Practicing sport on summer

deporte_verano

Summer and good weather have arrived at last, and when it’s warm practicing outdoor sports is very pleasant.

But with the raise of the temperatures, we have to think on some different aspects when it is time to practice our passions. Important details that puts security among other aspects, so we keep sports being a diversion, not an issue!

Time of the day

During the day, the hours between 12 in the morning and 16 in the afternoon is when it’s more hot, and should be avoided for realizing any kind of sport. 

Looking for the better training conditions

Sometimes we don’t have a choice, so we will have to reduce the intensity of the exercise to the minimum, in order to avoid a heatstroke, unfortunately a problem that happens too often on summer, and sometimes with a fatal outcome.

Two factors to keep in mind: solar protection and hydration

It is highly recommended to use solar protection when you practice outdoor sport, specially on hours of more solar activity, but it is a good advice to use it all day.

Hydration is a fundamental factor, not only on the summer, but during all year during exercising. But on summer, with the high temperatures, your body do sweat more, in order to control body temperature, increasing the evaporation of water. Our advice is to hydrate several times using small quantity of liquid during exercise.

But for a good hydration you should take care of it before and after sport. To get a good performance of your body, without negative effects, there are products on the market, or receipts you can prepare at home, isotonic drinks that help your body to recover mineral salts and other needed substances, that we loose during exercise.

Finally, to reduce effects on your performance, your equipment is very important. You should wear breathable clothing which do not absorb sweat, so you avoid colds. Use clothing with light colors, so you don’t absorb too many sun rays, and avoid overheating.

And above all, enjoy summer and sport!
