How to Exercise Safely in the Heat

Exercising in the heat will increase your rate of perspiration, so be careful to drink plenty of water.

During the long cold winter season, our bodies practically ache with the desire to move around outdoors in nice temperatures, unencumbered by heavy clothing, gloves and boots.  But when the dog days of summer arrive, we need to be prepared because exercising in the heat can be risky. 

Our bodies regulate heat by releasing sweat which allows us to cool down. And, when the body is sweating, it’s losing fluid. If your body can no longer cool itself down, it starts storing heat inside resulting in a rise to your core temperature, putting your internal organs and central nervous system at risk.  Continue reading How to Exercise Safely in the Heat
