In brief: Hydrate

Water. You should drink at least a 8 oz glass of water before exercise.
You should also be drinking water during exercise especially during endurance events. Lastly, you should rehydrate after exercise. In addition, after high intensity or long endurance events, you should also replace electrolytes and salts.
