Drink water first thing in the morning. Follow whatever programme you're on after that.

Milk is close almost 90% water, so are drinking plenty of water. Add to that water from your food and you are getting 3 litres or more per day.

The modern mass hysteria of drinking enough water is just bonkers. Do you feel thirsty all the time? Does your pee come out a thick yellow all the time? If not, you're well hydrated.

I imagine drinking three litres of milk would be more than enough hydration for the day.

Do you not drinking water while working out, out of curiosity?

One should be fully hydrated before you start your workout if your interested in maximizing your performance. I've been focusing on this myself recently and have noticed I don't need to go for the water bottle nearly as much during the workout and feel better for it.
