13 Tips for exercising in the summer heat


If you can, exercise outdoors but in shaded areas. Seek the shade of tall buildings or, better still, under overhanging trees. Parks, trails and other tree-lined routes can help you stay cooler than exercising in direct sunlight. Finding a patch of green beats exercising in urban areas, as asphalt and concrete retain heat.


Absolutely no one is a fan humidity. And there’s a good reason for that. When it’s hot and humid, it gets super difficult for the body to cool itself. Sweating doesn’t cool you down per se. It’s the evaporation of sweat that cools the body. If there’s high humidity sweat doesn’t easily evaporate from your skin, as the air is already is full of moisture. That means your body is unable to cool itself as effectively, pushing your body temperature higher. And you’re still sweaty. In other words, warm, humid weather can affect you as badly, or worse, than hot, dry conditions.
