SILVA, Cláudia Villela da e FAYH, Ana Paula Trussardi. Weight loss and beverage consumption during training sessions of classical ballet. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte (Impr.) [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.2, pp.495-506. ISSN 0101-3289. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32892011000200015.
The purpose of this study was to analyze the weight loss(WL) and consumption fluids during training sessions in classical ballet. The sample was composed of 21 ballet dancers, who were evaluated in three sessions of ballet: session without a supply of liquid, a session with water supply and other with provision of sports drink. At the session in which the dancers received water, the median consumption was 376,19 mL and the median was WL-190g. In the session with sports drink, the median consumption was 226,19 mL and the median was WL-150g. Observed difference in fluid intake, but not in WL, during the sessions with fluid intake (p = 0,01 and p = 0,79, respectively). The dancers, voluntarily, drank more water than the sports drink during training of classical ballet.
