“Home for the next week.”

Australian sprinter Bree Masters is soaking up the sun in Italy ahead of the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Another picture shows Masters posing for a mirror selfie in the gym, wearing black shorts and a sports bra. "Made it to Italy 🇮🇹 Home for the next week 🫶🏻", she captioned the post. Here's how the athlete eats, trains, and recovers.


Race Day Breakfast

Masters enjoys a nutritious breakfast on race days, with plenty of good carbs, healthy fats, and protein. "For breakfast I will eat either two poached eggs and avocado on wholemeal toast, or oats topped with mixed berries, honey and peanut butter," she told The Iconic. "When I am racing I usually snack on bananas, mixed nuts, True Protein bars or fruit puree sachets."


Warm Ups

Masters has a pre-race routine she never skips. "I would never start a session without a thorough warm up that included all of my drills and stretches," she told The Iconic. "I find it very important to prepare my body for the session, to ensure my body is ready to give 110% to every rep."


Sauna Sessions

Masters has a wind-down routine focused on recovery—she cooks dinner, and uses an at-home sauna in the evenings. "I have a sauna at home, and that's a huge part of it," she told Mamamia. "I try to do it every day or every second day, for about 20 minutes before I go to bed. It's a key recovery tool for my training because it sets me up for a really nice sleep."


Ice Baths


Masters swears by regular ice baths for recovery, as well as good sleep. "Along with my weekly recovery of compression garments and ice baths, I always ensure I am completing the basic things that enhance my recovery process, such as water intake, nutrition and sleep!" she told Mamamia. "My body is my engine and food and water is my fuel. By focusing on my nutrition, water intake and sleep, it helps my body refuel, recover and repair for each training session."


Positivity and Motivation

Masters tries to stay positive throughout her training. "There are always moments where I am not feeling my best and I feel unmotivated, however I always take the time to remind myself of the goals and dreams I want to achieve and remember that no dream comes easy and the work must be done to get closer to achieving that goal," she told The Iconic. "I also have a great coach and teammates who continually keep me motivated week in and week out."
