Exercising in the Heat

6月 15, 2017

Exercising in the HeatSummer is a terrific time for exercising out in the great outdoors, whether lounging at the beach or taking on triathlons. Fresh air, sunshine and scenery are invigorating and revitalizing. However, hot temperatures, humidity and lots of sun exposure also can bring risks, especially when you are pushing yourself and raising your core temperature during workouts. Increased core temperature and dehydration can lead to an electrolyte imbalance, which can result in heat cramps, heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Symptoms of heat exhaustion include a core body temperature of 102° to 104°F, headache, fatigue, profuse sweating, nausea and clammy skin; treatment includes cold packs, drinking fluids with sodium and rest. Heat stroke is characterized by a core body temp of 104° or more, headache, nausea, vomiting, rapid pulse and disorientation. This is a life-threatening emergency requiring immediate intervention. Stay smart and safe when exercising in the heat by being aware of the following:

  • Pay attention to the weather – This is easy now with smartphones, as you can conveniently check forecasts. Note humidity levels, which can impede sweat evaporation and your ability to keep cool.Watch for heat alerts, as well as predictions of thunderstorms.
