Best ways to prepare for a intense day of paintball? ;o and how to stop mask fogging?

What do you do to prepare for a long day of paintball? like, any exercises or anything... and is there any training you can do? Im not talking about the obvious stuff like your aim, I mean things like running and sliding...

and what is the best ways to stop goggles from fogging up? I always hate getting gogged 'cos it means i have to wash it off with water after, and water always = fog the next round -_-, I tried anti-fog spray and it does make a difference, but i STILL get some fog ... ?? is there anything else that will work well?

Are you crazy? Just buy an Anti-fog lens or a good mask.

Yea, the way to stop the fog is a pair of anti-fog lenses. DO NOT get fog-resistant, they indeed cause fog during conditions that normally do not cause fog!

As for getting ready for a long day, just have all your gear, tool box, and a container of alcohol and towels. It doesn’t hurt to get some running in during the week, get your endurance level up.

Get a good breakfast for sure, make sure my guns in working condition, and listen to some good music.

Get all your stuff togeather like a big boy. Listening to fast music doesnt hurt. If i listen to fast music it gets me very pumped. You can always eat a few hours before. Dont eat before, chances are you wont feel good if you eat right before and run a lot.

to stop mask fogging... hmm... breathe less. try to breathe slow through your nose.

i don't know if its the same for you guys, but my mask always fogs when i start breathing hard or getting nervous(like when i'm the only one left on my team or am about to be bunkered) which is the worst time it could possibly fog up.

Your goggles dont fog up from you breathing hard, thats from when you sweat, it evaporates putting a coat of water vapor on your googles

another thing that probably will help is wear a headband because it keeps the sweat from getting in the goggles

I dont know but its always helped me to listen to more suddle music...concentrate on the game. Think of your moves and go through them all in your head.

I like blink 182 music not to hardcore but enough to get me energized but it doesnt take my mind off it

Mask Fogging:
Spit on the inside and outside of the lense. Rub with paper towel. Exhale through mouth as much as possible (there are more holes near the mouth than the nose on most masks) while playing.

If you wear a Balaclava or other type of head gear like a headband or a hat that helps keeping the sweat out of the mask.

I do a lap. If you get water on the lining they will fog, Just be more careful when cleaning the inside of your mask.

i always stretch, and eat good, drink lots of water.
Also in game i always bring my ipod and listen to gladiator sound tracks or halo soundtracks, to get me in the game and pumped up . Oh, and a good nights rest.

and just get a headband or use one of those beanie style ones like the lunch lady (but fabric LOL)

eventually get a new mask, i like the mask better then helmet, most of the time i just use a mask and a hat on backwards

stay hydrayted, dont eat junk food when you take a break. Eating something good tasting, but mildly healty is a good idea. Granola bars or nutri-grain bars come to mind. Wear more layers then nesscary is a good idea too, specially if its cold out.I Wear a longsleve t-shirt, with a sweatshirt, and then a light jacket over it. You'll stay warm when waiting to go out to the feild, and you hardly feel anything when your hit in the upper torso. Plus, when you get too hot, take off the jacket.

I've been wearing helmets for a while. (Scince my dad got his motorcycle. That was around 5 years ago) And a way to keep the lenses from fogging up, is to breath through your nose, and out your mouth. When my friends and I went out paintballing, most of them complained about their masks fogging up, because they inhaled and exhaled through their nose.

i've also found that if i spend the morning with like 5 pound weights tied to my wrist it warms up my muscles. then when i get to the field take them off and your gun will seem lighter then usual =]
