Hydration

Your body is 70% water, and with almost every chemical reaction that occurs in the body requiring H20, it’s a necessity to make hydration a priority. From person to person, all things nutrition look very different, even with water. One way to estimate your body’s needs is to weigh yourself before and after a workout and calculate how much weight you lost during that exercise. That weight loss in that period of time is loss of water, and to replenish that, you should drink about 20-24 ounces per pound lost. It is also recommended that per 15 minutes of exercise, you should drink 4- 6 ounces during the workout. Staying hydrated prior to your workout will lessen the amount you need to drink during, as well as take strain off of your heart by improving blood circulation.
