Why the body retains water during summer and what to do about it

Are you someone that exercises regularly and strives to maintain peak performance? If so, you may be familiar with the frustration of water retention. This common problem doesn’t only lead to uncomfortable bloating and weight gain, but it also affects your sports performance. With summer approaching, the heat can exacerbate the problem, making it critical to understand the causes and natural ways to eliminate water retention. 

In this article, we’ll explore why water retention occurs and provide practical solutions to help you feel your best, both in and out of the gym. 

The importance of hydration

Why active people struggle with fluid build-up during summer 

One common cause of water retention is dehydration. When you exercise, you lose fluids and electrolytes through sweat, and if you don’t replenish those fluids adequately, the body may hold onto water as a way to regulate its fluid balance. 

Additionally, a person’s daily water needs are highly dependent on the air temperature. Hotter temperatures increase sweating and, as a result, water requirements. In the summer, body weight can go up by several kilogrammes due to increased water retention. 

Finally, intense physical activity can cause tiny tears in the muscle fibres, leading to inflammation and fluid build-up in the surrounding tissues. This also contributes to water retention. 

The negative impact of water retention on sports performance 

For active men, water retention can be particularly detrimental to athletic performance. Excess water weight can make it harder to move as quickly, as it can be painful to move the affected areas. Fatigue and lethargy are also quite common side effects since the limbs become heavier and more sensitive. 

It also interferes with muscle definition, making it harder to achieve a lean and toned appearance. If you have worked hard for that physique, we bet you don’t want it to stay hidden, right? And did you know that water retention is actually the number 1 enemy of weight loss? 

Tips for reducing excess water weight  

Whether you’re an avid gym-goer or you enjoy outdoor sports activities, you need to understand the causes of water retention and take steps to reduce it naturally. By doing so, you can improve your sports performance, feel more comfortable during workouts, and achieve fitness goals more effectively. 

Fortunately, there are several natural ways to eliminate water retention: 

1. Stay hydrated

Drinking enough water can help flush out excess fluids and prevent dehydration, which can also cause water retention. Aim for at least eight glasses of water per day and avoid sugary drinks and caffeine, which can dehydrate the body. Don’t forget to hydrate during your workout either – aim for 150-200 ml per 20 minutes. 

2. Eat foods that are rich in electrolytes 

Foods rich in electrolytes, such as nuts, spinach, and watermelon, help regulate the body’s fluid balance, which can help reduce bloating and swelling caused by excess fluid build-up. Additionally, electrolytes can help replenish fluids lost through sweat during exercise, preventing dehydration.  

3. Combat water retention with a water drainer
