If you don't do this you're just holding yourself back!

It may come as a surprise to a few but drinking water is essential for maintaining good health and well-being. It helps to keep our bodies hydrated, aids in digestion, and helps to regulate body temperature. Here are a few key points about the importance of drinking water and some guidelines for how much to drink:


1 • Water makes up a large part of our bodies and is necessary for many of our body's functions. For example, it helps to transport nutrients and oxygen to cells, removes waste and toxins from the body, and helps to regulate body temperature.


2 • Dehydration can have serious consequences. Even mild dehydration can cause fatigue, headache, and impaired physical and mental performance. Severe dehydration can be life-threatening.


3 • There is no one-size-fits-all answer to how much water you should drink. Factors that can affect your water needs include your age, sex, weight, and level of physical activity. In general, it is recommended that adults drink at least 8 cups (64 ounces) of water per day. Personally due to 1-2 training sessions per day I find i'm usually consuming around 3-4 liters per day.


4 • You can get water from a variety of sources. In addition to plain water, you can also get water from foods and drinks like fruits, vegetables, broth-based soups, and even coffee and tea (although it's a good idea to limit your intake of caffeinated beverages as they can have a diuretic effect).


5 • It's important to pay attention to your body's thirst signals. If you feel thirsty, it's a good idea to have a drink of water. You can also check the color of your urine as a general indicator of hydration status. Pale yellow or clear urine typically indicates that you are well-hydrated, while dark yellow or amber-colored urine may be a sign of dehydration.

I hope this information helps to highlight the importance of drinking water and provides some guidance on how much to drink. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask!
