For any athlete the mental game depends on good technical skill development but more important good health. For example, we all know that water plays a critical part in keeping us sharp in competition. Water is the largest component of the body with over 75% of the body being made of water. And were you aware that over 76% of the brain tissue is water. Think about it.
Athletic therapist and Osteopathic Manual Practitioner Lindsay Dixon says water is crucial and is the primary regulator of all functions including digestion, circulation, carrying all nutrients to vital body substances, maintaining body temperature and growth and repair of tissues.
