How Much Water Should You Drink?

It’s half of your body-weight in ounces per day.

It’s really very simple, but, there’s a good chance you’re not doing that.

Let’s take a look:

Weight# of 12 OZ Glasses per day
150 LBS6
175 LBS7
200 LBS8
225 LBS9

I rounded down to take it easy on you.

When it’s hotter (like now, in the summer) this becomes even more important. I find that if I’m not properly hydrated, I feel more sluggish, especially when training.

Now, coffee, tea, and flavored water don’t count. Those things all must be digested, just like food.

Water doesn’t. Water passes through your intestinal tract and serves a completely different function: it keeps you in balance.
