Five exercises that essentially comprise your workout routine all through? Exercise Therapy you undertake to prevent injury or overcome it? Your advice to beginners in water polo.
Water polo is a very physical sport so we need to work very hard to be in good shape for the games. My first recommendation is doing a good warm up in order to prevent injuries. In order to gain physical condition, swimming is a good way plus very healthy.
Leg work is also very important, so there are many different exercises in which you can gain strength at the gym. Always, be careful with the technique when learning a new exercise to avoid getting injured.
For any beginner in water polo I recommend to focus on their technique and legs in the water. As I said before repetition is the key, so do your best every day and you will definitely improve.
Also, to prevent for injuries in water polo (especially shoulder ones which are the most common), I would recommend arriving 10’ early and working on some band exercises before starting the practice.
The diet that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit? Two supplements that are key essential for immunity and enhanced performance.
My diet basically consists of balancing the different food groups: I get to know my body better and know what works best for each moment of training and competition. We generally consume a high amount of carbohydrates and protein, and the required amount of healthy fats (such as avocado and salmon).
To complement my diet and to perform at my best, I use Usana’s supplements. I recommend trying Usana Cellsentials (minerals and antioxidants) and my second favorite is Usana bio mega.
Training in extreme weather conditions can show its toll on hair & skin. Five tips you follow for skin, and hair care?
That is a good question. For my hair, I found a really good keratin treatment that I do once a year at the hairdresser. I use the Kevin Murphy shampoo and conditioner. A good tip that I have recently discovered is applying coconut oil on wet hair, leave it for an hour and then wash my hair.
For skin care I highly recommend applying sunscreen when training outdoors.I use Celavive protective day cream and lotion.
Who has been your greatest influence and motivator in your success in the field of your career? Quote, you live by.
My heroes as a young player were basically the older girls on my club team. They were my point of reference and, a few years later, they became my teammates, and it was a very big privilege to play next to players that had been my heroes since I was a young girl. Nowadays, my teammates still inspire me every day.
I like the following quote: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
