    Dehydration

    Hi everyone. I've been training harder than normal lately, doing about 15 hours of training per week. I've also been making a conscious effort not to slack off on any excercises the coaches give me. If it was all BJJ, I think I wouldn't have much of a problem, but it's BJJ/Striking/Conditioning/Weights. When it comes to conditioning, the coaches really go nuts, nobody in the class is fit enough to do all of the excerices without taking water breaks and resting for minutes right in the middle of class, but I've been working on getting through without even stopping. I also stopped taking any rests when doing my circuit training with weights. I just walk from one station to another, no breaks between sets. The results are showing, I'm in pretty good shape and have a lot of energy. I can feel myself getting stronger.
    However, all of this has been causing me to sweat a lot. I drink during class and after class what feels like a liter or two of water, but maybe that's not enough. I'm thirsty often. The fact the temperature is high right now where I live ( northern CA) isn't helping either. My weight flactuates by up to 5 pounds daily, though it doesn't change on average, if evaluated over the course of a few days. For the last three days I've been waking up with my mouth so dry that it hurts. It'd feel better after I gulped down some water or juice.
    Anyone have similar experinces? Advice on how to deal with it?

    Remember that water by itself isn't enough. To rehydrate you need things like potassium and other minerals. The experts will know more, though. I guess they'll be here any minute now.

    Milk is indeed a good suggestion, whole milk unless you are trying to cut fat.

    15 hours is a pretty good amount. I usually do about 6-7 hours MA per week, 4-5 weight training.

    What supplements are you taking before/after workouts?

    Peanut butter sandwiches+ whey protein with soy milk, or even water. Lots of granola, oatmeal, nuts.

    Someone told me that soy products will make you produce estrogen instead of testosterone, but I don't know how realistic that is.

    Fill a gallon jug with water in the morning. Carry it everywhere you go during the day. Finish it by the time you sleep.

    Don't forget OJ, thirst quencher extraordinaire and high-calorie.

    1) White space is your friend.

    2) Sip on water (or other non-diuretic fluids) throughout the day.

    3) Rehydrate during physical activity unless you have a very good reason not to. If I ever had a coach who was stupid enough to deny me water during training, I'd find a new coach.

    4a) Milk's great as a drink for during the day, and chocolate milk is a great recovery drink, but I wouldn't use it to rehydrate during physical activity - you can't drink as much of it, the solutes in it make it slower to digest, and although I've got a huge threshold for dairy, I'd still get an upset stomach from drinking milk during free-rolling. You can try it, but I'd be surprised if it helped.
    4b) Whey is a milk product (whey is 20% of milk protein - casein is the other 80%), so be careful supplementing with whey if you're allergic to milk.

    5a) hpr is almost correct - when you sweat, you not only sweat out water but salt (sodium). As such, you'll want to restore both your water and sodium levels when rehydrating.
    5b) hpr is also more correct than he knows - a dilute solution of salt, glucose and water will actually be absorbed faster by the large intestine (IIRC) than plain water. This is the logic behind Gatorade, etc. - although (again, IIRC) most sports drinks have higher concentrations of solute than optimal. Try cutting them with water.

    Milk before any cardio intensive activity tends to make me sick.

    I tend to have better luck with drinking water throughout the day before hand, then when I am actually training I will take one gulp of water every once in a while.

    You don't want to drink too much because it will make you sick.
