APFT Prep Challenge: Week #7 Bonus!

From BCT, we all learned that drinking water is incredibly important.  Did you know that dehydration of just 2% of body weight can harm exercise performance? (Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, 2018)  While the amount of fluids required varies greatly among individuals, and consuming too much water is possible, a minimum of 64 ounces of water per day is a reasonable goal for most people.  This week’s challenge is to consume at least 64 ounces of water every day (Monday-Saturday).  Try using a refillable container to measure your water!  This week’s bonus is for plain water, not sports drinks, juice, coffee, etc.
