SSE #207: Dehydration and Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage: Implications for Recovery

Dehydration (>2% reduction in body mass) can result in decreased performance and delayed recovery.  Although it has not been largely studied, there is limited evidence that suggests that dehydration may exacerbate exercise induced muscle damage (EIMD) and prolong recovery.  The proposed mechanisms for the adverse effects of dehydration on EIMD include alterations in cell volume and ion flux, cell membrane disruption, impaired excitation-contraction coupling, decreased skeletal blood flow, modified red blood cell properties, and/or intensification of maladaptive signaling.

Course Objectives

  • Utilize the information presented in this SSE to create an informed opinion on the role of dehydration has on EIMD. 
  • Describe the effects of hyperthermia has on skeletal muscles and the influence hyperthermia has on EIMD.
  • Discuss the presented mechanisms of the adverse effects of dehydration on EIMD and how it negatively affects performance.

Indian Spices and Health

Indian spices have been historically regarded as powerful health aids, but scientists have begun researching specific effects only recently. This session will provide a review of scientific support for various Indian spices and their effects on health. The session will provide an understanding of each Indian spice, including its origin and proposed uses. In this session, Sports Dietitian Susan Kundrat will also summarize recent scientific evidence related to health benefits and outline practical applications and recommendations for the use of Indian spices, specifically turmeric, ginger, fenugreek, and cinnamon.

SSE #196: New ideas about hydration and its impact on the athlete's brain, heart and muscles

Dehydration is known to impair physical performance.  Additionally, dehydration and hyperthermia take a toll on other systems and organs of the body such as the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems and the brain.  Dehydration is influenced by environmental conditions as well as the athlete’s training status, thus influencing an athlete’s core temperature The impact of dehydration varies among individuals and depends upon factors such as training status, intensity of exercise, environmental conditions and acclimatization status.  Hydrating during training or competition by consuming fluids is the best way to prevent or alleviate the effects of dehydration on performance.

Course Objectives

  • Utilize the information to apply a hydration strategy to your personal or your athlete’s training or competition strategy.   
  • Describe the effects that dehydration and hyperthermia have on submaximal and maximal endurance capacity in varying environmental conditions. 
  • Discuss the systems that are negatively affected by dehydration and hyperthermia and how those systems influence each other when dehydrated.

Hydration: One Size Does Not Fit All

Hydration for sport is more than a health and safety concern during warm weather. Suboptimal hydration can also cause decreased performance in a variety of sports and environmental conditions. By identifying individuals’ fluid needs and developing replacement plans around those needs and the constraints of a given sport or activity, athletic trainers can improve their athletes’ performance. This session will provide athletic trainers the tools to design better hydration plans through evidence-based practices for the assessment of fluid needs and consult with a variety of physically active individuals beyond one size fits all advice.

  • Identify current paradigms for the assessment of fluid needs for the physically active
  • Compare and contrast different fluid replacement strategies for optimizing performance
