Hydration
Your bodyweight in pounds divided by 2
= the minimum number of ounces of fluids
you need per day. (This does not include the
amount of exercise you do or the climate
you are in.*) Example: 180 pounds/2=90
ounces of water per day
Half Gallon = 64 Ounces | 1 Gallon = 128
Ounces | 1 Canteen = 32 ounces
WITH EXERCISE ADD:
* 16 Ounces - 2 hours prior to exercise
* 4-8 Ounces - 10 minutes prior to
exercise
