Should the elderly drink water before exercising in summer

Summer morning weather is cool and pleasant, many elderly people choose to go outdoor morning exercise in the morning. Can you drink water before morning exercise? The fitness coach said: this kind of exercise is not healthy. I'm here today to introduce a kind of indispensable preparation before exercise.

Do you want to drink water before exercising?

The view that drinking water is good for health is more and more accepted by people. What I mean by drinking water is not drinking water when you are thirsty, but to establish a scientific concept of drinking water.

Many old people have the good habit of getting up in the morning to exercise. Morning is indeed a good time to exercise, but I advise you not to get up too early, because four or five o'clock in the morning is the lowest level period of human body basic metabolism. At this time, exercise is not only difficult to mobilize the positive factors of the body, but also easy to induce diseases. Do not go out too fast after getting up, because the body after a night's sleep and rest, due to breathing, urination and skin evaporation, the body's water is lost a lot, resulting in insufficient blood volume, increased blood viscosity, microcirculation stagnation.

In this state, exercise can easily induce cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, especially those with hypertension and heart disease. Drinking water in the morning can change these negative factors. At this time, the human body's stomach is in a state of emptiness, drinking water can be absorbed quickly and penetrated into the cell tissue, so that the body will replenish enough water, blood circulation will return to normal, microcirculation will be smooth, at the same time, it will promote liver and kidney function metabolism, and clean up the body garbage, thereby enhancing the body's resistance to disease, and greatly reducing the incidence rate of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.

Drinking water is good for your health, not just in the morning. In fact, for the elderly, drinking two or three glasses of water 30 to 60 minutes before each meal is very effective in preventing hypertension, hyperlipidemia, lowering blood pressure and blood lipid.

Drinking water method is very simple, every morning after drinking fresh warm boiled water 500 to 1000 ml. If you can't drink 500 to 1000 ml of water at the beginning, it doesn't matter. Take your time. Start with 200 ml of water, and then increase it until you need 500-1000 ml.

Remind: when drinking water to be slightly slow, to do not feel stomach distension is appropriate. Because the human body sleep gastrointestinal peristalsis is very slow, also in the state of repair, so to give the gastrointestinal a process to adapt to movement. After drinking water, the amount of exercise should not be too large. The amount of exercise and the way of exercise should be selected according to the age and their own conditions. Generally speaking, it is not recommended to exercise sweating, and the body should sweat slightly.
