    Water bad to drink while working out?

    hey guys

    i just read something that said water is bad to drink while lifting, and that it is a "weight gaining substance". is this true? cuz if so, i've been doing something very bad. i tend to have a sip at the fountain as often as everytime i'm resting between sets! should i drink less, or not drink at all while i'm working out? or is this ridiculous?

    thanks

    I would say no about the water, as a mater of fact, that is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard…. You must not be dehydrated while you lift..

    A protein shake or meal replacement, Im not to sure, as your body digests the food it will take blood away from the working muscles during your workout.

    You probably got it from this list which is mostl bullsh!t....



    __________________________________________________ __________

    ten commandments of the bodybuilding diet.

    1. Never mix protein fat, and carbohydrates at the same meal. They do not digest in the same medium.

    2. Cut out all food and diet drinks containing salt or sodium nitrates. Sodium retains excess water in the tissues and subcutaneous fat.

    3. Stay away from or eliminate refined sugar.

    4. Do not drink water during workouts or with meals Water is a weight gaining substance

    5. Fats are desirable and combined with protein help emulsify bodyfat and provide energy

    6. Half and half cream contains almost no carbohydrates and provides much desired bodybuilding nutrition. Throw away skim milk and homogenized milk.

    7. Eggs are the best source of inexpensive protein. Use the best - fertile eggs.

    8. Carbohydrates mixed with protein turn to fat. Carbohydrates only turn to fat. Start counting grams of carbohydrates. Forget counting calories.

    9. Stress or hyperactivity will not allow you to digest food properly, destroying muscle tissue. Eat slowly and put energy into your life.

    10. Cigarette smoking will cause restriction of the capillary system you are trying to build, making muscle gains difficult.
