In Topic: Tips for not overheating?

18 June 2013 - 10:10 AM

Start hydrating several days before you go play. Drink extra water and allow your body time to adjust. Gotta give all those cells time to uptake the water.

For me, I've found I play a lot cooler when I leave off the arm pads and gloves. Granted, I'm not a slider or a diver, so I don't worry about not having arm pads. If I appear to be sliding or diving, I am just falling with style. I've been amazed at how much cooler I feel just by leaving off the arm pads and gloves.

And to echo what someone else said, if you feel like you are starting to overheat, take a break, find some shade, drink some cold water, and sit until you cool down.

I played at OK D-Day a few years back and it took me 40 minutes to cool off during a mini-game. Take care of your body. It's only a game.

Did anyone LOL? Chuckle? Chortle? Stifle a grimace? Inquiring minds want to know. But I guess I better get back to work now... Hmmm ... "Stifle A Grimace" I think I will add that to my long, long list of unused paintball team names...

Dear VI -

Thanks for checking, but t'is OK. No need to bother Praetorian. My feeling are not hurt.

What matters most is if I did make at least one person chuckle or even LOL. Because I had fun doing it!

Budget baller method:

1. $5 blue foam camping pad. Cut kneepads to fit.

2. $2 mouse pads. Cut kneepads to fit. Thinner, lighter, cheaper.

Use at your own discretion.

*sigh* Volunteered myself. Haven't made the list. Don't even have a cool car. I guess I truly am an outcast. *sigh* Forever alone.
