We all know that drinking water is good thing for our health.  When I am not hydrated I have a visions of the fluids in my body looking more like a thick oil and muscles that look like beef jerky.  Neither one of these sound great for our health or fitness.  But then the question is raised. How much should we drink?  A good rule of thumb is half your body weight in ounces.  So for a man that ways 180 pounds they should be consuming 90 ounces of water a day.  This can seem over whelming to most people.  We recommend that you start by drinking a glass more a day then you currently drink.  Then over time you can add another glass, and another glass, until you finally hit your desired consumption.  Above is a quick tip on how to start get the ball rolling on your day to day water consumption.
