How Much Does Hydration Really Affect Muscle Strength?

Whether you are strength training, looking to lose weight, or going for athletic performance your hydration levels will dictate how well you do. Your muscles are comprised of 70-75% water. Just a 3% dehydration of a muscle can lead to a 10% decrease in muscle strength and performance. Imagine if your water levels in your muscle were only 60-65%? Your performance could drop by 30-40%! So next time you’re about to workout ask yourself did you have enough water? Check back next time for the recommended amount!
