The life of an athlete is significantly different from the rest. Of course, it is also very important at what level, age and the amount of training the athlete has. Every man should strive towards optimal welfare which would mean the highest possible state of physical and mental well-being.
Playing sports means, the body consumpts extra energy, that needs to be replaced, otherwise we risk injuries, exhaustion, decline of the immune system and consequently, diseases. A football player, has greater nutritional needs than any normal mortal.
For example: Football is a sport with extremely high intensity, that requires great mental and physical endurance. It is necessary to pay attention in football to many things: the ball, the movement of your players, the movement of your opponents, attacking phase, defending phase, what will be the best move at a given moment .... All this requires, the players concentration for 90 minutes, and for that you need to be prepared, both mentaly and physicaly.

With a balanced diet, several times a day, the athlete puts into his body enough of everything that it need for a healthy and well functionable body and brain. Unfortunately, the fact that the ratio of introduction of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals is often disproportional, therefore it is necessary to turn to good nutritional supplements. However, be aware that dietary supplements can not replace a balanced and varied diet.
Drinking fluids throughout the day is already important for normal sport inactive people, because it is considered that in the event of loss of only 1% -2% of liquid, we feel a decline in performance of the brain and muscles. We should daily enter at least 2-2.5 liters of fluid (approx. 1 liter is enter via food).
Why do we drink liquid?
It is essential for normal functioning of the human organism
It is the solvent for water-soluble vitamins
It acts as a lubricant for joints
Excellent mean of transport
For the beginning, try to write down the amount of fluid you drink throughout the day, because this will eventualy become a habit for you. How to calculate how much fluid we have lost during training? You simply weight yourself before and after training. It is even better if you do this more than once, and then calculate the average, because the result will be more accurate. The difference in weight is equal to the amount we need to replace. Gram or two lost fat in this case is negligible.
Healthy clean water is the most appropriate thing for hydration and rehydration.

For an athlete the most important condition is before, during and after exercise, namely:
The last hour or two before an intensive training an athlete should consume 0.5 liters of fluid as this allows for better hydration
During exercise you should drink moderately every 15-20 minutes (at the time of the game the difference is bigger)
Immediately after an intense workout (first 15- 25 minutes) the Athlete should replace the lost carbohydrates and electrolytes (most easily by drinking a rehydration drink)
During the three hours after an intense workout drink more than you should according to the calculations. In the event of a loss of 1 liter, drink 1.5 to 2 liters of fluid. In this time, it is important to replace the lost minerals.
An active athlete can not satisfy himself by only drinking water, because we lose important minerals during high intensity workouts (over 90 minutes), like sodium, calcium, potassium, magnesium and others that need to be replaced. A too big amount of water increases urine production, which can be disturbing, especially during training sessions or matches. It also washes away minerals from our body and reduces the feeling of thirst.
At night, during sleep, the body consumes water and expels it with breathing and sweating, that is why it is good to drink a glass of water when we wake up. According to certain studies, this glass of water has a remarkable effect on our well-being during the day. You should trust it and try it. It applies to remember: athlete sweats in order to cool down.
The composition of muscle cells is 75% of water, that is why dehydrated muscle cells regenerate poorly and each training without drinking water is overall less effective, than if the body suitably hydrates and rehydrates.
The approximate value of the composition of sweat (intensive exercise) is following (mg/L):
Na1200, C 1000, K 300, Mg 30 Sulphate 25, P 15
Zn 1.2 Fe 1.2 Mn 0.006, Cu 0.006, Vitamin C 50
When you buy a drink, be aware that all of the above must be replaced.
1. 3 to 4 hours before the intensive training / match (after lunch): 0.5 liters of water 2. 30 minutes before the intensive exercise / match: 1.5 to 2.5 ounces (hydration drink) 3. During intense exercise: every 15-20 minutes 1 to 1.5 ounces and not more than 1 l / h 4. During the match: at least at halftime 5 After an intense workout / match: immediately - rehydration drink, after that, there are no restrictions
