Take Your Workout Outside!

The Dos and Donts of exercising outside in the summer!

DO wear sunblock of SPF 30 to 75, even on cloudy days. Use broad-spectrum sunblock with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide for ultimate protection. Reapply often, especially after sweating or exposure to water.

DO wear UV protective or polarized sunglasses when running, hiking or cycling to prevent corneal burn.

DON’T exercise during the hottest part of the day, between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., if at all possible.

DO carry water at all times and hydrate frequently.

DON’T continue to exercise if you feel faint, dizzy or are sweating profusely. These are signs of heat stroke and should be attended to immediately.
