KEEPING YOUR COOL IN HOT WEATHER

Your muscles can generate 20 times more heat during a hard workout. You dissipate heat by sweating. Sweat evaporates and cools the skin. This in turn cools the blood which cools the inner body. Without sweating your body could overheat possibly causing death.  Use caution when exercising outside, a less intense workout may be necessary. Even in a climate controlled environment, such as a health club, you can overheat.

Well-conditioned exercisers can sweat more efficiently than others. Others may sweat less but fluid is still needed to cool the body. Take extra care to drink plenty of fluids. With increased sweating in hot weather chilled fluids with sodium such as sports drinks may be necessary.  If you are female with heavy sweating 120-360 mgs. of calcium can be lost and should be replaced with an additional cup of low fat milk. Sweat losses must be replaced with significant amounts of water. Although water is best you can include other fluids i.e. sports drinks, fruit juice, and other non-alcoholic beverages. Even high water content fruits and vegetables can be part of your fluid replacement.

The thirst mechanism may not be enough to drink adequately.   It’s important to drink before, during and after exercise to maintain a well hydrated body and avoid dehydration. It may take 8-12 hours to rehydrate after a workout.

During long hot spells, pay attention how you feel. If you feel chronically fatigued, headachy or lethargic you may be chronically dehydrated. Muscle cramps are associated with dehydration, electrolyte imbalance and muscle fatigue.
An easy way to know that you are drinking adequately is to check your urine. It should be pale yellow in color.


Enjoy exercise this summer and drink, drink, drink!
Please drink and exercise responsibly.
