It may seem like every day is a good day to work out but during summer, "It's so hot outside" is an excuse to escape the workout, however, there are some tips and tricks to overcome the Snags to working out in the heat and have fun exercising. Here are the tips to enjoy your summer workouts from Deckline Leitao, a Bangalore based fitness expert.
It would be great to add some electrolyte powder to your water, which aids you at providing that much-needed short-term energy and helps you to escape from the chances of muscle cramps. Simple and common oral rehydration solutions available at your local chemist can do the job in a very inexpensive manner.
DRESS UP FOR THE OCCASION
Use sportswear that allows your body to 'breathe' through them. Cotton t-shirts and shorts should be avoided for intense outdoor exercises because they have a tendency to get sweaty, stay wet, become heavy and make you feel hotter. Cotton and especially polyester fabric can make you uncomfortable, especially if the clothing is body-hugging.
Wearing a cap/hat and sports sunglasses won't just look cool on you but also help keep your head and eyes safe from UV rays and fatigue due to heat and sunlight.
DO IT AT THE RIGHT TIME
Try to exercise outdoors before 8 AM or after 5 PM. preferably choose shaded areas for your activities.
DRINK AND SLEEP
Water and sleep, both these parameters are the basics of both good health and fitness. Less water can cause dehydration and increase your heart rate. Lack of sleep can affect coordination, balance and reaction time. In summer, the negative effects of lack of sleep and exercise can manifest and manifold.
GET AN ENERGY BOOST
A multivitamin and mineral capsule every day can help provide vitamins and minerals that might be lacking in our diets. Unless your daily diet is textbook-perfect, most people would do well to ask their doctors to prescribe them a single-dose multivitamin-mineral supplementation.
GET YOUR CARBS RIGHT
If you perform endurance activities such as long-distance running, then it would be great to slightly increase your intake of carbohydrates in summer. Choose low-to-moderate glycemic index carbohydrates during the day and high glycemic index carbohydrates immediately after a workout to quickly replenish your energy levels.
STAY CALM AND TRAIN RIGHT
Stay sensible in your training. Many people feel that there is some great virtue in pushing their bodies beyond their capabilities even when the risk of injury is high. Sports and martial arts-themed movies tend to further propagate this notion of hard work, finally leading to success. It is important to remember that sports persons push their bodies to win medals and for their careers at various stages of performance.
Most importantly listen to your body. Your mind might push you to train through exhaustion but ask yourself how your body truly feels. If you feel dizzy or disoriented during exercise in the heat, then stop immediately.
It's never too early or too late to work towards being the healthiest you. So How do you want to feel this summer...Fit or jealous?
