Tips To Stay Hydrated During Summer Workouts

Here are a few cool and useful tips to make exercising comfortable in the summer.
Stay Well Hydrated: Drink 2 glasses of water 30 minutes prior to exercise, one and half glasses every 15 minutes during the workout and 2 glasses in the 30 minutes following your workout.

Back Off Intensity Levels: When training in the heat, you don’t have to work as hard to elevate heart rate. Closely monitor your heart rate during aerobic sessions and pare down the pace accordingly.

Take The Workout Indoors: Exercising in an air-conditioned space on an exercise bike, treadmill or with a simple set of dumbbells is a great way to beat the heat and get your exercise.

Adjust Clothing: Avoid synthetics. Wear lightweight, loose-fitting and light coloured cottons instead. Don’t skip the socks, though.

Workout In Water: Find a local pool and switch to swimming during the summer months. Aquatic dumbbells offer you a way strength train in the water as well.

Keep The Face And Neck Clear: If you have long hair, pull it back and up. Do allow your skin to breathe.

The more you exercise in the summer on a hot day, the more fluids you're going to lose so staying hydrated with water or a sports drink is your best option.
