EAST WENATCHEE — With winter rapidly approaching, we asked Dr. Michael Rossi, an orthopedic surgeon at Wenatchee Valley Medical Center with a subspecialty in sports medicine, to share his professional opinion on the following:Q: How should I hydrate before, during and after a long workout (outside or inside)? A: The answer is all of the above ... we should try to keep well ahead of any dehydration since it becomes nearly impossible to catch up once we’ve gotten behind. Our bodies do well with an isotonic sports drink that you can buy over the counter that can replenish both fluid and minerals. One gauge of keeping on track is the ability to continue to produce urine output that is not too dark or concentrated.
