Hydration Will Be Key For Beijing Bound Olympians, What Every Athlete Must Know
Date:7/25/2008

Whether you are an Olympian, Professional Athlete, Elite Amateur or Weekend Warrior, there are Five Things You Need to Know about Hydration to Boost Sports Performance, from the D.I.S.C. Spine and Sports Center

Marina del Rey, Calif. (Vocus) July 25, 2008 -- America's premier athletes are heading to Beijing following years of intense training, conditioning and sacrifice in the hopes of capturing an Olympic medal and securing their place in history. All the tireless preparation could simply vanish into thin air should they overlook a few simple steps that will keep their bodies properly hydrated and in peak performance condition.

Think this can't happen? Think again and think back to Sydney 2000 when track star Suzy Hamilton literally collapsed on the last turn of the last lap of the 1500m race. Following the race we learned that she had little urine output and that it was dark, a sure sign of dehydration, as a result of her transpacific flight, anti-inflammatory and diminished fluid intake.

Whether someone is an elite professional or amateur athlete or a weekend warrior, dehydration is a common problem in many sports. It is often overlooked and underestimated.

The five keys for proper sports hydration are:

1) Weigh yourself before and immediately after training or competing
2) Drink to tolerance/comfort during training or competition
3) Drink 16 ounces per pound of bodyweight lost during training or competition, within six hours. If you are competing the next day, drink 24 ounces per pound of bodyweight lost.
4) Drink more diluted liquids before and during completion or training and more concentrated fluids after training
5) Rule of thumb -- When flying have 8 ounces of fluid per hour of flight

"The problem with dehydration is it reduces sports performance," said
