Fit Body Sports Medicine~~5 Necessities for a strong, healthy & fun season

Posted on August 14, 2018 at 3:05 PM

Fall sports are officially underway! It is so exciting starting fresh and getting back to the grind. But fall sports can bring some risks as well. Regardless of your athletic level, you need to make sure you are prepared. This season can bring rugby, football, soccer, golf, volleyball and others. Many outdoor sports and some indoor as well. Here is what needs to be on your list to have a healthy, strong and fun season.

1. Make sure your physical is updated with your physician. You may feel this is only for youth athletes, but getting a physical can prevent many difficulties before they are an issue and many times before you realize there may be a problem. Everything from heart issues and kidney function to diabetes. It has saved lives.

2. Drink water and stay hydrated. Regardless if you are practicing indoors or out, a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day is needed to be consumed. This is pretty general and needs to be tweaked individually by location and how much you sweat. Your best bet is to ( in addition to the 8 glasses) weigh yourself before and after each workout. Drink one cup of water for each pound lost. This will prevent dehydration during warm weather, prevent heat illness and keep your body ready the next day’s workout.


3. Know when to also drink electrolytes. Water keeps you hydrated and is very important especially if you have been in the heat or working out for less than an hour. However, if you have been working out in practice or competition for more than an hour at one time you need to replenish electrolytes. There are several drinks to choose from and each is formulated just a bit different. Some can cause stomach upset, so there could be some trial and error till you find a drink that meets your need. Or just drink what your athletic trainer is serving that day!

4. Timing of meals can be important. I am not talking about what you should eat right before competition but making sure you are refueling for the next day. By eating within an hour after your workout you can replenish your energy stores for your workout the next day. This allows you to perform with the same effort each day. In addition this also allows your body to make sure there are enough building blocks available to repair any damage (microtears) from your workout. This can prevent overuse injury.

5. 7 hours of consecutive sleep. This is an average of what most people need and for competing athletes it is very important. Having a set sleep schedule puts your body in a functioning rhythm and allows your body to reset, refresh and heal from the the day before. It helps the brain to function properly. When we get out of the proper rhythm, fatigue can set in at the most inappropriate times. This especially important for those athletes that travel long distances, across times zones or have long flights that can also cause jet lag.

I hope everyone is ready for their upcoming season. Stay healthy! Be Strong & have FUN:)
