Water RestEstablishing a good exercise routine isn’t easy but once that is accomplished, things just keep on rolling. Wrong! A couple serious issues can really put a stop onto your workout program: dehydration and injuries. Both can significantly affect your body but good news: you can quite easily prevent both of these problems.

First, dehydration is a serious matter. Many people don’t drink enough water on a daily basis as well as before, during, and after exercising. Thirst is the first sign that your body has had a significant loss of body fluids and replenishment is necessary. Other symptoms of moderate dehydration include dry mouth, decreased urine output, dry skin, and headaches. Dehydration can last a couple days and severe cases may lead to dizziness, fever, low blood pressure, irregular heartbeat and in the most serious cases, delirium or unconsciousness. Drink plenty of water particularly when you exercise and during hot days. Sport drinks can also be helpful to avoid extreme thirst.

Second, injuries can be another issue to hamper your workout program. When people are trying to establish an exercise routine or trying to lose weight, they often forget about a very important part of any successful workout program: rest. The human body needs rest to recover and people need to ensure they add that into the plan. A good number of injuries are the result of a tired body in need of recovery. For example, muscle injuries are often caused by fatigue. Plus, fatigue also leads to that feeling of exhaustion, tiredness, weariness, and lack of energy to do other daily activities. Studies have shown that lack of rest and fatigue play an important role in muscle strain injuries which can be easily prevented with periods of rest.

So, two easy tips to keep your workout going: drink enough water and get some rest!
