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.

Course Objectives

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

    The Hydration Debate: Making Sense of Mixed Messages

    Hydration strategies used during exercise, training and competition seek to prevent over-/under-hydration and preserve performance, but it isn’t as simple as drinking throughout exercise. Research physiologist Robert W. Kenefick, PhD, FACSM, describes the current research on hydration strategies and provides practical applications for each method.

    Course Objectives

    • Define the roles that hydration play in maintaining athlete health and performance – i.e., why hydration matters
    • Define factors to consider when developing hydration strategies for athletes
    • Identify the appropriate times to advise an athlete to drink to thirst vs. having a plan, the benefits of an individual hydration plan, and practical/effective hydration recommendations for athletes.

    Managing Post-Exercise Inflammation: From Ibuprofen to Cherries

    Most people know NSAIDs, like aspirin, can help control inflammation in the body – but what if the same results could be achieved through nutrition? Sports dietitian, Roberta Anding, MS, RD/LD, CDE, CSSD, FAND, sheds some light on the benefits of an anti-inflammatory diet to reduce the inflammation associated with exercise.

    Course Objectives

    • Summarize the physiological difference between chronic and acute inflammation as it relates to exercise, and how anti-inflammatory compounds combat inflammation.
    • Translate data and evidence-based research into informed recommendations on how to incorporate anti-inflammatory nutrients into athletes’ diets.
    • List at least five dietary sources of anti-inflammatory foods and their bioactive compounds.
