Fitness Myth #10: A sports drink is a workout must-have. Staying
hydrated during a workout is important, but unless you’ll be sweating
it out for 90 minutes or more, don’t drink anything but water.The
body’s not working so hard that it’ll run out of electrolytes or
glucose, so a sports drink will only add unnecessary calories to your
diet.But go for a sports drink with longer workouts: Its electrolytes help you sweat more efficiently so you retain precious water. ✿
