For some of you, summer’s all about taking it easy, kickin’ back, sippin’ a lil’ sumpin’ sumpin’, and generally lazing the days away. And that’s all well and good, but all y’all can stop reading from here on in because this blog may not be for you.
This blog is dedicated to the high-energy, nonstop, go-get-em types — you know who you are. We’re talking about those who’d rather kick butt than kick back, who are more Muay Thai and less Mai Tai, those who only know how to ‘chill’ when they’re downhill skiing. (Be honest, you’re probably doing butt clenches as you read this).
You don’t want to spend the sweaty summer months sleeping… you’d rather spend them, well, sweating! So we’re here to help you do just that. Without further ado, here are our indoor and outdoor tips for your perfect summer exercise routine!
Beat the Heat Outdoors
Summer’s all about appreciating the gorgeous warm weather. But depending on where you live, when noon comes around, it might just be too hot to get a good workout in. So here are some tips to keep cool during your workouts as you turn up the heat..
Early Morning Run
Get up before the sun does and you’ll have a nice long cool morning to get your run on. Even on sweltering days, when you can still see stars in the sky, you’ll probably have perfect running temperature. Also, waking up and hitting the streets early means less crowds and traffic.
The late afternoon is a wonderful time to hit the trails for a nice long hike. The weather will have cooled down, and you’ll be able to breathe fresh air and commune with nature while you get your steps in. Plus, take your partner along with you for a romantic evening activity.HUNDREDS OF BODY-SCULPTING CLASSES | Sign up for your 7-day free trial now!
If you only have time to exercise in the middle of the day (busy morning, hectic evening, long lunch), a great way to soak up some sun, burn some calories, and stay cool is to simply hop in a pool! Swimming is one of the best total-body workouts there is and a sweet way to get out of the scorching temperatures.
HIIT the Park
Ok what if you wanna exercise outside, but can only do it during the hottest hours of the day? No problemo, just work harder in less time with a powerhouse HIIT routine! High-Intensity Interval Training pushes your body to the max, so you can burn tons of calories in much less time than a traditional workout. Just be sure to have a bottle of water nearby and stay hydrated.
