Quick Tip Tuesday: Workout Hydration

We’ve all heard that it’s important to hydrate before, during and after a workout. The problem is, when I drink a lot of water directly before or during a workout, I feel it sloshing around in my stomach and it sometimes make me feel sick. It definitely slows me down. My advice is to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Stop drinking for 30 minutes to and hour before a workout, then take a medium-sized swig of water every 5-10 minutes during a gym workout- maybe spaced further apart for running workouts. It keeps me from getting too thirsty without filling my tummy too full of water.
