FITNESS TIPS: Week 9

Summer HEAT and Exercise

Exercising in warm temperatures adds additional stress to the body.  The Big 3 factors that increase your core temperature are 1/ temperature, 2/ humidity and 3/ the exercise itself. So here is what you need to watch out for:

  • Muscle cramps
  • Weakness / Clamminess
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Excessive sweating OR when your body stops sweating at all

 

What we can do to be preventive:

  • Don’t work out when it’s Hot or humid! Avoid mid-day sun. Early Am or Pm is ideal
  • Wear clothes that are sweet wicking or can allow your body to cool itself
  • Wear a heart rate monitor so you can track. Keep it around 70% of max or below
  • Most importantly hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, before, during, and after your workout
