I go to UCLA and I see alot of weightlifters bringing around gallon cartons of water which are gone at the end of the day. Is there something to this insane amount of water consumption or do they just like water? I know you're supposed to get a good amount of water but is this too much? What is recommended?

Athletes need about 0.66 times their bodyweight ounces of water per day. This does not include shakes. The more active you are the more you require. Carrying a gallong jug around is NOT an insane amount of water.

Also it has healthy benefits, like preventing kidney stones.
