The dog days of summer are upon us, but you don't have to put your workout routine on the back burner just because it feels too hot to exercise. Instead of using the heat as another excuse to skip my workout, I get creative with my summertime activities so I can keep up my fitness goals. So what do i actually do? I love training outdoors whenever possible, but exercising in an air-conditioned gym (or house) is the best way to keep me cool. I pick my toughest workout of the week (usually running intervals on the treadmill) to do indoors. I don't even bother attempting them outside in the summer! What are you advices? Please share
Run in the rain.I love running outdoors, but the summer heat doesn't always make it easy for me. When rain is in the forecast, I like to plan my run during the showers. A little rain cools me off, and it's a nice change of pace from my usual super-sweaty runs. Plus, just the thought of running in the rain is fun and exciting, which prevents me from skipping my workout all together! And one more advice. Pick up a racket,I love a good game of tennis in the summertime, but when it's too hot outside on the courts, I swap my racket for a different type. Racquetball and squash are typically played indoors, so I stay cool while getting in my workout.
Get a wet workout.This one might seem like a no-brainer, but exercising in a pool or lake is an instant way to cool off. Try a new activity like paddle-boarding, check out your local gym for a water aerobics class, or round up some friends for a competitive game of water volleyball. Whatever you decide to do, you'll get a great workout!Cool off like kids.When it's boiling outside, play some of those fun games from your childhood. Run through the sprinkler or have a squirt-gun and water-balloon fight. When the sun sets, plan a late-night game of flashlight tag. These games are a guaranteed good time. I mean, isn't running around with a big smile on your face the best type of exercise?!
Plan a mini triathlon.Have a free morning on the weekend? Plan a mini triathlon for you and a friend, but finish with the swimming part so you can cool off at the end of your workout. Try this: Run for 20 minutes, bike for 30 minutes, and then swim a few laps in your favorite watering hole.Hit the mall.Too hot to take a lunchtime walk outside? Take your workout to a nearby mall with air conditioning. Lace up your sneakers and get your heart pumping without overheating!Find a cool spot.Wherever you happen to live, there are probably certain areas where joggers, walkers, and bikers flock because they are cooler—literally. Maybe it's a boardwalk near the ocean or just a shady path in a local park. Seek out the least hot places to exercise and become a frequent visitor.

But actually i do and you could do....Join a night league...It's much more enjoyable to exercise without the sun blazing down on you. Stay motivated to exercise once the sun sets by joining a team that meets in the evenings. From softball to kickball to running groups, there's something for everyone.
End your day with a walk. When the sun is low in the sky, I like to take an evening stroll around the neighborhood with my husband and dog. It's a nice way for us to get in some exercise when the temperatures aren't as high, and also to relax after a long day. Or you could really hit your trainins at the evening or even night time. Why not. The weather is great then. It is not that hot then... And for sure it is very important to drink enough water. I think we all know that so no need to talk about it again and again. Also instead of guy you can go to the pool or other open water spaces and have fun there
I think there is nothing bad in it. Bring plenty of water with you, or plan your route so it includes stops at places to get more. I wear a belt that holds a bottle water on my waist, and I carry one in my hand. I wear thin, light-colored clothing that wicks sweat away from my skin. I also wear a baseball cap that covers my eyes and the top of my head from the direct sun, but still allows the heat I generate to escape. And of course, I put sunscreen on my face, ears, neck, and any part of my body that is exposed. Drink cold water, get ice packs under your arms, on your head and on your skin, the key is to cool down your core temperature. If you experience multiple symptoms, call the amergency
You should eat often.Dieters often count on summer heat to kill their appetite — but exercising without enough fuel is dangerous. No one's suggesting a huge plate of pasta. But if you're going to work out, snack throughout the day on lettuce, carrots, grapefruit, and apples-all great hot-weather picks because they're naturally filled with water. And try to avoid hight - heat hours. That will save you.Hit the streets before 10 A.M. and after 3 P.M. Another stay-cool tip: Run or walk on dirt paths instead of sun-absorbing pavement. And drink water before you feel thirsty
The best time for workout is the morning. Best time to work out for fat burning is the morning When you exercise in the morning your body tends to burn more fat. The main reasons why this is happening are: Low blood sugar levels force the body to look for other energy sources so it starts converting fat from the reserves to fuel. Some hormones that accelerate fad burning (like cortisol) are at high levels in the morning. But as for the weather. I am more than sure that hot weather is not good for your oosing weight and it is bad for the heart as well.
To deflect, not absorb, the sun's rays, wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing. Try cotton or "wicking" fabrics, which move sweat away from your body, or these GHRI-tested sun-safe clothing. And don't forget your head: A hat or visor with a four-inch brim will best protect your face.Slather on sunscreen.Apply it every two hours. SPF 30 or higher is recommended. Burns aren't just bad for your complexion; they also raise your body temperature. Do not work too much. we both know that it cn influence your health in a bad way.
