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!
