In many circumstances, and depending on the intensity of the exercise, it will be interesting to integrate an active phase of aerobic exercise at very gentle intensity as an element of regenerative action.
CONCENTRATION DURING PRACTICE
Considering that the sportsman is by definition because he practices a sport regularly, this same regularity should avoid monotony and boredom, as both are directly related to the increased risk of injury, both traumatic and overuse. The athlete should be focused during the training session, know their limits and be aware of their abilities at all times.
FOLLOW-UP OF ESTABLISHED PLANNING AND PLANNING
It is very important to follow the planning and schedule established by the coach. Sports training is an area of recognition is a very active area of knowledge, which bases its results on the proper organization of the stimuli (training load) over time depending on the response of the athlete, and therefore is key Not to modify the contents presented (respecting the loads of training, recovery times, etc.).
If your training is performed in humid and/or hot areas, it is very important to hydrate well before, during and after the training session (one or two glasses of fresh water before beginning and take with us a bottle of water of half a liter During practice is a good way to stay hydrated), and in summer choose the first or last hours of the day to avoid the harmful effects of heat in our body, especially if we are in the initial stages.
The athlete needs an adequate supply of energy in the form of a healthy and balanced diet. By caring for their food, the athlete favors and facilitates recovery processes, and especially the anabolic phase of response to catabolism produced by training efforts.

In addition, the use of complementary techniques and methods (physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, etc.) is a success factor in optimizing the athlete’s recovery between efforts.
ENJOY TRAINING AND COMPETITION
Although the training has many hard times and the competition supposes for many athletes a particularly stressful situation, it is fundamental that the individual is able to control his anxiety in these circumstances and enjoy both daily practice and competition. For this, in many cases, the athlete will also need the specific training and training of psychological control techniques and the support of qualified professionals.
PATIENCE AND CONSTANCE, KEYS TO SUCCESS
The last of our counsels could not be other than that of patience and perseverance. If there is a human activity in which there is a clear cause-effect relationship between effort and dedicated energy and the result obtained, this is certainly the sport. Everything, in the end, is a matter of time, and to be able to meet this requirement, the individual must be able to invest enough time over long enough to reach their goal.
