Summer is already here and we hope you know how important it is to avoid crash dieting and extreme workouts in order to get in shape! The faster you try to lose the weight, the faster it will come right back. So don’t wait, start today and work hard to get that fit body!
One needs to take care while working out in summer because exercising vigorously during this season can cause heat stress, strokes, nausea, headache and more importantly, dehydration. Here are a few things that one needs to remember while working out in summer.
Keep yourself hydrated at all times: Make sure you take a bottle of water with you whenever you work out.
Wear loose, light-coloured clothes: Light coloured clothes reflect off the heat and wearing cotton clothes aids in the absorption of sweat better. This is especially useful for people who workout outdoors.
Stretch it out: Warm-ups exist for a reason. Although you may feel your muscles are already warm enough, don’t skip the stretches. Stretches help metabolise blood sugar, which thereby reduces fat storage and improves coordination.
Start out with five to 10 minutes of walking or jogging to get warmed up.
There are a few ranges you can work with.
Beginners may want to start with less and the more advanced fitness folks can use the upper range. You can do two sets of 10 (beginners) to 50 (advanced) of each exercise.
Go through the list and do each exercise one time with 10 jumping jacks in between. Then do the circuit again.
Here’s the list!
Pull-ups (regular or modified)
Ps – If you’re really serious about losing weight and getting in shape, you absolutely have to clean up your diet and take time for recovery! It’s simply not healthy to work out for hours and only focus on calories burned. You must also start incorporating more quality, unprocessed foods into your diet, stay hydrated, and get enough sleep!
