7 of 20

Strenuous Exercise

Temperature increases - When you exercise you generate heat, so your temperature increases.

Water content - During exercise more water is lost in sweat through the skin as you get hotter and more water vapour is lost from your lungs as your breathing rate increases.

Salt levels - sweat contains salt, so if you sweat a lot the level in your body will decrease.
