Hot summer has come to Hanoi and the sunny weather made the city boiling hot in an instant. Here some tips that can make your workouts during that time more effective and enjoyable.
🌡️ TIMING: try to move your workouts to cooler morning or evening times, try to avoid the heat during lunch times
🌡️ CLOTHES: wear light, airy, light-colored clothes
🌡️ PROTECTION: when training outside use sun screen and wear a hat
🌡️ PRE-COOL: take a cold shower or dip into the pool right before your workout, this will bring down your core temperature to a normal level before getting started and will help to longer keep your performance on a regular level
🌡️ STAY HYDRATED: drink enough water, constantly and throughout the day, and especially during workouts
🌡️ LISTEN TO YOUR BODY: if you start to feel dizzy or too tired better slow down or stop, the heat can have quite some influence on your performance, accept that you might not be able to perform on your highest level those days
Hope this will help, keep up your workouts and enjoy the sunny days, grey skies and rain might come back too soon. 🏊🏼♂️⛱️☀️
