In summer time, when temperatures can sometimes be pretty unbearable, all daily activities are significantly hampered.
In such conditions, exercising is unacceptable for many.
At high temperature, intense physical activity is strongly discouraged, especially if you are directly exposed to the sun.
However, if you are persistent despite the hot weather and you do not want to give up regular training, besides protecting from the sun, you must honor another key requirement in order to have no negative consequences. We are talking about carrying a bottle of water and maintain hydration.
Symptoms of severe dehydration can be nausea and headache. Dehydration can also manifest through disorientation, loss of consciousness, vomiting, blood pressure drop, and in extreme cases termination of kidney function and even death.
Also you must make sure you are not drinking too much liquid because then you might face hyponatremia, which has the following symptoms: nausea, muscle cramps, confusion and vomiting.
It is mandatory to drink water before, during exercise and after exercise. It would be good for you to drink half a liter of water two hours before you go out.
Drink water on every 15 to 20 minutes during exercising. Science says that when you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated.
It is necessary to drink water after exercise
If you measure your body weight before and after exercise, you will know how much fluid you have lost. That is the amount you should drink during exercise.
Listen to your body and as soon as you feel weak or dizzy, stop exercising.
Time of day
Do not exercise during the period of the day when it is the warmest (11 a.m. to 6 p.m.). Instead, exercise early in the morning or later in the evening.
