Sport and hydration in summer


Sport and hydration in summer

Summer is in full swing and temperatures are rising. In this season, practicing sports activities remains essential to stay in shape. But beware of heat stroke and the risk of dehydration!

What could be better than taking advantage of the long summer days to do some outdoor sports? Running, hiking, biking, team sports or even water activities are all possibilities to get moving while filling up on vitamin D.

In hot weather, our body is able to regulate its temperature, especially by sweating. It is therefore essential to maintain good hydration by drinking about 500 ml of extra water for each hour of physical activity.

Don’t forget to use a sunscreen adapted to your skin type to protect yourself from sunburn and wear a cap before going out. Finally, avoid intense exercise during the hottest hours of the day and prefer the cooler mornings or the cooler evenings.
