(Another great sports tip from guest blogger Jon Doyle of www.baseballtrainingsecrets.com)

 

 

 

I am going to make this post very short...Please do not make the mistake of thinking this fact lowers the importance of this message...I know you have heard this many, many times before...But have you really followed this crucial advice?

 

 

 

Drink Water...And Lots Of It!

 

 

 

With the baseball season here hydration will play a crucial role in your performance...whether or not you realize it...

 

 

 

Proper Hydration improves...

 

 

 

-Energy Levels

-Focus

-Reaction Times (i.e. speed)

-Recovery

-Strength

-Stamina

-Etc, I can literally go on all day...

 

 

 

Basically, proper hydration improves every bodily function there is. Bar none.

 

 

 

Ok, Jon...So How Much Should I Drink?

 

 

 

To Keep things simple multiply your body weight by one...I think everyone can do that

 

 

 

Now simply drink your bodyweight in ounces each and every day. Not soda. Not Diet Soda. Not tea. Not Gatorade. WATER!

 

 

 

That's it. Simple.

 

 

 

If you are thirsty you are already at least 2% dehydrated.

 

 

 

Yes, you will go to the bathroom more. That is a good thing! Your body will adapt...now go drink water...oh yeah, don't gulp it.
