Triathletes were tested in PRE and POST48h in euhydration
state according to a standardized 8-point urine color chart -PRE: 1.7 [+ or -] 0.7; POST48h: 1.8 [+ or -] 0.8- (Armstrong et al., 1994).
was achieved, the subject's height and body mass were assessed.
After all, euhydration
is the concept of the body in water balance.
The American College of Sports Medicine's recommendation for athletes to consume between 400 to 600 mlof water 2 hours before exercise should be used as a minimum standard for tennis players to help promote euhydration
(1) Each individual has a homeostatic mechanism that maintains euhydration
. However, these mechanisms may be compromised by age, illness and drug use.
Since there has been a possibility that AMS is frequently accompanied by dehydration , and intravenous saline infusion improves dehydration status , the maintenance of euhydration
using appropriate beverage intake while climbing may help to prevent AMS.
Conclusion: The American football players have lost less than 1% of their body weight, remaining in a state of euhydration
even though the urinary density reveal dehydration in two phases of the practice.
Participants were instructed to drink a bottle of fixed volume (~500 mL) of water before sleep prior to the experiment day and another bottle of fixed volume (~500 mL) of water 2 hours before reporting to the lab to maintain a state of euhydration
. On arrival at the laboratory, participants emptied their bladder and provided a urine sample, and body mass was measured (with dry polyester shorts only) (accuracy ~0.1 kg; Detecto Scales Inc, USA).
, the BML observed in 10 male subjects (BMI > 27.0) after intermittent sauna bathing sessions (six 15-minute sessions, 48.9[degrees]C, with 5-minute breaks) was determined at 0.33 [+ or -] 0.19 kg (euhydration
trial) and 1.99 [+ or -] 0.35 kg (dehydration trial).
In recovery, a beverage containing 5-10% CHO with 30-40 mEq sodium should be ingested to achieve euhydration
. A minimum of 50g/ hour of CHO should be ingested in the first 2 hours to maximize glycogen depletion?
Results from the study showed there is a clear difference in five-hour urine volume in response to the water load, between euhydration
(1236.8 [+ or -] 489.4 mL), and dehydration (375.3 [+ or -] 170.2 mL, 235.9 [+ or -] 66.0 mL, and 261.7 [+ or -] 51.8 mL at 1, 2, and 3% BM, respectively, P = 0.001).
The normal hydration status for an individual is defined as euhydration
, with parameters varying between age groups (Martini, 2004).
