An Athlete's Diary
How much water should you drink and when should you drink it?
A good rule of thumb is that you should drink half your body weight in ounces of water every day. If you weigh 200 pounds, you should drink 100 ounces of water every day.
When to hydrate is another question that doesn't get asked often enough I don’t think. It’s good to drink a glass of water immediately upon waking in the morning. Also, combine drinking water with daily tasks to ensure you are getting enough water every day.
When you workout, you should drink 20 ounces before exercise, 20 ounces of water during a one hour exercise session and another 20 ounces within an hour after exercise.
Your body is made up of mostly water. To ensure you are performing optimally, make sure you drink enough water every day.
