It’s been great outside with the sun and hot weather as of late!
As the temperature and humidity increases it can cause our bodies to sweat more and work a bit harder than normal.
Here are a couple of tips for working out in the heat.
Hydrate before, during and after. We should be hydrating frequently with water throughout the entire day. Proper hydration can prevent heat exhaustion and dehydration.
Wear appropriate clothing. Avoid wearing heavy and or dark clothing as this will cause you to be uncomfortable and make your body a bit warmer than it already is.
Listen to your body! If something isn’t feeling right or you’re really struggling during the workout, it’s okay to stop. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Pushing through the workout when your body is telling you something wrong is a recipe for disaster with heat stroke, exhaustion, dehydration and even death. Listen to your body and err on the side of caution.
