Water, Water Everywhere-Be Sure You Drink It

When exercising the general rule is to drink 24 ounces of fluid, especially water, two hours before exercising, followed by 8 ounces of water or sports drink (Gatorade) for every 20 minutes during your exercise.

Be on the look out for signs of heat-related dehydration, which include muscle cramps, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, and a sudden cessation of sweating. If you experience any of these findings, stop exercising and immediately drink some cold water.
