“As far as training goes, it’s all about the individual.” Knowing that we must go to the details, not to make losses… Simple things that we can never neglect. This day is all about gaining mental awareness. We know that our bodies will be fine from June 1, so we just have to make sure that our minds stay sharp and focused these days,” he said.
