While carbohydrate and protein needs during the pre-workout period are highly individualized, just about every bodybuilder would benefit from improving hydration efforts before their workout. Research has shown dehydration to impose several negative factors on training performance and recovery. However, simply consuming 16 fl oz (~500mL) of water within an hour of training can help stave off some of these issues. Focus on hydration throughout the entire day for best effects!
