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-
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).
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).
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).
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
