Half body weight oz: Hydration comes from drinking water as well as getting the water into your organs and muscles by moving. To hydrate well drink half your body weight in ounces (ex 120lb is 60oz of water) as well as exercising which helps move the water into the cellular spaces. Drink less caffienated drinks which can be dehydrating.
