How Much Water Should We Drink?
Saturday, August 20, 2016

Water is so vital to health & fitness; in fact you can only live two days without it.
So many people today live dehydrated. If you’re dehydrated your concentration will drop, you will feel tired and your performance will be severely impacted. A 2% drop in hydration can equal a 10% drop in performance!
As much as 60% of your body is made up of water and when you go for a run / workout, you can lose quite a bit….especially on a hot day. So how much should we be drinking?
Here’s a simple calculation to work out how much water your body needs:
Your weight in KG x 0.033= litres per day.
This equation includes all liquid for the day (water, tea, coffee, etc) under normal weather conditions (you need to drink more in hot weather)
So for a 70KG man or woman that’s 70×0.033= 2.31L per day…. On top of this you will need about another litre for every hours workout you do.
Lastly, too much water – especially when drunk quickly can potentially be dangerous and can cause death! So be sensible. You should feel nicely hydrated not like you are water boarding yourself.
I hope this has been helpful and you all enjoy the great feeling of being hydrated :)
