Taking Your Workouts into the Summer Sun

As the temperature starts to rise it’s important to give some thought to staying safe in the heat as you exercise outside. To help you get started in this regard, Athletic Republic Parkland has prepared the below post to share.

The Right Gear

While you don’t need to buy the most expensive gear you can find for your exercise, you do need to ensure you are wearing climate-appropriate clothing. For example:
  • While it can seem like second-nature to wear sleeveless shirts, when the sun starts to beat down, sleeves can be a great way to protect your skin when working out outside.
  • Items made from thicker fabrics can prevent your skin from breathing and keep sweat on your skin, leading to potential illness and extended recovery time.

Stay Hydrated

The higher the temperature then the more your body will sweat, which means that you need to pay more attention to your hydration levels. There isn’t a set amount of water you should drink when exercising, however, the best advice is to stay conscious of:
  • The temperature
  • What you are wearing
  • The level of exercise you are undertaking
  • How much you are sweating
Keeping these in your mind will help to ensure you remain hydrated. If you are finding that drinking enough water is difficult during your exercise, consider a sports drink alternative.
