DAWNLOGA: That is excellent philosophy and smart advice. I decided to do a 180〫 , though, and take a faster (for me) walk in the 97〫 F heat. I have long loved to soak in hot bath water, sit in hot tubs, and take saunas, so I decided to lather myself with sunblock, put on my safari hat, and enjoy the heat. I drank two glasses of water before I left (65 minutes) and 2 when I got back. I don't do this very often, because I don't think it is particularly healthy.

I don't exercise when it's extrememly hot and humid. I have diabetes and tend to get light-headed when I get too hot. I work during the day, and if not too hot I walk about 1 mile on my break, and a couple 2 or 3 at night, and I also bike about 30 mmiles per week. But not this week or last week. Temps in the upper 90's, heat advisories. At 7 am it was 80 already.

If I have to keep the extra 10-15 lbs on a little longer due to the heat, so be it. When it gets back into the 70's and 80's, I'll get back out.

Here it is August 27 ... and the high is suppose to be 98〫 today.

I will probably save my main walk for around 6:00 p.m. and should still be plenty warm.

Woke up early, so decided to take a morning walk (7:00 a.m.) for a change. Got in 72 minutes. Although it was already 73〫 F, there was a nice breeze, so it felt much cooler.

Decided to walk in the 91〫 F heat from 5:00 p.m. to 6:10. Felt good to sweat a bit, but the AC felt like the North Pole when I got back home.

I actually like walking in high heat and humidity; but I don't want to encourage skin cancer, so I generally walk late afternoon. Occasionally, I walk early morning. If it were not for the need to paint myself in sun block if I wanted to walk in the hot sun, I would definitely choose noon to early afternoon to walk. Otherwise, other than chores like mowing and washing the car, all my exercising is indoors, down in the basement.

I'm out here in the desert with AMYPOB, and I have to say, the best way to avoid heat stress is to exercise indoors in a climate-controlled environment. I also find it more exhilarating and I have more endurance when the air is cooler. Some folks seem to enjoy the heat and excel in that environment as well, but in the end, it comes down to you knowing your body and what it will withstand.

I swim and exercise indoors. Very early morning walks are ok, but I did have a heat exhaustion episode a couple of years ago and will avoid that at all costs.

Being a runner in the Arizona summer - especially monsoon season - is challenging. Of course I start really early and hydrate as I go. Also, I have switched to coconut water for right after the run. Yesterday I was pressed for time and just went out for a quick 2 miles, came back and hit the shower, forgetting the coconut water. I don't know if that was the reason, but last night I was awakened twice with the worst leg cramps! I haven't had any leg cramps since my last pregnancy - 16 years ago. Anyone else suffer with leg cramps in the summer? emoticon

I work out at gyms so the AC is on...although sometimes there are so many people in there that the body heat makes it hot even with the AC. I just keep hydrated. :)

Drink lots of water, before and after! Also stretch a lot more, dehydration can lead to cramps so get the water in there and the stretches! Also eat your potassium to help with the cramping that could occur. Take it easy!

Typically, I am NOT a fan of the heat and don't like to sweat unless I'm exercising. Lately, I've been reading up on the splendiferous benefits of the morning sun (in small amounts of course). Today, I decided to do my Tae Bo and Yoga workout out on our deck. Absolutely, LOVED IT! Feeling and breathing the fresh air as I worked out was amazingly refreshing and energizing. I felt stronger and more energetic. Definitely, looking forward to loosing those 10-15 I'm shooting for and more definition.

When you recognize and feel the value of exercise
hot or cold you work towards that feeling

Carve out what is most important to you first, then allocate your day to others! I promise you and they will be better for this decision!!

early morning for me most days and drink lots of water too.............


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

You said it "Take it Easy". Extreme hot temps can cause a heart to give out at any age... I do have a/c, so I use my stationary bike or threadmill. But if I did not have a/c, I would just take it easy..

During the intense summer heat I usually try to workout either early morning or later on in the evening when it is a little cooler than mid-day, but sometimes it is hard to avoid the heat. Just listen to your body if working out outside anytime so you don't have heat exhaustion which is no fun at all. Or are there gyms closeby you can do a month to month membership to workout indoors during this time of year? The rain doesn't help either, but my running group usually runs in the rain as long as there is no thunder or lightning, it can actually feel pretty good.

I don't mind doing interval walking/jogging in the heat (90's by the time I get home from work), but the problem is the late thunderstorms. That keeps me inside and I don't get as good a workout. I also would add about taking the dogs out running in the heat . . . be careful, take water for them to drink. Also, if you're running on concrete or asphalt their pads can get burnt - imagine walking barefoot on the sidewalk in 90 degree weather.

