Unless you’re a dedicated gym junkie, it’s tempting to quit the exercise regime when the mercury soars. Make working out in the heat more pleasant with fashion staples essential for a summer workout.
When temperatures soar towards 40, use your common sense and forgo your outdoor training. Hit your local swimming pool to swim laps instead. Sensible swimwear is essential to a good workout in the water. You don’t want to be stopping every 20 seconds to hitch up your bikini top or shorts, so ladies, save the bikinis for the beach and invest in a one-piece swim suit. Guys, make sure your boardies aren’t too baggy.
Protection from the sun is essential during a workout to avoid heat or sunstroke, so be sure to wear a cap or hat. With brands like Nike and Adidas providing a large range of stretch fit caps, you can continue to train in style.
- Exercise gear with wicking
Avoid feeling sticky and sweaty by investing in workout gear technologically designed to pull moisture away from your skin. Wicking fabric traps sweat and moisture in the outer layers where it evaporates, leaving you feeling as fresh as a daisy.
- Lightweight shoes
The sure-fire way to avoid blisters and stinky feet syndrome during the summer weather is invest in a pair of trainers with breathable mesh.
