Keeping your body well hydrated affects not only your exercise performance, but also how you feel about it. Studies show that getting enough water and other fluids has concrete benefits:
- YOU EXERCISE BETTER WHEN HYDRATED. Hydration leads to a more efficient workout with better strength and endurance.
- YOU EXERCISE WITH MORE SATISFACTION. Hydration levels seem to affect people's perceptions of their workouts. People who are even slightly dehydrated describe their workouts as more difficult.
- YOU BURN MORE FAT. When your body is well hydrated, the body's processes involved in fat burning are maximized.
