4 x 32oz bottles? I make that to be over 3.5 Litres.
And you are sitting in a bank all day which I presume is air conditioned?
Why would you want to drink that much water? That sounds way over the top to me. I thought the general consensus here at T-Nation was that drinking a whole lot of water was bad for you, as it stripped you body of minerals and electrolytes and stressed you kidneys.
32oz of water would be a lot for me to drink in one day and I walk around the city and train at the gym.
This is the first hit on google:
?As soon as a few ounces of extra water are consumed, a master hormone called anti-diuretic hormone (the name derives from the hormone's capacity to stimulate the kidney to retain water) falls to undetectable levels and allows the kidney to excrete, in a matter of minutes, all of the surplus water ingested.?
?A young woman toting around her bottle of water can only retain a few extra ounces in her body no matter how quickly she drinks it. Moreover, the amount she can retain is truly only a drop in the bucket. The svelte 5'9" woman who weighs, say 125 lbs., has about 75 lbs. of water (about 35 quarts) in her body. The extra water retained in a few sips hardly increases the body's content of water and even then, the excess is rapidly eliminated in the urine. Therefore there is no possibility that consumed water can make a sustained difference in anything but how often she needs to find a ladies room.?
