WARNING: DEHYDRATION AHEAD
*A SNAP Fitness expert enters the chat*
Regular workout is vital to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. That said, if you regularly engage in strenuous, physical activity without increasing your fluid intake, then you may be pushing your body towards the warning zone, that’s dehydration.
When you do a workout, you lose precious fluids through heavier breathing — and the fitter you are, the more you might sweat. You can also perspire more when working out because of the hot and humid conditions in Dubai. Along with that water goes many critical nutrients and electrolytes. This can quickly lead to dehydration and all of the accompanying dangers that come with it.
Long-term dehydration can lead to chronic back pain, headaches, depression, high blood pressure, digestive disorders, obesity, premature aging, kidney problems, heat cramps, and possibly even diabetes and heart disease.

Of course, now you know the importance of hydration during a workout and how it affects your overall performance.
In order to prevent dehydration and help ensure optimal workout results, you need to be consuming the right amount of fluids, before, during, and after your workout.
Water, exercise, and hydration: What’s the relation?
Water makes up two-thirds of our bodies. Water is necessary for all bodily functions.
Water is essential for the circulation of many elements, such as blood, which carries glucose, proteins, lipids, vitamins, and minerals to the various muscles and organs in our body. Water also acts as a heat pump; this function is especially important during any physical activity as it helps capture heat and carries it to the skin's surface, creating perspiration. The more intense your workout, the more you sweat to restore your body’s temperature!
If your fitness goal is to lose weight, you can do it more efficiently when you are fully hydrated. As a matter of fact, it’s been shown that those who increase their water intake will lose more weight than those who do not.
The Pretty-Easily-Actionable Hydration Plan
In order to prevent dehydration and ensure optimal workout results, you need to be getting the right amount of fluids, before, during, and after your workout.
On average, you should be consuming 500-600 ml of fluids 3 hours prior to exercising, then 200 ml during warm-up, 200 to 300 ml every 30 to 40 minutes while exercising, and finishing up with 200 ml within 30 minutes of completing your exercise regime.
