Bodybuilding and Water Intake
Water and Bodybuilding
Most bodybuilders can't speak highly enough of water.
The body retains water in tissue for the future. If it's getting water when it needs to, it won't store as much water, because it knows it will continue to be supplied with water. If you don't drink enough, you will likely store more water and look bloated.
Water transports nutrients, and waste products.
Water helps with the digestive, absorptive, circulatory, and excretory functions.
Water helps maintain proper body temperature.
When you are working out, drink some water. This will ensure you don't become dehydrated.
You may have heard that you should drink 8 glasses of water a day. This recommendation is for the 'normal person'. If you are doing weights, you need to drink more than this. An active, athletic person needs to drink approximately 2/3 ounce per pound of body weight.