Blessings,
Nancy

Sharipam,

Temperature makes virtually no difference to the calories that are burned. It is ACTIVITY that burns calories, not sweating.

You are right to be concerned about your dog in those conditions. Humans are almost unique in their ability to keep cool through sweating (horses are about the only other animal that does), and thus can exercise for long periods of time.

Dogs however pant to keep cool (passing air over their tongues results in evaportation and cooling), but they can't really breath deeply for oxygen, and pant at the same time, so they switch back and forth - hence the huffing and puffing.

You may need to stop regularly (in the shade) to allow him to pant to cool down, splash some water on him or allow him to go for a dip in a stream or the like when the opportunity presents itself.

M@L

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

I live in the desert so in the summer if its later than 9am and through to 730pm most people stay indoors. I exercise in the morning usually and I have a treadmill & elliptical to use indoors when I want to. I have air conditioning it works wonders :)~

"If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so. Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay."

I went to do cardio/weights in a non-air-conditioned gym a couple of weeks ago when it was 97 degrees out. On the plus side, it was not crowded that night!

My favorite thing when it is that hot is to go hiking and swimming in/around our local rivers which are very cold and refreshing.

It is supposed to be 92 degrees here today. I swam early this morning (indoors) and am going dancing tonight. No excuses!

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I take my dog for a walk around 4:30 a.m. almost every morning, but even this morning it was so hot, I wasn't sure how far we should go! We did our usual 2 km, but he was huffing and puffing before we finished 1 km. With this heat, does it mean you burn more calories? You certainly sweat more! May be a stupid question, but I thought I would ask.

They make hot/cool packs where you can either heat it in the microwave for a heating pad or stick it in the freezer for a cold pack. The one I have stays flexible when frozen because the core is ceramic. Try one of those (frozen) around your neck when you walk. Your wrists and neck are where the blood runs closest to the surface so if you can keep something cold there, that will help you stay cool in the heat.

I get up early and do my workout outside. It's way too hot where I live to even do my workout inside when I'm home from work. The AC can't catch up with the heat outside! Is there a near by pool around you that you could jump into and do some water resistance workouts or swimming there?

Thank you for all your help....unfortunately, I live in a very rural area where there are no malls...(closest mall is 45 minutes away), and there is no gym that is close to me. There is a campground next to us and that is where I walk. I usually wait until 7:30 or later to walk..so the sun is not so intense. I usually walk 20-30 minutes but with the heat this week, I think I will do short walks, maybe 10-15. I do have a doctors appointment tomorrow...my three month one, so I will talk to her about this subject. I go ever three months since being diagnosed as a Type 2 Diabetic.

So thank you again for the help....it is very much appreciated. I am heading out now to walk...since the sun is going down and not as intense.

I get up at 5:15 a.m. and am out walking at 5:30. It's cooler and more peaceful then and I love it.

I wait until evening to take walks.
I do my Walk Away the Pounds video (with fans on HIGH).
I go to the gym where it is air-conditioned.

I know a lot of people walk the malls. I could see myself doing that someday.

When it is really hot, I walk in air conditioned areas - the building where I work over my lunch hour and breaks, this past Saturday, I did some mall walking. I've even done some extra walking around Wal-mart when I am doing my grocery shopping.

Oh Stephanie, I feel your pain since I live in AZ and we will hit 111 today. If jogging is my idea for the day, I get up ridiculously early to beat the strong sun and massive heat----still 90 out, but the lack of sun helps.

Lately I have gone to my boxing gym and have done nothing outside because it kicks my butt and I honestly do not get in a good workout!

I get up early. It takes awhile for it to become routine, but this morning I left the house at 5:45 am for a 45-minute walk. A lot of people are watering their lawns at this hour and as I walked through the neighborhood I was passing through little cool micro-climates. The sun was not quite up over the horizon. It's a nice way to start the day.

Position yourself directly in front of the fans, splash some water over yourself so that you don't have to wait to start sweating before getting the evaporative effects, aim at intense 10 minute workouts rather than longer workouts. Focus on strength training rather than cardio on very hot days.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

What to do when it is too hot to exercise...like this week with a heat wave...90 or better? And you do not have an AC in the house? Just lots of fans to keep you cool? I have been walking when it has cooled down a bit after the sun starts to go down...around 7:30ish....

I know take it easy and drink lots of fluids...but what do you all do when it is so hot and all?
