View Full Version : 80oz of water a day enough while on creatine?

I try to drink 80 ounces of water a day, is that enough while supplementing on 3g of creatine(along with other things)each day? If I drink anymore i have to pee really bad like every ten minutes which is hard while at school with our 90 minute classes, even 80 ounces a day makes me pee a ton. I dont feel dehydrated or weak or anything, but I'm also worried that by not getting enough water it will decrease the effectiveness of the creatine, so is 80 enough?

I never track how much water I drink. I just have made it habbit to always have a water bottle in my hand. But this is me.

I used to be obsessive over counting how much water I drank... but it is not really that big of a deal, nothing to stress about.

I would say 80 oz is sufficient, and is about what I drink (6x water bottles a day). If one day you only end up drinking 5, it certainly wont make/break your gains.

Well i normally have a small like 10 oz glass in the morning, a 20 oz bottle throughout my school day (along with a 20 oz gatorade at lunch, so that probably helps a lot too) and a few ounces from the drinking foutain lol, plus a 24 oz bottle at work, and 16 oz before bed, and thats all on a good day, im sure ive had days of just 50 ounces or even less.

That should be fine. If you're not pissing clear(ish), drink more water.

Personally, I just make sure to always have a water bottle in my hand.

80 doesn't seem like much, but the piss test (clear) is a good rule.
