Sweat Rate Worksheet
Use the tips and complete the worksheet below using the formula to determine sweat rate.
|A||Body Weight Before Exercise (record in pounds)|
|B||Fluid consumed during exercise, (record in ounces*)|
|C||Urine volume excreted during exercise (record in ounces)|
|D||Body weight after exercise|
|E||Exercise time recorded in hours|
* 1 cup = 8 ounces. 1 gulp is estimated at 1 oz.
Complete this formula to determine sweat rate:
- A-D = change in body weight recorded in ounces (1 pound = 16 ounces) = _____________
- Change in body weight + B – C = Sweat Volume = ____________
- Sweat Volume divided by Exercise Time (E) recorded in hours (30 minutes = .50 hrs.) = ___________. This is your sweat rate (box F) and the number of ounces of fluid you should consume during one hour of exercise.
