How to Calculate Sweat Rate and It’s Use

Exercising in the heat without adequate hydration can cause dehydration, impacts heart rate and body temperature regulation.

The more dehydrated the athlete gets, the negative effect on his/her performance increases.

Excessive dehydration can increase the risk of heat stroke. It could result in acute kidney failure.

Active cooling strategies – ice towels, ice vests or cool water sprays could serve as additional guard against dehydration.

Dehydration during exercise in cooler weather conditions can be as high as in hot conditions.

For indoor sport, people train with more clothes on. Actual sweat rates can be close to those in warmer conditions.

At high altitudes, the oxygen supply is thinner, air drier. It results in more fluid being evaporated from the body passively.

For extreme conditions use your sweat rate to guide fluid intake.
