Summer Workout Tips

The activities of summertime (outdoor sports, running, cycling, etc.) are all great ways to keep in shape and in good health. However, it is very important to temper your summer workout routine with vital safety measures. As we mentioned last week, exercising in the  extreme summer heat can lead to dehydration, heat exhaustion and even heat stoke. Of course, you can always use your home gym or other indoor fitness equipment to stay in shape, but for many, outdoor exercise is an important part of their exercise regimen. If you are planning strenuous outdoor activity, here are some summer workout tips to help you stay well as you burn those calories, get that cardio workout and strengthen those muscles.

One of the best summer workout tips is planning ahead. Plan your exercise or outdoor game for early morning or evening, when the sun’s heat is less intense. Prepare yourself by having plenty of drinking water on hand. Some experts’ summer workout tips include drinking a full glass of water 30 minutes before and after exercise and taking smaller drinks during rigorous activity. Be sure to wear lightweight, breathable clothes. Other summer workout tips include avoiding alcohol, sodas, and coffee if you are planning outdoor exercise, as these actually dehydrate the body and can ruin a great summer workout. Tips for staying ahead of the weather include being aware of the humidity, allergen and ozone levels,. These summer workout tips help avoid respiratory issues during exercise. And when the apparent temperature (a combination of humidity and temperature) is above 98.6 degrees, experts say that any outdoor activity can be dangerous.

It’s also important to watch for three common heat-related illnesses so that you can get help when you need it. Tightness in the calves or abdominal muscles can indicate heat cramps and a need for re-hydration and rest. Heat exhaustion can appear as extensive sweating, extreme tiredness, and either hot or clammy skin. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek cooler temperatures, rest and hydrate well. With heat stroke, the most serious of the three conditions, sweating actually stops. The skin becomes red and dry. Heat stroke can cause a loss of consciousness or even death as internal body temperatures rise beyond safe levels. If you think you or someone you know is having heat stroke, call emergency medical services immediately.

At Nexersys, your safety and well being are our top concern. After all, what good is a fit body if you aren’t well enough to enjoy it? So whether you are in training or simply want the best workouts, please follow these simple summer workout tips, pay attention to your body, and enjoy a summer filled with fun outdoor activity.
