Drink ½ to one ounce of water per pound of body weight per day to maintain hydration.You can build muscle from carrying logs, flipping tires, hauling jugs of water, paddling, navigating monkey bars and countless other ways.But having a routine workout is not since the body quickly adapts.Constantly challenge yourself by adding different movements.Aim for one gram of protein per pound of body weight a day — less active people need less — and that should be spread out over five or six small meals.

The best muscle-building exercises are those that mimic everyday movements.
They’re also more fun and prepare you for obstacle races, if you’re so inclined.
