Exercising in the Heat

What a summer!!!!!!!   Relentless heat and record temperatures almost everywhere.  However, do not let the heat keep you from your fitness goals. 

Few tips:  

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.   Be sure to get plenty of water.   It is even more critical in the hot weather.

Stick to morning workouts.  Even if you are not a morning person, get the exercise in early.  

Spend a few extra minutes warming up.   Do not just jump into heavy/intense sets.

If you can, workout at a gym instead of opting for the home or outside exercise.  If you are not a member of a gym, most facilities have day or week passes - and they generally have air-conditioning.

Go easy on yourself.   Realize that you may not be able to do killer new personal best records when the body is stressed from the heat.  Just going from the house to the car in this summer’s temperatures takes a toll on the body.  

Keep focus and commitment -  keep working out!!!!

Stay tuned……….
