Wet Your Whistle

Oh yeah! The virtues of H2O. It’s time to praise them again.

Your total body weight is made up of approximately 50% water, with as much as 75% contributing to your muscle mass, so there’s no denying the importance it plays for an athlete.  It’s vital not only to the average human being, but especially a fighter who is constantly drawing on those reserves in order to perform at peak.

The Sweet Science

Recently, while I was assisting with the promotion of a local boxing card, a fellow fighter approached me.  He was sipping an energy drink from a well known brand and asked, “I heard that you know something about health and stuff? I need to make weight for a match this weekend. What can I do to drop it fast?” Gesturing to the can of liquid sugar he held in his hand, I jokingly said, “Stop drinking that.”  We went on to discuss why it was probably a major contributor to slowing his weight loss and the affect it could be having on his overall performance.
