Summer Workout Tips | Popsugar Fitness
Go early, or schedule a predinner jog to stay safe and hydrated. Drink early (and often): Before a hot-weather workout, you've got to get ready to sweat. Drink 15 to 20 ounces of water an hour or two before your workout so you're not filled with liquid when you start out that can lead to uncomfortable cramps that can also put a damper on your workout. Bring along a water bottle or FuelBelt, and sip six to eight ounces of water every 15 minutes if you're sweating a lot. Protect yourself: Staying out of the sun doesn't exactly work when you've got a six-miler ahead of you. Minimize damage by always slathering on sunscreen (check out the safest sunscreen picks here ) and wearing a hat or visor as well as sunglasses that don't slip off when you move. You can also look for well-ventilated gear with UPF to further deflect those hot rays. Cool off: Speaking of gear, you should become very familiar with the word "sweat-wicking." Showing up in old, all-cotton clothes when temps are high can leave you a sopping mess just minutes into your workout.
