You Don’t Need Extra Water for Bodybuilding – T NATION

Soggy-Bottom Bodybuilding

The prevailing notion among bodybuilders, athletes, and regular health-conscious people is that the more water they drink, the healthier they’ll be. The extra water will presumably give them more energy, clear their head, brighten their skin, and even coax extra growth out of their muscles.

To achieve this end, they’ll drink more than 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, often carrying around jugs of water as if they were camel-less Bedouins traveling footless to a distant 7-Eleven.

Bodybuilders, however, are especially soggy, believing that additional water will confer all kinds of benefits, but frankly, their beliefs don’t amount to a bucket of warm spit.
