  • I'm not real sure this articles applies to me so much. I'm not much of a sweater. Even in my most vigourous workouts sweat really runs down my face. I bead up real lightly on my forehead and arms and sweat mostly on my back and of course my chest. I do drink plenty before, during, and after workouts, but not as much as this article suggests. I've always wondered if there are more people out there like me that sweat very little. - 9/29/2009 10:26:08 AM
  • wow ! I learn something new every day on this site! Just the water you need to exercise and make it count, is the daily recommended amount awesome! - 9/17/2009 12:31:10 PM
  • There is no way I could drink that much I would feel too full and be sick to my stomach as well as in the bathroom more than on my treadmill! - 9/17/2009 9:19:19 AM
  • It really floors me the people who go out in the hot Arizona sun WITHOUT any water. I have carried my liter bottle with me EVERYWHERE for YEARS. I cannot stand to be without my water. When I go on my hikes, I take a 2 liter water bladder in my backpack. I go through all of it!, =to 8 glasses. When I go to the gym, I ALWAYS have my water with me. Now with Water Aerobics classes, have it there too. The instructor really encourages this. You would think you wouldn't need it in the pool, but you do!

    GREAT article! - 9/4/2009 3:33:25 AM
  • I start my workout at 7 am. There is not enough time for me to drink that much water unless I would get up really early:( Plus, if I drank that much water before, I wouldn't have time to workout...I'd be in the bathroom!! - 8/25/2009 5:44:02 AM
  • I learned along time ago that I can't drink 8 8oz glasses of water in a day. I can however drink 4. Quarts that is. I got a 32oz cup and drink from that. I have one on my table. I even have one to take in my car. I've been told that I drink more water than most people. When it's hot (above 75degrees) I drink 5 quarts of water a day. The best thing I ever did was start drinking water. - 8/23/2009 10:12:26 AM
  • i drink a 8oz this morning before i started on my lap i had to run to the bath room every 10 lap no more . - 8/16/2009 3:04:56 AM
  • I work out in an indoor, heated pool for 1 hour a day. I sweat a lot, but no drinks are allowed in the pool area. I can't break my momentum to get out every 15 minutes, dry off and go out to the cooler in the hallway. - 8/5/2009 1:36:37 PM
  • My habit is to drink 2 glasses before, at least 4 during my 45 min work out and then another 2-4 following. I need the water to cool me down after a work out as well as to replenish my body. I also usually drink room temperature water during and cool water after. - 8/5/2009 12:12:18 PM
  • I always drink a few cups of water before I exercise and then a cup or 2 while exercising. I don't feel full or sick. All that moving makes me thirsty. - 8/5/2009 10:55:22 AM

    When I drink anything while I am working out I feel full & sick. I am not as productive as I am when I don't drink. I drink water all day & I be sure to drink before I go in the gym but I just can't drink while excercising. Am I not getting out of the work out as I should? - 7/24/2009 12:10:46 PM

    When I drink that much water when working out, it jiggles the whole time. I'd rather drink when I feel thirsty, and go from there. - 7/21/2009 11:31:53 AM
  • I get so sick of all this water hype! Yes you need water! Yes it is an important tool for weight loss. But this ridiculously high amount or in short periods...We also get water from the food you eat but no one tells you that, I get so sick of hearing about it! But the water company's and the bottle companys sure got everybody hooked! They love it! Next thing 'ya know they will be pushing for 100 oz! - 7/19/2009 6:54:54 AM
  • I would never finish my workout if I drank a cup of water every 15 min. I would be in the bathroom. - 7/17/2009 2:26:22 PM
