Questions and Answers
Q: Is it better to drink fluids
before or after a workout in the summer time?
The answer is "all of the above".... be
sure to drink before, during and after exercise. Exercising
in the heat can cause dehydration, which may lead
to fainting, heat exhaustion or even heat stroke.
In fact, it is best to drink more than just what you
need to satisfy your thirst, especially if you are
older. Older bodies don't always reliably signal the
body's true need for fluids. So drink up!
