One of the most common errors are the "water load", to drink more water than t normal in an only moment and just before to start; this can bring a dangerous condition called Hyponatremia that can cause vomit, cramps and nausea.

The correct quantity of liquids must be calculated on the state of training, the bodily weight and the perspiration, for a man of 70 kg we recommend at least 350 ml of liquids; in fact, another important point is what it is assumed before the competition.

We recommend isotonic solutions in case of elevated temperatures, or slow absorption carbohydrates solutions if our organism does not ask for magnesium or potassium.

Important to check the colour of the urines (they must be pale yellow).
