I just wrote an article for active.com on tips for exercising in the heat. Do you have any other tips other than the ones I mentioned. Here is the link:
Training in heat is good when used correctly.
Anything including “cleaning toxins from the body” is, in short, BS. If you want to go into heat training, say for endurance athletes, or sports athletes who play Saturday afternoons? Great to help them prepare both mentally and physically for their trials.
Just make sure they’re properly prepared nutritionally and hydrated, as well as far enough in their program their body could take the stress.
As mentioned, the link could not be found. Not knowing what your wrote, and having competed and coached in the heat of Arizona, New Mexico and the southeast, the one key consideration is adequate hydration. Frequent consumption of 2-3 ounces of fluid is critical. Also, replenishment of glucose (banana, “power bar” type foods) is especially important in long duration events.
If you get a correction on te link, let us know so we can add any additional comments.
Hi Kisar. Not sure what your article mentions since it seems that the link provided does not work, however, I wrote an article on the same subject entitled “Don’t Let the Heat Get You Down” appearing in Tennis Life Magazine (I can’t provide a link since this was in a publication for sale, but would be happy to provide the key ideas to anyone who may be interested – please shoot me an email). Thanks.
