Signs of Dehydration

  • Headache
  • Lightheadedness
  • Fatigue
  • Noticeable thirst
  • Irritability
  • Muscle cramps
  • Weakness
  • Difficulty paying attention
  • Dark yellow urine

Why is Hydration Important

With as little as 1% loss of bodyweight (of water), the following performance related measures are negatively impacted:

  • Aerobic endurance
  • Strength
  • Power
  • Speed
  • Agility
  • Reaction time

On Average How Many Cups of Water Are Needed on a Average Day

  • Males 9-13 years old = 10 cups
  • Males 14-18 years old  = 14 cups
  • Females 9-13 years old= 9 cups
  • Females 14-18 years old = 10 cups

Water Intake Guidelines

As general rules of thumb, the following guidelines can be helpful:  

  • Before Exercise: Drink 16 ounces of water two hours before physical activity begins, and another 8-16 ounces right before exercising.
  • During Exercise:  Every 15-20 minutes, drink at least 4-6 ounces of fluid during vigorous exercise. For less vigorous exercise, decrease the amount slightly.
  • After Exercise: Drink 16-24 ounces of water for every pound lost during physical activity. Consuming rehydrating beverages (like fruit smoothies) and eating watery foods (such as fruits and vegetables) along with salty ones can help replace lost fluids and electrolytes.
