Fluid balance

  • Remember swimming pools are hot and humid you will sweat more than you realise. It is vital you make sure you are fully hydrated before training.
  • Drinks should contain water, weak squash or watered down fruit juice.
  • Always take a drink to training.  Remember you need to drink a minimum of 500 ml of fluid every hour. This might mean bringing two drinks onto poolside if it is a two-hour session.
  • Drink small amounts of fluid throughout the training session.
