Answer is Fitness - Hydration

The recommended daily water intake for athletes varies based on activity, intensity, environmental conditions, body size of the athlete and training status. To maintain peak performance during exercise and minimize water weight loss, athletes will drink plenty of water in the hours leading up to practice. It is recommended to continue taking four to six big gulps of water every 15 to 20 minutes during exercise. After exercising, drink 24 ounces of water for every pound of water weight you lose during your workout.

It is very important to drink plenty of water before, during and after any form of physical activity. Water is highly necessary for hydration to maintain the fluid level in the body. It is important to drink water on a regular basis to maintain a healthy body. The human body water requirement is fulfilled not only through directly drinking it but also through tea, juices, fruits, and other food items that you consume. Hydration is a process that maintains the optimal level of water in your body and constitutes it across your body systems. Aside from drinking water, even the consumption of any edible substance that is high on the water is meant to hydrate the body. Sweat regulates body temperature when you are exercising or in warm temperatures. And you need water to replenish the lost fluid from sweat. Staying hydrated increases energy, improves movement, recovery, and agility, all of which will improve physical performance and reduce the risk of injuries.

Drinking enough water impacts every aspect of sports performance. Staying hydrated will help reduce muscle fatigue and reduce the risk of injury. Since every athlete exercises, the core body temperature rises. In response the body sweats and by staying hydrated it replaces the water lost through sweating and is essential for thermoregulation, helping to prevent cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
