An Athlete’s Guide To Hydration: When, What and How Much     “A reduction of just 2% of fluid can result in degraded performance by as much as 10-20%. This is a significant amount. Consider for a moment the amount of effort that goes into training to improve by just 5%. All that, and more, can be lost by inadequate hydration.

Water is also used to cool the body through perspiration. A lack of water reduces perspiration and leads to fatigue. As fluid is reduced, the body is less able to perspire and so internal heat rises further. If this cycle is not corrected, overheating and in the worst cases hyperthermia can occur.”—Simon Kidd for Breaking Muscle
