You’ve probably heard that it’s recommended to drink 8 glasses of water a day.
However, according to the National Academy of Medicine:
👩 Women should drink 2.7 liters a day
👨 Men should drink 3.7 liters a day
Once you start exercising, your fluid intake needs to increase, as you can lose 17 – 50 oz per hour on average. There is no hydration recommendation that works for every person but here’s a baseline:
💧Consume 17 – 20 oz two hours before exercising
💧 Another 8 oz thirty minutes before
💧 During exercise, 7 – 10 oz every ten to twenty min.
💧 8 oz in the 30 min following the workout
