Water is one of the most important staples toour health and fitness. If we are dehydrated, it can present a whole host of physical problems that will cost time and money to “cure,”when the remedy is as simple as “DRINK MORE WATER!”
Symptoms of Dehydration
An interesting fact, “The earth is covered with almost 70% water,andhumans are composed of about 75% water- our blood containing roughly the same salinity as the ocean water”. There are roughly 10,000 actions within your body that are performed per second, which water is essential to. Water’s chief job is to maintain a stable environment inside and around our cells,so we can be able to take in nutrition and eliminate wastes. It is also essential that your muscles, tendons, ligaments and all the fascia in our body stay hydrated. You see, our body is meant to slide and move internally, and all this sliding and moving is done on water basedsubstance. So if you are dehydrated, just moving around will cause excessive tension and friction, which will cause inflammation, dysfunction, andpain.
So where do you start? First,find out how much you are currently drinking. Use a journal or the note function on your smartphone. If your total water intake is below ½ your body weight in ounces of water, you have to start increasing your intake. So, for example if you weigh 150lbs, you should be drinking 75 ounces of water every day. Also,note how much plain water you are having. Plain is water without ANYTHINGin it and two hours after eating.
Don’t try and increase it all at once though! Start slowly and let your body adapt. First,take the water you are currently drinking and divide it into thirds. Then also divide your day into thirds, say before 11am, 3pm, and7pm. Each third of waterwill go into those three sections. Now you are going to add a little bit of water in each third and make sure that it is all finished by the time you choose. Just keep increasing periodically every couple of weeks, andyou will be good to go in no time.
If you do enjoy lemon or lime in your water, just make sure half the water you drink is plain. This is the water that keeps your tissues hydrated.
As an added way to get more water in and start your day off awesomely, drink as much as you can first thing in the morning. Now you have started your day off hydrating yourself which get your body flowing and functioning correctly. It also gets you in the habit of drinking water in the day. And if you happen to forget to drink enough during your busy day, the water you drank in the morning “front loaded” your amount to help.
So now that you are all geared up to stay hydrated- What do you do? Go to the nearest water fountain and take a swig…Not if you love your body! Almost all municipal sources of water are contaminated with commercial agricultural runoff (pesticides, herbicides, etc.) and have chlorine and fluoride added to it. The hierarchy of the best water sources are:
The point I’m trying to get across to you is-DRINK MORE WATER! For those of you who are already thinking that this will send you to the bathroom every two seconds, consider this: As you slowly increase your water intake, your body will become more efficient at processing/using the water, and your desire to go will decrease. You can also add a small pinch of Celtic sea salt (not every time) which will help your body assimilate the water and give you a bunch of fantastic trace minerals (electrolytes) that your body needs anyway.
On a closing note- Many people mistake the feeling of thirst for hunger, and studies show that adults who drink two, 8-ounce glasses of water before breakfast, lunch, and dinner consumed75-90 fewer calories during each meal.

Hey, my name is Arthur and I have been in SolCore for a little more than three years now. Let me tell you, it’s been a lifesaver. Before I came here, I had chronic back pain due to not an injury, but just years of having the wrong posture and doing terrible things with my back, and not really even knowing it.
I went to physical therapy and I went to chiropractors. It helped, but it was more temporary. And coming here to this class, three times a week in the group class, it’s just been amazing.
All the different techniques and whether they are new or new to us, they have been so very helpful.
In the past three years, I’ve had two minor flare-ups, and it was all my own fault. I was sitting improperly again going back to my old ways, and coming back here at class, it’s just has been amazing.
I highly recommend SolCore. It has just changed my life dramatically. I know that’s so cliché, but it’s true.

Good Morning, So I thought I’d reach out to you because once a quarter, I’ll reach out to everybody who’s expressed interest in asking if they have any questions, and I got a question about how I goal set, how I choose my goals? And it goes right along with what we do here SolCore Fitness.
So we have four pillars we work with. We work with diet and water, sleep and rest, proper movement, and of course, your goal setting – your joy, your happiness, what you want in your life. And so you can take that goal setting and enjoying life and apply it to the multiple aspects in your life. So what do you want in your career, what do you want you know your family life to look like? What do you want your health of fitness to be like? And I would argue that strongly that your health and fitness in your… how you treat yourself affects those other aspects of your life and that’s the philosophy we work with here, it’s that we want you to be the best position, so you can really flourish in your life, in your job and your family, because if you’re sick and pissed off the whole time, you know you’re no good to anybody and even more than that, if you have full access to yourself, then you bring all of yourself to every situation, so how do I set it. I start with the big goal. What’s true to me, what I really want to do, how do I want to feel, how I want to move, look? I’ll be honest, I used to break it down to more analytical things – weigh this much, you know make this much money, have as many members, achieve this level education.
I found that very restricting, so I’ve stopped doing that. It was too anal retentive, which is saying something for me. So, I started to stick with just a big picture and then as something came up at me that aligned with what I wanted, I made that a goal. So, you know as my inner self talked to me, I said, okay, that’s my goal. So, I encourage you to really sit down and start to think about this, and don’t expect it to be perfect the first time. It’s an evolution if you just start, so you keep putting it out there, you keep thinking about it, you keep fermenting in your being and it comes out more and more pure and then you can start to really connect with it in yourself, like what feels right, you know that’s where you know. At the start what felt right might be very ego driven, right? So, if it’s ego driven, it’s going to cause you pain because eventually it’s going to get taken away.
So, sit down, take a minute to write this stuff down. I wish I could give you more detail, but this is up to you. This is your job, so we can help you the rest, but if you don’t have a goal, you won’t want to go through the struggle. I read a good book – the simple art of not giving F-U fill in the blank, and as said, is your goal big enough to in essence allow you to go through the struggle, what are you willing to struggle for? Because it’s not all roses and sunshines and ice cream, right? It’s difficult and tough, but you have to decide, do I want short term results just to feel good, or do I want to change and be something different? Either answer is totally correct. If you don’t want to go through struggle, if you are fine with where you are, don’t go through it, it’s pointless, but if you want to become something more, it’s not easy.
So having that goal is going to help you drive through the hard times. Reach out to me – email, phone – 505-577-2171, or you can just comment in the post section on YouTube or Facebook, but good luck to you. Thanks.
