6 Tips For Exercising In The Heat
- Drink up.
Exercising in hot weather increases our body temperature. To keep cool, make sure first of all that you’re drinking plenty of water.
- Ease up.
If you normally run, jog or walk. If you’re a brisk walker, slow it down. As your body adapts to the heat, gradually increase the pace and length of your workout. If you have a medical condition and/or take prescription medications, do ask your physician if you need to take any additional precautions.
- Avoid the hottest part of the day.
Rise early to catch the cool of the morning, or go out at sunset or later. In the heat of midday, take cover under shade. Jump in a pool. Sign up for an aqua-aerobics class.
- Wear light-colored, lightweight clothing.
Dark colors absorb the heat, which can make you feel as if you’re wrapped in a warm blanket. Heavyweight, tight-fitting clothing will also heat you up. Keep it loose. Keep it light. More air will be able to circulate over your skin, keeping you cool.
- Eat snacks to maintain energy.
But pick juicy snacks like fruit. The last thing you need in scorching heat are dry snacks like crackers, popcorn, or energy bars that require your body to add water. Plus, dry snacks are often dense with calories, which means they can easily foil weight-loss goals, summer or winter.
- Know when to say, “I’m going inside.”
Pay heed to the heat. Listen to your body. If you are starting to feel the effects of the heat, go inside. Rest and relax.
If it is too hot, come inside, do resistance training!
