Every week, our friends at St. Vincent Sports Performance (@DefiningSports) will provide three new tips that could help you achieve your athletic potential!

Food, not just liquids, have high water content. For example:

-Oatmeal is 84 percent water.
-Low-fat milk is 90 percent water.
-Coffee is 99.5 percent water.

If you make a point eat "all natural" or unprocessed foods and low sodium foods, you might consume inadequate sodium. This can hinder fluid retention and hydration.

When exercising to exhaustion drinking less water and more milk, 100% fruit juices or smoothies can quench your thirst and replace depleted glycogen stores.


Come back every Monday to get your weekly tips!
