This is key to give the maximum in your sports preparation

6. On the day of the race, bathe with hot water and at the end, rinse with warm water. This will allow you to heat your muscles and optimize your flexibility

7. Have a light breakfast . A good option is that you eat yogurt with cereal, a banana and a small glass of orange juice
