Drinking while exercising?
How do you do it? I hear you should stay hydrated during a workout. I have tried, but I get such a bad cramp, I can't even drink much prior to a workout or I feel like I could die. Is there some kind of tolerance that needs to be built? Or something wrong with me? Tips?
You have to drink before and after
But during the workout you will have to drink not much
What happens to you is normal.
If your workout is less than an hour, you don't have to drink at all during
Try to stay hydrated at all times, drink consistently throughout the day. That way your hydrated enough to work out anytime and the quickest way to hydrate after exercise is drinking hot water or cooled water from the kettle so the body doesnt have to bring the water upto core temperature. During exercise just take on a little bit at a time. :-)
As long as your properly hydrated is does not matter..listen to your body...if its making u sick don't do it!!! If your thirsty your body will tell you ! Look at kids whn they are playing outside they are running jumping etc. Yet they dnt load up on water before or after and carry a water bottle with thm to hydrate during their physical excertions..they just play and whn their thirsty they run in and say I'm thirsty get something to drink and are off again.... it works the same way.. ur body does not knw what kind of physical excertion is taking place be it sports exercisie hiking or playing free tag
You should be hydrating all day long. You should be consuming at least 8 glasses per day. Over hydrating before you run can cause more harm then help. If your hydrated properly before you run, during your wourkout you will only be maintaining your fluids as needed. (small sips or a few trips to the water fountain as another suggested). If you run first thing in the morning I highly recommend drinking at least 2 glasses right before bed. Also be sure to consume a small amount of electrolytes before and after workout. ♧
I found that what gave me cramps was actually not the water, but my food not being digested. Eat 1.5 or 2 hours prior to your workouts and maybe you'll feel better.
Be hydrated all day... drink plenty of water during your day and few before workout and obviously after.
