    So true

    I've always been one for drinking at least 2l a day. As soon as I don't I feel grodgy.
    It should be top priority man. Especially if creatine is in the diet

    If you don't have much water in your body then you will require more water to keep the sodium/water balance. So to drink more water your body doesn't need to retain it so much.

    hey, nice thread bro, ive always been the type that would drink a can of pepsi instead of water even when im really thirsty,
    what really got me was that it can wake you up on time, and keep you FRESH (which i need)!

    but if i may ask, how much should i drink? what amount do you recommend daily?
    is 3 liters good enough ?

    not sure if this affects anything but, im 17, 5'6
    weigh 134, trying to bulk while staying lean, and workout 5 days a week
    saturdays and sundays are beach days for me

    thanks!

    Think of two chambers separated by a membrane. Assume that one chamber has a salt solution of high concentration and the other has solution of smaller concentration. The level in both chambers are the same. Also assume that the membrane allows only water molecules to pass through it but not the salt molecules. Such membranes are called semi-permeable.

    I understand that being fully hydrated makes you stronger. Perhaps by 19%
    However, being dehydrated still makes you 3% stronger?
    Or 3% weaker? (No, i stay hydrated all the time)

    Proper hydration is such an important part of bodybuilding that is neglected. I drink 3 gallons a day in contest season and 2 gallons in the off season

    no ones body retains additional water other than what it needs to survive (unlike sodium in the body), otherwise dehydration wouldnt happen as easily to everyone. and because the body retains more sodium than water..thats a partial reason for dehydration. half the people in this world are dehydrated and dont even know it!

    Cool Hydrate or die

    The importance of water to unseen by many of us teenagers.
    Water is key in recovery as well.
    After a vigorous workout it is key to
    1.drink a fast digesting protein with a simple carbohydrate
    (50grams of whey, 1 banana blended) into a shake.
    2.drink water before , during and after working out.
    3. REST REST REST!
    4. Stretching is crucial before and after.
    5. Before bed drink casein protein to avoid muscle degeneration.
    Following these rules will not only improve your recovery but also give what your muscle desires after working vigorously, and feel the benefits. Trust me.

    The importance of staying hydrated is something I take really seriously and if you're struggling here's something that might help: Keeping old bottles of squash and filling them up (from the tap is fine, where I live), and stick em in the fridge. This way you can just grab 1L as soon as you finish the last one, and chilled water feels like kind of a treat. This has helped me drink 4L plus per day.

    Also, I read recently that drinking water from plastic bottles can transfer chemicals from the plastic that can be harmful. I got myself a stainless steel workout bottle (with a wide enough neck to add ice) which could help.

    Great reminder, OP. If I could be as stringent on every other part of my regime as I am about drinking enough water I'd be in amazing shape!

    People need to remember that you get water from everything you eat too, so if the recommended water intake is 3 litres, that's doesn't mean you need to drink exactly 3 litres from a bottle
