Gym Strategies 6

Drink water

Losing just 2% of your body weight in fluids—some gym-goers sweat out 6 to 10%—can make your workout feel harder, reduce your exercise performance and reduce your body’s ability to recover after you leave the gym, according to a review from the Macquarie University . Unfortunately, we find that many people are dehydrated when they show up to the gym, We recommend everyone drink 15ml to 30ml of water per kilo of bodyweight per day. To make sure you’re drinking enough water during your workout to replace any fluids you lose, weigh yourself both before and after a sweat session,. You shouldn’t be losing more than 2% of your bodyweight.
