Tips for Outdoor Workouts
1. Stay hydrated
In the summer heat, it’s more important than ever to ensure you are drinking enough water and keeping yourself fully hydrated. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your workout.
2. Wear water resistant sunscreen
Protect your skin from sun damage by wearing sunscreen. Since this workout can be a little cardio heavy, and you’ll likely work up a sweat, its best to choose a sunscreen that is water/sweat resistant.
3. Use what you find around you
Whether you’re near a playground or a beach, there will always be things that you can use to make your workout as efficient as possible. For example, are you near a park bench? Use that to perform step ups and decline push-ups. Is there a swing set nearby? Place your feet on two swings to make your mountain climbers even more challenging.
4. Keep a damp towel nearby
Cool yourself off with a damp towel. If you’re working out at the beach, it’s easy to dip your towel in the water to keep it cool.
Summer is short. Don’t let your workouts get in the way of enjoying this beautiful season.
