It’s the beginning of August and most of the country is in the midst of a heatwave. We don’t want to sacrifice our daily workout routines, but we also don’t want to die of heat stroke. It’s an internal battle daily. There are some really great ways to keep up with your workouts and not suffer from the blistering sun.
1. Opt for a water workout.
If you can, do your workouts in the water. Swimming laps is a really great way to exercise. Water aerobics is also something fun, and a great way to switch up your everyday fitness routines.
2. Timing is everything.
You absolutely do not want to work out in the middle of the day. Make your workouts as early in the morning as possible, or change it to the evening. It’s usually pretty cool after 7pm in most places.
3. Hydrate before.
Hydrating 15 to 30 minutes before you start working out is extremely important. This is to avoid dehydration, and to keep your overall energy up.
4. Workout Inside
I understand a lot of people enjoy working out outside, but we won’t judge you if you change it to an inside work out. Stick yourself in front of a fan, or soak up the AC of a gym, and do your workout inside!
