The importance of hydration

It is important to make sure you are hydrated before you even exercise.  Clear is cool – your wee that is!

It may seem like a lot, but below is a guide for how much water you should be aiming for, even before you hit the gym:

  • You should consume 30mls of water per kg of body weight each day
  • in addition to this you need 250mls of water for every 15 mins of high intensity exercise that you do
  • and also an extra 250mls for any caffeine you have (such as coffee, chocolate or cola)

So drink up the h20!
