Hydration Fun Facts

All of the major systems in your body depend on water. Water helps to regulate body temperature, lubricate joints and tissues, and carry nutrients and oxygen to cells,

Adequate fluid intake is super important to your gym performance.

So how much water should you drink? Shoot for one-half your body weight in ounces per day, plus 8-10 ounces for every half-hour of activity. So if you weigh 180 lbs you should be drinking 90 ounces per day + 16-20 ounces for every hour you work out (106 to 110 ounces).

Don’t let hydration have a negative impact on your workout!
