What’s With The Gallon Jug?

The Dude With The Jug

Have you ever seen someone in the gym carrying a gallon jug of water? That guys is usually me. But why? Well, one reason being I drink a gallon of water a day. Water has numerous benefits when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. Check out few of the great water benefits you might not have known.

Water Benefits

  • Weight Loss
  • Food Suppressant
  • Boosts Metabolism
  • Flushes Toxins
  • Relieves Headaches
  • Healthier Looking Skin
  • Muscle Growth aka. GAINS
  • Improved Endurance

If you’re not drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day you’re only hurting yourself.

What The Jug Has Done For Me

Whether you drink from a gallon jug, water bottle, or shaker it makes no difference. Drinking from a gallon jug just makes it simple to track my daily water intake. It also motivates me to drink more water and fewer carbonated beverages which are generally loaded with sugar. So the point here is not to get you to drink from a gallon jug, even though I hope you do. My point is to get you to look at your daily water intake and drink more.

Water Jug Motivation

My water jug motivates me to get in the gym! Almost every water jug I have has a motivational quote or something to inspire and keep me focused. Check out just a few of my jugs below and let me know what you think. Also, if you have any ideas on what else I could put on my jug I would love to hear it. Leave a comment and feel free to tag #WaterJugFitness on Instagram and Twitter with your own water jug pictures.

One thought on “What’s With The Gallon Jug?

  1. Ha! I like writing comments on my jugs too. My favourite notes are:

    “BREATHE!” – to not only remind myself to breathe when I lift, but also to practice breathing exercises throughout the day. (I just had surgery on my nose to hopefully improve my breathing and therefore performance).

    “STRETCH” – to remind myself to stand up and do some stretches every now and then. Sitting at my desk all day in the office starts to wear on me, and getting up for a quick stretch is crucial.
