    Water .... Empty Water ....

    Most bodybuilders can't speak highly enough of water. Here are just a few facts about water:

    • The body retains water in tissue for the future. If your body is getting water when it needs to, it won't store as much water, because it knows it will continue to be supplied with it, when it needs it. If you don't drink enough, you will likely store more water and look bloated.

    • Water transports nutrients, and waste products.

    • Water helps with the digestive, absorptive, circulatory, and excretory functions.

    • Water helps maintain proper body temperature.

    • Water stops dehydration. Dehydration leads to excess body fat, poor muscle tone, joint and muscle soreness, among other things.

    How much water should you drink?

    An active, athletic person needs approximately 2/3 ounce per pound of body weight.
