Hit the bottle! The water bottle that is! Your body is about 50-60% water by weight and your muscles are about 75% water. Each body cell, tissue, and organ needs water to function. Therefore it makes sense that without water you aren’t going to function very well, much less at 100% of your capability. Dehydration is the single greatest factor that affects athletic performance. As little as a 2% loss in body water (typically 1-2 pounds) can affect performance 10-15%. That means if you come to training dehydrated or become dehydrated during training, there is no way you can give 100% effort!
