Tip 2: Stay Hydrated For Maximum Muscle Contractions

In order to stay hydrated you need to take your weight in kg x0.033 = L per day and with every hour of exercise add 1L 

If you struggle to drink the required amounts of water, try adding elastic bands around the water bottle your drinking from, so if you need 3-4L per day and are drinking out of a 750ml , you'll need 4-6 rubber bands, every time you drink 750ml take 1 band off of the bottle. This will help to motivate you to drink more, especially if your bottle is in plain view during your working day. 

So not only will drinking more water help you increase the force of muscular contractions, (Cells that don't maintain their balance of fluids and electrolytes shrivel, which can result in muscle fatigue). When muscle cells don't have adequate fluids, they don't work as well and performance can suffer.

 Drinking enough water helps to maintain the balance of body fluids; this includes digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients and maintenance of body temperature. 

Most importantly drinking water helps your Kidneys function; body fluids transport waste products in and out of cells. The main toxin in the body is blood urea nitrogen, a water-soluble waste that is able to pass through the kidneys to be excreted in the urine. Your kidneys do an amazing job of cleansing and ridding your body of toxins as long as your intake of fluids is adequate.

When you're getting enough fluids, urine flows freely, is light in color and free of odor. When your body is not getting enough fluids, urine concentration, color, and odor increases because the kidneys trap extra fluid for bodily functions.

If you chronically drink too little, you may be at higher risk for kidney stones, especially in warmer climates.
