The Hydration Debate - Making Sense of Mixed Messages
Presented by: Robert Kenefick, PhD, FACSM
June 25 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Hydration strategies used during exercise, training and competition seek to prevent over/under hydration and preserve performance. This session will discuss the two most commonly recommended and highly debated drinking strategies, programmed drinking vs. drinking to thirst. The session will review the physiology of thirst and hydration strategy research, it will discuss the factors that influence hydration during exercise (environment, exercise intensity and duration, etc.) and will make specific recommendations regarding the situations and conditions that best fit both strategies.
