The warm weather is here and so many of us are taking our workouts outdoors. It is very important to stay hydrated at all times especially this time of the year. We spend more time playing golf, tennis, running, swimming, walking, etc. Even if you are not thirsty, it is necessary to drink water and/or Gatorade or a sport drink with electrolytes to replace the sodium that we lose during activity.
Avoid alcohol, especially beer during outdoor activity because it leads to nausea caused by dehydration. Dehydration can lead to heat stroke and/or death. Remember, if you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated.
Be Smart, Be Healthy, Play Safe!!!!
“Why are we using the cable station as opposed to the bands ” was the question my client asked me today. I told her there are no set rules to Strength training or Weight training. It’s important to remember that when you’re working out (in addition to cardio cross training), you should mix up your workouts.
For example, if you’re working chest and back and intend to use weights, it’s a good idea to incorporate bands and/or bodyweight exercises such as pushups.
If you only focus on one mode of resistance training, your body gets used to it. To ensure a more efficient workout, thereby training the muscles a little differently, you will see greater results and your body will thank you. Have fun with your training. The gym is your playground.
Try applying these tips to your workout and let me know how you make out. I’d love to hear from you.
