Water is one not only an important factor for overall health, but one of the key components to a good workout. "Just losing 2% of your body weight in fluid can decrease performance by up to 25%," says Amanda Carlson, director of performance nutrition for Athletes’ Performance. Here is the breakdown on staying hydrated for exercise:



  • 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.
