We all know dehydration is a massive obstacle for any athlete, especially when it comes to an endurance event. If you’re looking to tackle your water intake, it’s essential to take a measured and strategic approach.
If you are undertaking a significant event or competition, be sure to consume enough to lose no more than 2% of your pre-event weight in water.
This should be calculated over multiple training sessions (pre and post exercise). Using this to measure pre and post fluid loss can help you discern patterns and make the right choice about your intake.
Tracking this for multiple weeks will allow patterns to emerge and make the right choice about your fluid consumption.
