Beat the Heat tips

1. Stay Hydrated.

2. Avoid the hottest times of the day. If you have the option to choose when you exercise avoid the early afternoon (2pm-4pm), which tends to be the hottest time of the day.

3. Wear appropriate clothing. Avoid cotton t-shirts that can trap heat close to your body and opt for lightweight moisture-wicking clothing designed to help promote sweat evaporation. Also, wear a hat if possible to keep the hot sun off your face.

4. Listen to your body. Be aware of your body throughout your practice. Take note if you begin to feel any heat exhaustion symptoms and don’t be afraid to take a break.
