Bring a half to a litre of water to the gym
Drink water is the first of Theodorou’s MMA gym tips. And sure, you can sip from the water fountain, but how will you know if you’re drinking enough. But if you bring a water bottle, you can make it your goal to sip about one litre during your workout. And it will help you avoid dehydration and muscle cramping. “I drink four to five litres of water a day,” says Theodorou. “Keep in mind I am 215 pounds and train twice a day. Everyone is different, so setting your own schedule and routine will help you keep up with your thirst.”
