Exercise with Caution Through the Dog Days of Summer

“I am a major proponent of exercise but this is the time of year when I say be careful where and when you exercise. This is not the time of year that you want to go out in the middle of the day and push yourself to extremes. Depending on temperature, I recommend early morning or early evening. It tends to be cooler and there is usually not as great of an impact of the sun. But even if you use your head and limit your exposure it is still very important that you take in your fluids and make certain that you are well hydrated. It all comes down to common sense. Be aware of your environment and if you belong to an air conditioned health club. Take advantage of it.”
