Water is an essential, vital need for human beings. That’s why our pro shop always has a ready supply of cold water. Your ability to perform can decline with a very small amount of dehydration which is why it is important to drink water not only throughout the day but also during exercise in order to improve efficiency and feel good while working out. However be sure to not drink excessive amounts of water while exercising as aggressive drinking is risky because it can lead to serious conditions.
According to registered dietitian Renee Melton, she recommends the following amounts of water to drink before, during, and after a workout.
Amino Force $5.00 (Before, during, after workout drink)
- One to two hours before your workout, drink 15 to 20 ounces of water
- 15 minutes before you begin, drink between 8 and 10 ounces of water
- During your workout, drink another 8 ounces every 15 minutes.
