Hydration Tips for Athletes
Many people stick to the advice that eight 8-ounce glasses of water is sufficient to stay hydrated throughout the day, but hydration needs differ depending on how active a person is and the environment he or she is in. With this short clip from KFI AM 640, you can hear some hydration tips from Dr. Carlos Reyes at Los Robles Hospital. He explains that sweating diminishes hydration, so it’s important to drink plenty of water before beginning practice. Dr. Reyes also recommends building up to intense activity gradually so that the body has a chance to adjust to the heat.
