Tips for Surviving the Heat
When the weather is hot there are a few tips to getting in your
workouts and keeping your sanity..
||In extremely hot conditions
your body is more likely to retain fluid making you feel bloated and 'heavy'. Drink
extra fluids and try beginning your day with fresh lemon and water.
3 liters of pure water is the minimum for those exercising in the heat.
||20 minutes of cardio at a
consistent rate is all you need to activate the body's full fat burning potential.
If you are unable to workout at an air conditioned location remember that you may have to
cut back temporarily.
Try 20 minutes of running, cycling or power walking first thing in the morning. Do
your abdominal work, push-ups, lunges, etc. later on. Remember to drink plenty of
depletes minerals. Be extra conscious of taking supplemental minerals. This will keep
your body's biochemistry balanced.
||Try using watery fruits such as
melons, grapes and citrus to get extra fluids and nutrients.
||Limit the intake of starchy
carbohydrates such as breads, pastas, rice and baked goods during hot times as this will
just add to excess fluid retention.
