The Hydration Experiment

Joe Kita is no Joey Chestnut when it comes to stuffing his face. (Chestnut's the guy you see scarfing down Nathan's hot dogs on ESPN, Kita authors Core Performance's blog One Small Change). But Kita did drink his bodyweight in water in just 30 days, and that's no small feat. No, he wasn't squaring off in a competitive hydrating contest; he was on a mission to become the world's most properly hydrated man.

When you consider that over a third of physically active people are walking around under-hydrated—and being under-hydrated by just 2 percent can negatively impact performance in the gym and daily activities—it's easy to see why Kita would set such a goal for himself.

To boost performance, improve flexibility, regulate appetite and increase focus, check out Kita's lessons in hydration in the 7-part series that follows.
