Summer is finally here! Tis’ the season of sun (and scrunch-butt bikinis!). The beautiful sunshine has us shedding layers to get out with friends and in the water. Are you ready for a workout that will start your fun-in-the-sun with a little fitness to lift that booty? Before we get into the tightening and toning workout you’ve been waiting for, here’s a short reminder of how to stay safe exercising when in the sun.
When the body is perspiring, we are actively losing fluids. Staying hydrated can mean the difference between a great workout and a trip to the Emergency Room. Make sure you drink at least 20 ounces of water at least two hours before you go out in the heat and at least eight ounces of water shortly before you workout. While you’re outside, be sure to sip your water every 15 to 20 minutes. Replacing electrolytes and minerals into your body after you’ve perspired is also very important. Supplementing with the SunWarrior Immune Shield is my favourite way to replace lost electrolytes and minerals naturally and quickly. This complex serves as a catalyst and chelator that delivers trace minerals, various nutrients, and electrolytes freely to the body’s cells. Finally, to keep your water intake interesting, try adding sliced lemon, organic cucumber or fresh mint leaves for a refreshing new flavour.
