This should come without saying but not everyone drinks enough water. It seems like a no-brainer, right? You sweat hard in the gym and you need water to replenish what you sweat out. Your body is full of water - up to around 50-60% so it’s important to maintain this to perform at an optimal level. It’s also important to note that water isn’t just lost through sweating but also through breathing, bowel movements and urine.
So you can see the importance of consuming water throughout the day as your body works to maintain a healthy water level, but if you need a bit of flavour in your life, add intra-workout or BCAAs to your water.
