Summer is the perfect season to show off your body and the results achieved. But we must not let ourselves go too far: continuing the training in the summer is necessary not to lose the goal. Studies have shown that the arrival of summer, despite the high temperatures, is a reason for greater commitment and motivation. We are thus brought to intensify our exercise and fitness routine. Many, thanks to the climate, prefer to perform training sessions in the summer under the bright sun.
Beware of the decompensation of training in summer
Taking or supplementing a good dose of vitamin D during fitness sessions is a real cure for health. However, precautions must be taken. Nausea, cramps, headaches, heat stroke and exhaustion are inconveniences closely related to high temperatures. They are more frequent when the body temperature rises as a result of the exercises and their intensity.
The training in summer is not, however, avoided, but it is good to follow the precautions. High temperatures involve a greater effort of the body and consequent higher energy expenditure. Here are some simple tips to follow to continue to follow your training in the summer.
Hydration during training in summer
Sweating is a physiological defense mechanism. It allows, in fact, to cool the body during intense and prolonged efforts. This is a very important function, to be carefully preserved. As? By an adequate supply of water. I recommend, not to drink in large gulps all at once, but several times, small amounts during the session. Hydration during a summer training is very important for not feeling hot and risking illness.
Technical sportswear to withstand high summer temperatures
Always opt for a technical outfit, designed and built to retain the lowest possible heat. However, the preference for cotton, breathable and light colors fabrics has always remained valid.
Step by step. Without exaggerating
Prudence even when you feel at the top! Even if it does not seem to be, temperatures will greatly affect training in the summer. Learn to listen to your body and the signals it sends you. Increase time and effort gradually. Start with shorter sessions than the usual ones you are used to and then increase with time.
Temperature and humidity under control
More often than not attention is paid only to the temperature. In reality, humidity is even more important and influential on the human organism. At high levels this limits the evaporation of sweat, resulting in a rise in body temperature. Always be careful to have a towel or towel with you to encourage the absorption of sweat.
You need help? Yes thanks
Leave the pride alone for once. If you feel unwell after and during high temperature training and feel unwell, hydrate yourself and above all seek shelter to cool your body. If you continue to feel bad, do not hesitate to ask for help.
