If the heat is getting to you, try a few of these simple tricks:
Wet a towel with cold water and putting on the back of your neck.
Wear a bandanna with water soaked on it and put it on your head. Or you can relive the 80’s and wear a wet terrycloth headband on your forehead.
Soak a t-shirt in the sink, wring it out and put it on. Sit in front of a fan. Re-wet as it dries. Use lukewarm water for this so you don’t “shock” your system with cold water.
COOL YOUR PULSE. Apply cold, wet paper towels to pulse points—wrists, behind the knees and inside elbows.
Avoid alcoholic beverages and caffeine, as both of these substances can act as diuretics and promote dehydration.
HYDRATE!!! BEFORE you get to the gym & after your workout.
