Water is unquestionably the most important nutritional tool for athletic people. People who are physically active know that proper hydration is a vital tool for them to perform at their best; especially for the professional athletes who regularly spend hours of practice and even more as their competition nears. And by proper hydration, we mean getting the right amount of water before, during, and after their event. The amount of water an athlete needs varies based on his individual needs, depending primarily on the intensity and duration of his workout as well as other factors ranging from temperature, humidity, and altitude, to age, gender, height, and weight.
Water regulates body temperature especially during intense physical activities; it also lubricates the joints and help transport nutrients to keep you healthy. Lack of hydration can lead to muscle cramps, dizziness, lack of focus, and easily fatigued.
