Yes but sip it during the gym...you should already be well hydrated before the gym and drink as much as you want after :-)

I like drinking water the day before so I'll be hydrated Gatorade or water for me but natural pure water is always better

1.5 gallons of water throughout your day should be your target. And I've read orange juice while training also has good carb benefits for sustaining energy

That's ridiculous ! Where did come up with thAt number? That's like 180 oz of water ? Good luck tryin to choke that down. Trust your body. If you are thirsty drink water. Forcing it down is not a great idea unless under special circumstance perhaps.

the recommended intake is based on calorie intake if someone consumes about 3800 calories a day, they should drink about 3800 milliliter of water a day which is 3.8 liters a day,so approximately a gallon a day This is just a basic rule of thumb to ensure you're not drinking too much. Other factors are lifestyles, physical activities levels, etc. We all workout here, and summer is here. So it is recommended for someone weight training to drink 10 oz. Every 10 mins. So to say 1.5 gallon is very realistic. I know I at lease drink a gallon a...

Maybe I miscalculated but isn't a gallon 128 oz? So that's 16 glasses of water ?

I also just think that setting all these targets to reach is a set up to mental fatigue and feeling like you fail if you don't hit all these targets. So much easier to trust your body. I do think it's good to know the recommendations but sustaining all these targets is unlikely

If i miscalculated below my bad. But generally the rdi is about a gallon a day for the average male. Now take into account training,  metabolism,  humidity.  You'll find yourself drinking more than a gallon a day. I do find myself drinking that much easily, and no I do not set a target everyday. On average I have to fill my pitcher of water 3 times daily (60 oz), and that is just at my house. I drink all day on the road, at work, at the gym.... and this is most likely due to the fact I live in southern California,  train and have a physical job. This is my perspective on water intake. I do however agree with you, listen to your body. My body tells me I'm thirsty as f*** Sorry for the essay
