I don't mind drinking during exercise but to each their own. I was shocked to see SODIUM mentioned as the average person has too much sodium in them.

If I drank that much water while working out I would be throwing up. Just some drinking between sets and I have water with me all day long so I'm always drinking.

I used to never sweat even when pushing a lawn mower in 90 degrees but when I got with a trainer and got on a set diet I started to sweat like crazy. Now I just need to get back on track with the working out.

I drink a lot of water, but since I never sweat there is no need to do the before and after exercise. Some people just don't sweat, not even in a sauna, but it is more dangerous not to sweat because you never get cooled down.

I have no idea where the bottle came from, but I found a really cool water bottle in the house and I've used it for about 2 weeks, I even drink from it at home instead of a class..and it holds more. I can't tell you how much bottles I've been through and the one I really like I found at random.

I receive emails from the company I bought my water filtration pitcher (I absolutely love it! Its from drinksoma) and recently they sent me an awesome interactive tool to figure out about how many cups of water I personally need each day. I thought this tool would be good to share with everyone since I grew up being told 8 cups of water is what I need to stay hydrated and healthy, but this tool Soma gave me proved that old saying wrong!
Here is the link in order to find out how much water you personally need based on your weight and how long you work out a day,
Check it out! Its awesome

Thanks for sharing...I've also read that we are supposed to drink half our body weight in ounces. I drink one bottle of water on my way to work every morning and I keep 3 bottles of water on my desk, this helps me to remember throughout the day to drink water. I also keep a case of water at work so it's always handy instead of trying to purchase or reach for other beverages.

Loved the article and it applies to people like me with relatively moderate workouts. However, there is some interesting research about rigorous work outs and recovery meals. Apparently eating high carbs immediately following an intense workout (over and hour) significantly reduces to recovery time of you body. For example, a college level athlete might be given a whole pizza following a football game and a second high carb meal 60 to 90 minutes later. Just interesting fodder......

Great advise. I need to remember to drink more water!
