Now that it's warming up, it's time to turn the heat up on your workouts. Even though the temperatures are high, that doesn't mean that you're stuck inside. Get up, get outside, and get active. Here are the best ways to avoid burnout when the weather heats up... check out our tips right here!
1. Enhance your water.
Plain water is fine, but why should you settle with fine? Give your water, and your workout, the power boost it needs by infusing it with fruit and all those sweet, sweet minerals that come along with it. Cucumbers, lemon, mint, strawberries, cantaloupe, all act as electrolyte-bestowing, flavor-building, energy-giving sources when thrown into a plain glass of water. Drink up -- hydration is key!
2. Let yourself acclimate.
It takes 5 to 10 days to acclimate your body to working out in hot weather, so keep this in mind when you're doing your daily burn. You want to get in a solid workout without overstraining your body. So keep in mind that your body probably won't be performing to 100% until it's used to the weather.
3. Mind the humidity.
Humidity plays a surprisingly huge roll in affecting our workouts. One of the most effective ways the body cools itself is through sweat -- the liquid released while we sweat cools the body as it evaporates. In a humid environment, sweat evaporates less because there is already ample moisture in the air. Keep this in mind while working out to stay safe.
4. Move indoors.
On extra hot days, it would serve you to move your workout inside. By staying out of the sun, and ideally in an environment where the temperature can be controlled, you'll be reducing strain on your body and allowing yourself to work out to your fullest abilities.
