  1. Hi Coach,
    this is realy a good question. I eat something about 1-2 hours before tournament. And I Start 15-30 minutes before my game to warm up. This became very imoprtant to me because then I start to concentrate on my game and I am very focused when the game starts. As a side effect my body is also warmed up : )

  2. Another great post, thank you coach.
    I have a request.
    Would you please make a post about how to get ready for tournaments and what should I do as player regarding warming up , the length of training sessions during a tournament, any particular training program specifically for tournament days, what and when should I eat on tournament days between matches and how long should I eat or not eat before or after the match and everything else related to conditioning for a tournament. Thanks again coach for your help and God bless.
