A valid questionnaire was used to study the data on the volume and water consumption schedule and other liquids. The amount of water and other drinks consumed was studied by reproducing drinking during 24 hours. The questionnaire put questions about the amount of water and beverages consumed prior to training, during and after it, and furthermore certain types of beverages were determined. Our research showed that 63.34% of the Kazakhstan athletes under examination drink the recommended norm (2-3 liters per day), another 6.69% of the investigated consume from 3 to 6 liters of liquid.

Only 20% of volleyball players, judoists and triathletes of national teams consume the recommended norm of liquid (400-600 ml). Most of the investigated athletes consume necessary amount of water and other beverages during training. 70.0% of respondents drink water and juices during training, and only 16.7% of them drink sport drinks.
