Take note of what you should do this summer to practice sports
Remember to drink water it will prevent you from muscle cramps and other conditions related to excess heat. Fluids should be consumed frequently during strenuous activity. It is recommended to hydrate every half hour of training and not wait until thirst arises. One way to check if you are drinking enough water is the color of your urine. This should be light in color, if it is dark it means that you are not drinking enough water.

Symptoms of exhaustion are racing heart rate, low blood pressure, possibly a slight fever, and hot, flushed, dry or sweaty skin. People with symptoms of exhaustion may appear pale, feel dizzy or nauseated.
This symptom is serious and sometimes fatal, in which the body is unable to sweat and regulate its temperature. Symptoms include rapid heartbeat, abnormally high or low blood pressure, rapid breathing, confusion, fainting, or loss of consciousness.

Even the youngest athletes have to stretch their muscles before exercising as a way of prevent muscle injuries. Stretching lengthens the muscle or “loosens” it, making it less prone to injury. Although warming up before training is more important as we get older, it is recommended to do it at all ages.
