Are exercise and constipation related?

Dear Expert:

I have been back to a regular exercise routine for a couple of weeks now, and have become constipated. It now occurs to me that I have been constipated previously when undergoing a rigid exercise routine. Is there some correlation?


Constipation can occur if you do not drink enough water during the day. Make sure you drink adequate amounts of water before, during and after you exercise. Throughout a typical day you should have at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water. And when exercising you should rehydrate yourself so you never feel thirsty. Feeling thirsty is a good indication that you are dehydrated.
