roughly 40 to 80 calories per 8 ounces of liquid (Brooks and Runner’s World 2004). AFTER EXERCISE Weighing yourself after your workout can help indicate if you are consuming adequate fluid during your workout. Hop on the scale before and after your workout. For every pound of weight lost it is suggested that you consume an ad- ditional 2 to 3 cups of fluid after your workout and continue to hydrate for the next four hours comfortably (Kleiner 2007). SOME SIGNS OF DEHYDRATION (Kleiner 2007) Fatigue Headache Light-headedness Dry mouth Difficulty swallowing Painful urination Participants also need not be a mem- ber of Kids America to participate. For more information, contact Becky Beiter at the Coshocton County Health Department at 740.295.7307 or visit “Play ball,” shouts the umpire! And play they did. Shorties Spring T-Ball, played indoors at Kids America, was another huge success. Over 60 children participated in this activity, designed for kids ages 3 to 6. Games continue through May 10th. Registrations are currently being ac- cepted for the summer session of Shor- ties T-Ball. Games begin July 28th at KA. “Batter up!” By Amy J. Duncan ACE-certified personal trainer
