How Water And A Time Change Can Ease Summer Exercise Woes

With Southern California in the throes of a record-breaking drought, trying to get the exercise you need to stay in shape cam seem even more daunting than usual.  In order to cope with the heat, it might help to change things up a little.  A new article in the Orange County Register highlights some of the ways to get exercise while still beating the heat that threatens to zap your energy every time you set out with good intentions.

One of the easiest ways to not give in to the sun is to take to the water.  Maybe your preferred exercise is running along a trail outdoors and this has proven rather difficult in the heat.  If that’s the case, bring your cardio workout regimen to a pool.  Look into the options in your area to see where Olympic-style lanes might be available.

If you’re not comfortable with your current level of swimming prowess, you can also work with a coach to perfect your form.  That way, you can be sure that you’re getting as much out of swimming as you did with running.  Plus, swimming has the added benefit of improving various arm muscles thanks to the fact that it’s not just your legs propelling you forward.

Should you have your heart set on running, biking, or some other outdoor activity, then you should harness the lengthier spans of daylight afforded by summer as well.  Because the sun is out longer now than during winter, adjusting when you work out can ensure you’re not outside when the sun is at its strongest.
