Feeling ill,weak: Football coaches from the lombardi school of training have learned to not push athletes into dehydration to "toughen them up" the dangers of heat exhaustion and heat stroke outweigh any training benefit. Nausea, vomiting, hot red dry skin, lack of perspiration, confusion, cramps, fever, tachycardia, all bad signs.
