5 tips to Take While Working Out in Summer Heat!
1. Prep Your Body With Water
The National Academy of Sports Medicinerecommends drinking between 14 to 22 ounces of water, before working out. Choose cold.
2. Follow Up With Regular Sips of Fluid
For every 15 minutes of exercise, drink at least 6 ounces of water -- more is better. Don't wait until you feel thirsty; thirst isn't a good indicator of your hydration levels. For exercise that exceeds an hour, add in a sports drink to help refuel and hydrate your body.
3. Cover Your Head
Wearing a hat during the summertime isn't just good for avoiding sun exposure, it can also cool you down. When possible, wear a wide-brimmed hat during summer exercise, preferably one with small holes or thin fabric that allows air to pass through. Because the hat's brim blocks the sun's rays, it also blocks out the heat, cooling you down.
4. Warriors wear Light, Breathable Clothing
Dark, bulky clothing attracts heat, which warms your body up and can put you at risk for heat exhaustion. Fortunately, light clothing has the opposite effect, so wear light-colored clothing when possible, opting for short sleeves or shirts with.. Lighter material allows your skin to breathe and naturally regulate your body temperature
5. Avoid Heat When Possible
The heat usually reaches its peak between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., so schedule exercise around this time when possible. Your best bet is to work out in the early morning or late evening, when the temperature is at its coolest.
