Every coach, nutritionist, player always bangs on about water.
To be honest it’s boring.
People have tried everything to mix it up a bit. I know a lot of people Infuse (adding pieces of fruit) but I just don’t enjoy that either.
Likewise I just can’t stomach cold water.
The only way I can get my 1-2 litres in a day is too drink it room temperature.
Hitting my water intake isn’t a problem when training.
It’s the other hours of the day I struggle with. So I make it a habit to force myself to always carry a litre around with me either leaving a bottle in the car, or making sure it’s with me at work.
Other than trying to make it a habit, the only other area to improve is to make sure your hitting the below targets.
The Main targets your should aim for with water is:
- 1-2 Litres a day.
- 400-600 mls – replacing back into the body, per 1 hour of exercise.
