After a long, cold, snowy winter, making the most of the summer often includes spending as much time outside as possible. That is, until the mercury skyrockets through the roof and the humidity makes the air feel like soup. In addition to being uncomfortable, too-hot weather can lead to heat exhaustion, heat stroke, uncomfortable cramping, and other not-so-fun effects. Don’t miss out on an invigorating summer filled with workouts—just follow these ten tips for a good (and safe!) workout during the dog days of summer.
1. Hit the Mall
On extremely hot days, the air conditioned bliss of the gym might be exactly what you need. If you don’t have a gym membership, you can always feel the burn at home by exercising alongside fitness DVDs.
Or try creating an at-home strength training routine, or jogging up and down the stairs (try taking them two at a time!) in your home. Feel like you have to get out of the house? Hit up your local mall for a power walk.
