Warm Weather Exercise Safety

6.29.2015 hot weather exercise

As we are approaching the hottest months of the year, here are few tips for you to prepare for exercising in the warm weather:

Avoid exercising outside during peak hours – The sun’s peak hours are between noon and 3 p.m.

Hydrate – Drink water before, during, and after exercise. If you plan on doing a vigorous-intensity exercise for an hour or more, try to have a low/no sugar sports drink to replenish electrolytes.

Wear proper gear – Wear moisture-wicking fabric, which helps to cool down your body by wicking sweat away from your body and dries quickly. Also wear a hat and sunglasses to protect your skin and eyes from the sun.

Listen to your body – Take breaks whenever you need and never push yourself beyond your comfort zone.
