Play around with how to best fuel and hydrate before the event to avoid stomach upset.
Hydration starts long before a workout! Enjoy milk with meals and water in between. Drink frequently throughout the day, carrying a water bottle can be a helpful reminder. Making a visit to the restroom? You should be going at least every couple of hours and urine should be light in color.
Got your workout in? Make sure you are fueling well to maximize your hard work and accomplish your goals.
Sleep and rest days are critical for athlete recovery and peak performance. This is the time when muscles repair and recover from exercise and day to day activities. Not getting enough sleep may mean your body is not repairing properly, which can negatively impact performance. Most adults need 7-8 hours a day, while teens may need up to 10 hours.
