For many, summer is the best time to put on sneakers and engage in physical activity. If the desire to do exercises and start running is high, even the temperatures are no joke, especially in the middle of the day.
Here is a 3-point guide to doing outdoor activities correctly in the summer
BETTER THE MORNING SOON OR THE EVENING-
The best moments for training are between the early morning and late afternoon hours. Whenever possible, choose the evening for greater oxygenation caused by an improvement in atmospheric conditions (in principle)
RESTORE IN THE RIGHT WAY-
Don’t wait for thirst to tell you when to drink
Remember that when we are thirsty, we are already dehydrated at 1-2%. It is advisable to drink at least 2 litres of water a day, and, if you are not exercising, you should drink every 10 or 20 minutes to replenish lost fluids. Even while swimming or doing water activities you sweat, it is, therefore, advisable to leave a bottle of water on the beach or at the edge of the pool.
HEALTHY POST TRAINING –
At the end of the training, then, for a quick recovery, it is important to rehydrate and ingest carbohydrates. Food and drinks containing sodium contribute to rapid and complete rehydration. By dividing your body weight by two, you get the number of grams of carbohydrates to be consumed within the first hour after the end of the sports activity.
