- It allows the muscles to work more efficiently--I notice a drastic change in my performance when I am well hydrated as opposed to not.
- Not being properly hydrated can lead to injuries--One of the reasons (along with many others) why I got injured last year. I was not diligent about my fluid intake and am trying to do a lot better.
- Your body won't recover as quickly or as productively--Again, I notice this in my own body. When I am lazy about carrying water with me I get more muscle spasms and soreness. I still get soreness when I drink water but I seem to recover at a faster pace.

|There is also a strap around the waist for added support and a clip for the tube for easy access.|

Exercise and be hydrated and you won't regret it!
