Swim Poll of the Week: What Do You Drink to Hydrate During Swim Practice?


This is the Swim Poll of the Week for Thursday November 26, 2020, sponsored by Strechcordz Swim Training Products. In our last poll, we wanted to know: What do you drink to hydrate during swim practice?

Keeping good care of your body is an essential part of swimming. Because of the nature of the sport, a swimmer needs every ounce of strength they can get between grueling practices and taxing meets. Because swimmers are trying to go their person bests, every minor detail becomes major as you continue to drop time after you have been swimming for 15 years.

One of the overlooked ways to best maintain your health is before, during, and after practice hydration. Experts say that an average person should drink 64 ounces of fluids every day. This isn’t taking into account athletes, who have to perform at a high level for long periods of time—sometimes twice a day.

So which side do you lie on? What do you drink during swim practice?

Here are the results for what drinks are consumed during practice:

Water – 76%

Sport drink – 16%

Other – 8%
