Just a small amount of dehydration will adversely affect your strength.

Lower strength = submaximal workout performance

You could literally be losing weeks, if not months, of potential gains by not adequately hydrating yourself. A 2008 study concluded that muscular power decreased by up to 19% at a dehydration level of 3% (that’s 3% of total body weight).

Interestingly, the study participant’s perception of fatigue increased by a massive 70%! Imagine taking that feeling with you into the gym – forget about it!

What most weight-lifters do is get psyched-up in the short term and successfully keep themselves hydrated. However, as the days and weeks progress, the motivation dies and bad habits set back in.

I stated in this article that the most important principle in the weight-lifting game is consistency! Absolutely NOTHING works if it’s only done short-term. You must commit yourself 100% and stay committed. Nothing short of this will do.

Now the important question: How much water do you need to successfully build muscle? The link above will give you the answer but in summary…

Body weight (lbs) X 0.6 = Water Intake in ounces So a 160 lb man needs 96 ounces of water daily. That’s around 12 x 8 ounce cups.

So, drink your water and do it consistently! You’ll see great gym performances as a result!

Stay Hydrated and Stay Motivated!
