    How do you workout during summer?

    I finish 90 Days of Action in a couple of days and I'm planning to do 30 Days of Gravity afterward, and truth be told at the end of today's workout I could feel the blast from the heat. Then I realized that this temperature was nothing compared to the upcoming months. How do you handle your training during the summer? What kind of programs and workouts do you usually do? Thank you in advance!

    LionTheFighter excellent question. You may find our Guide To Working Out In Hot Weather to be useful here.

        The content is really useful. I have some questions though. Regarding cardio, I usually run a 5k 3 times a week, but due to summer, I'll probably shift the run to late afternoons. And about the "strength" part I have the home workouts. I guess the impact of the workout differs depending on its nature? For example, in-door cardio vs strength workouts?

          LionTheFighter if I understand your question correctly you want to know how effective an indoor cardio may be vs an outdoor one and the answer is it depends on the intensity not where you do it. The cardiovascular and aerobic systems that are engaged are the same. So if you go as hard as possible, for example, you reap the rewards even if you train in a closet. The only time the environment around you matters is if you are using it to make the workout harder. So, again as an example, if you train High Knees (a cardio exercise) near an indoor heated pool the additional humidity and temperature will make it harder than if you did the exact same workout with the same intensity outside, when a light breeze is blowing.

          I hope this helps.

            When it's really hot and the workout/exercise is hard I turn on a fan.
            Unlucky position of the floor turns it into a oven.

            And using a towel to dry the sweat otherwise it's slippery.
