How Does Heat or Cold Weather Affect Your Workouts?

When it comes to working out, the weather can be a major factor in how successful your workout is. Whether it’s too hot or too cold outside, extreme temperatures can make exercising more difficult and less enjoyable.

Exercising in the heat can put an extra strain on our bodies as we attempt to keep up with our regular routine. The body has to work harder when it’s warm outside because of increased sweat production and higher heart rate due to elevated body temperature. Sweating causes us to lose fluids faster which leads us feeling dehydrated quicker than usual - this is why drinking plenty of water before, during and after exercise is so important! Additionally, exercising outdoors on sunny days increases exposure UV rays that may cause sunburn if you don't take proper precautions like wearing sunscreen or protective clothing while working out.

On the other hand, when temperatures drop below freezing levels outdoor workouts become increasingly uncomfortable due to wind chill factors that make already chilly air feel much colder than what thermometers show – not ideal for those who are looking forward a nice jog around their neighborhood park! Colder climates also increase risk of hypothermia if you're exposed for long periods without adequate protection from winter elements like snow and ice; even though there's no direct contact between skin/clothing layers frostbite remains a serious threat especially among athletes who spend extended time outdoors practicing their sport (e..g runners).

Overall both extremely hot & cold conditions present challenges for anyone trying stay active throughout year but by taking necessary safety measures such as staying hydrated & dressed appropriately one should still be able enjoy healthy lifestyle regardless weather forecast predicts.
