Drinking Water During Work Out
Water is so essential. You have to drink it before, during, and after work out. Don't let your self dehydrated because you loss many water during your work out.
Staying hydrated is fundamentally important to a successful exercise regimen, in fact, for any activity for the following reasons:
1. We build up heat in the working muscles when we exercise and this causes our internal temperatures to rise. Our bodies cool by perspiring, or sweating. The evaporation of sweat on our skin is what cools us.
2. Proper hydration enables your body to turn ATP (adenosine triphosphate) into ADP (adenosine diphosphate), inorganic phosphate, and energy which is just what you need for a good exercise session.
3. Fat metabolism depends upon hydration, so if you hydrate yourself properly, you'll be helping your body turn fat into energy.
4. Keep your hydration levels up and your heart will have an easier time pumping blood through your body.
There are other many reasons for drinking water during your work out. Just make sure you don't forget to do it.
