The Most Important Bodybuilding Supplement… EVER!

I could have added this to the whole shock body exercise preparation series that you have all been bombarded with this week, seeing as taking supplements is a key part of taking your muscles to the next level. But I decided to give this supplement some special treatment, by giving it it’s own post.

Most important supplement you say eh? How is that so? Our bodies need a variety of supplements to enable us to build hulk size muscles!

Yes that is true. But just like all of the other secrets that I unveil here at stayfitbug.com, It has usually been sitting right under your nose the whole time. Yet I bet you don’t take enough of the stuff.

WATER!

What the hell… that’s info even a 5 year old kid would know Shaun. Rubbish post… I’m outta here!

…. 😐

But wait!

Check out this info before you decide to hit the X button. I can guarantee you I will correct your current ways. Because I can guarantee you that you are not drinking enough water… even if you think you are.

Water is so important, that I consider it a ‘supplement‘ more than just some human need.

Scientist Fact

According to Jonny Bowden’s book ‘The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth‘ and a few other scientists out there, our body is 83 percent water. Your muscles are 75 percent water. Even your brain is 74 percent water.

Since you now know that… how the hell are you going to be trying to fill your body full of some whey protein shake. Eh?

I bet your diet looks a little something like this

  • Food 40%
  • Shakes and snacks 40%
  • Water 20%

Or something not far off from that. I like taking protein shakes and supplements as much as you do. In fact, you need supplements if your goal is to take your body to the next level. But your current ‘ways’ are just wrong.

And now for the high school science lesson.

The Benefits Of Water

  • Crucial to live and survive
  • Can help improve energy
  • Increase mental and physical performance
  • Remove various toxins and waste from your body.

But most importantly for you, is that drinking water is necessary to digest and absorb vitamins and nutrients. That means,

No water = No digesting those ‘protein shakes‘ That you love ever so much.

And you’ll have a hard time staying true to the saying,

You are what you eat

As your body won’t be very effective in converting protein into muscle.

Have I converted you to remain on this post yet? Yea… I think so!

But I’m not going to beat you up about it too much though. Because not drinking enough water is something that we all do, myself included.

Here Is a Quick Solution.

  1. Drink a large glass of water with every meal
  2. Carry a large bottle of water with you and make it a daily goal to finish it by the end of the day
  3. Have a glass of water after every alcoholic drink when you are out partying

The third one I have been doing for years. It seemed to prove effective every time I tried to drive back home. Oops! Did I just say that 😮 well, I was sober almost every time, so not guilty!

Sure, water is far from a sexy supplement, and doing the above might even bore you to death at times. But doing so and following through with it will allow for some drastic improvements to your body, for the way it looks AND feels. And this is definitely something you will want to do if you are preparing for shock body exercises.

See you in the comments.
