AM I UNFIT OR IS IT JUST HOT?

AM I UNFIT OR IS IT JUST HOT?

Am I unfit or is it the hot weather that’s making me feel lethargic?

I have been hearing a lot from fitness enthusiasts about their concerns related to declined fitness level under hot conditions. As surprising as it may get, training in heat makes you fitter as long as you are doing it right. A person who trains in hot weather is expected to perform better under moderate temperature conditions. If you are working out under expert supervision, you may be asked to take certain measures and follow a strict diet plan to keep up with your fitness level, no matter how hot or humid the weather gets.

When you workout in heat, you sweat a lot and this makes your body to lose significant amount of water and sodium. Eventually, you’ll start to feel weak and your bike power and run paces will decline considerably. But, if your water and salt intake is proper, the heat will work wonders for you. If you are on a weight loss program, you will lose quickly whilst retaining your strength and stamina.

 
A smart approach with positive mindset is important when you are undergoing heat training, especially when you have never been through such training session before. Your performance level greatly depends on how quickly your body adapts to the hot and humid weather conditions and your mental state plays a significant role in this regard. If you are heading out for workout sessions, make sure you are through with it before the sun comes out and beat you down. The heat will make you feel frustrated and lethargic and you will end up questioning your fitness level rather than focusing on how to improve it. Stay hydrated throughout the session and avoid sugary products while your heat fitness session is underway.
 
If the weather is hot and you have a hard session to do, swap it with an easier aerobic session and save the harder one for the time when the weather is not so warm. This will save you from adverse effects of heat plus you will be saving your energy reserves for more complex, demanding sessions.
 
You have greater potential than you may think. Don’t let the heat take a toll on your fitness level or make you feel inferior about your performance.
