    I usually go to the water fountain after every exercise and drink a couple sips.

    Then after i get out of the gym i have a shake immideitly. Throughout the day though i drink about 8-12 bottles of water. 9oz

    you can take in too much water, but I doubt you're anywhere near that threshold.

    I try to drink enough over the course of the day to keep my pee clear (or neon yellow with multi-V). During workout, I drink when i feel I need it.

    I hate the people who bring 2 gallon water jugs with them. By the end of the workout they've consumed a half gallon. What is the purpose of carrying around a 2 gallon water jug if you're not going to drink it.

    i get 32 ounces a work out, and about a gallon a day. this doesn't include milk and tea. it'd probably be about 1.25 gallons a day of fluid, which doesn't count those you get from food.

    I drink about two liters (1/2 gallon) during the workout.
    And about 1 and 1/2 gallons for the day.

    I bring 3 cans of pop with me to work each day and I have to have a bottle of water that I bring in before I can have a can of pop. The water bottle is ~30 ounces or so and I have 3-4 of those while I'm at work alone. Then I drink 2-4 of those while training. Making yourself drink water before your favorite everyday drink makes it easier.

    That's what I do as well. I usually go through about 1/2 gallon in the hour or so I am lifting.

    While I'm at work. Before work I have ~1 liter and when I get home I have at least 2 liters.

    If you're questioning it from a calorie stand point, I drink diet.
