Helpful Tips For Exercising Under The Hot Summer Sun

A lot of people love exercising under the sun, even when it’s summer. Even though it’s scorching hot outside, it can be fun to feel the natural summer breeze while you exercise outdoors.

Although it can be enjoyable to exercise outside, it can be quite harmful to your health, too. This is especially true during the summer when temperatures can rise really high. However, you don’t have to let the summer heat prevent you from enjoying a good workout outdoors. Here are some tips you can follow to make exercising outdoors enjoyable and safe even under the hot summer weather:

Wear light-colored and lightweight clothing when working out. Don’t wear dark-colored clothes when exercising outdoors since they absorb the heat. You will end up feeling so uncomfortably hot, like you’re wrapped in a warm blanket while under the warm sun. In addition, thick, heavyweight, and tight-fitting clothing will also heat your body up. When working outdoors during the summer, always

wear light and loose clothing so that more air will be able to circulate over your skin and hence, keep you cool.

Don’t exercise outdoors during the hottest part of the day. Wake up early to catch the cool of the morning to work out or exercise at sunset or at night. You won’t be able to work out properly if you do it in the heat of mid-day (usually between 10 am and 4 pm). However, if you have no choice but to work out during these times, consider signing up for an aqua aerobics class. You should also always carry a small, portable fan or spray bottle for skin surface cooling and take a dip in the pool after exercising during the hottest times of the day.

Wear sunblock before working out. Apply UVA/UVB sunblock, preferably with titanium or zinc dioxide before going out. If you will be exercising outdoors for more than 2 hours, don’t forget to reapply sunblock at two-hour intervals.

Stay hydrated. Exercising in hot weather can rapidly increase a person’s body temperature. Your body’s natural cooling system can fail if you are exposed to soaring temperatures for too long. This can result in heat exhaustion and even heat stroke. To make sure your body keeps cool, drink plenty of water. While you’re exercising outdoors, drink 8 to 10 ounces of water every 20 minutes. You can also fill up on fruits and vegetables rich in water content such as pineapple and watermelon before working out. Drink plenty of water as well after exercising.
