So you should be hydrated BEFORE your workout and stay hydrated DURING your workout, but did you know it’s also important to maintain hydration AFTER you’ve given your heart and soul into your workout?

Being hydrated before your workout will keep you from getting lethargic, dizzy, experiencing muscle cramps during the workout, regulate your bodies temperature and it will keep your body running like a well-oiled machine because that water will act as a lubricant for your muscles. Weigh yourself BEFORE and AFTER you are done kicking your own butt into shape. For each pound lost during your exercise, drink appropriately  2 -3 cups of water.

You just might alleviate muscle soreness, those body aches and pains and give those vital organs that pumped so hard to help get you through that exercise some good ol’ T.L.C.
