It’s Still Hot in August

It’s Still Hot in August

It’s time for football! Many Americans have been waiting since February for it to return but it’s still hot outside! Athletes are training as we speak and getting ready for week one. Here are three ideas to fight the heat.

Idea 1: HYDRATION!

One of the most important things our body needs is water. Our body uses sweat to keep us cool but we need to replenish that water. Our body uses over a liter an hour of water to stay cool. If athletes don’t stay hydrated they won’t perform well and will struggle to stay cool.

Idea 2: Turning up the Heat!

Yeah, you heard me right. Professional athletes use high temp workouts to get used to the weather. This doesn’t sound fun at all but on the field, you can be ready for any temperature. A word of caution though, know your limits and don’t overpush yourself.

Idea 3: Use cooling equipment

This is my favorite idea because with all the football equipment on its hard for your body to keep you cool. You can feel like your in a furnace. BluSol Heat Shield Inserts are there to help. From your football cleats to your helmet, it will get hot. BluSol Heat Shield Inserts are used by athletes everywhere and perform better with these insets.

From Monday Night, Friday Night, and Saturday games be the best athlete you can be and be comfortable doing it. Remember to fight the heat and let’s play some football!

How to Become a Better Athlete

Everyone who plays sports can relate to the feeling of always wanting to improve. Whether it is important physically or mentally, it can be challenging at time. Here at 3 simple steps to help you become a better athlete. 

Step 1: Train with people who challenge you. 

Training with people who challenge you both physically and mentally helps you grow and reach your goals faster. Find someone to train with that is not afraid to push you to your limits. Try avoiding training with people who give up easily or don’t push themselves.  Bart Brooks once said, “If you’re not being challenged, you’re not getting any better.” 

Step 2: Find comfortable gear to train and play in. 

Every athlete knows that find good gear is extremely important when trying to play your best game. Find clothing that is not only comfortable but also beneficial to your game. Blusol Heat Sheild shoe inserts, for example, keep the player’s feet cool throughout the game, so they can play their best and stay comfortable throughout the whole game. Find clothing that is breathable. Shirts, shorts, and socks that allow air to flow will also help you feel comfortable and play at your peak performance. 

Step 3: Learn from your loses 

If every game there is a winner and a loser. But like Ascertain Solo said, “Every winner, once a loser.” Learn from your loses. What could you have done better in that game? How can you help your team or yourself improve for the next game? If you learn from your lost games and never give up, you are in fact a winner. 

If you follow these three steps, you are sure to become a better athlete. Just make sure to never give up, always try harder, and find ways to improve not only your game but your teams game.
