Tips for Exercising in the Summer

Summer is in full swing and it’s finally time to go outside and soak up some sun! Summer gives you the opportunity to take your workouts outside– but along with the warmer weather comes extreme heat and humidity. Here are a few tips to help you get through your summer workouts:

Avoid the hottest time of the day- Avoid exercising outside between 10am till 3pm where temperatures are the highest. If mornings aren’t an option, check a weather app to find out the lowest temperatures during the day. Wear loose and light colored clothing- Avoid wearing dark workout clothing that absorbs heat. Light and loose clothing will help you keep cool during your workout. Don’t forget to wear a hat to keep the sun off your head! Wear Sunscreen – Always protect your skin; even when you are outside getting your sweat on! Stay Hydrated! – Before working out outside, drink water to stay hydrated during your workout. When you sweat, you lose a lot of water and electrolytes. Don’t forget to replenish your fluids post-workout. Exercise in cooler places – Shaded trails will help keep you cool on the hot summer day! But most importantly…listen to your body – if you start feeling dizzy or nauseous, stop exercise immediately.
