It’s true. Drinking cold water during your workout is better for you than drinking water at room temperature.
According to the authorities at the American College of Sports Medicine, the body absorbs cold water faster. It leaves the stomach more quickly than warm fluids, which allows for faster hydration.
Don’t forget to start your workout properly hydrated. That means drinking water several hours before you start sweating.
When your body sweats, it loses fluids and electrolytes. Depending on how hard you work out, you might benefit from a beverage enhanced with electrolytes.
Just remember to take it cold.
Experts also recommend adding a little flavor to your ice water. The better it tastes, the more you’ll drink.
Pretty cool, right?
