Hydration for Resistance Training

can anyone provide appropriate guidelines for hydration (specifically H2O) before and during workouts.

Also, regarding the intake of protein shake, can one be ingested both before and after the workout? thanks,

As much as you can stomach and train woth intensity on both

very individual


Hyrdation should last all day long, every day. Some people say an ounce per pound of bodyweight, others say 8x8 oz. Don’t depend on hydrating just during lifting.
