Winter months creeping in, are you ready?

 

Load up on your vitamin C to help protect you immune system. Remember that the top of your head and the bottom of your feet are where you lose the most ammount of body heat. After you are done sweating from your workout, be sure to change your socks and put on some kind of hat, until you can take a hot shower. If you do get sick, be sure to remember to rehydrate often. If your temperature gets to 99 degrees, you will lose 1 liter of water an hour. That means dehydration quickly if your not careful. Consuming water and electrolyte drinks are the best way to stay hydrated.

It’s also a good idea to carry some kind of antibacterial hand soap with you and use it after you touch door knobs and handles. Always wash after using the restroom. If possible try not to share drinks, and cover your mouth to stop the spread of germs.

Daily water recommendation. Half your body weight in ounces a day. If you are 200lbs then you would drink 100ounces of water a day, that would be less than a gallon of water a day.

1 Gal = 128oz.
