If you live somewhere where it is hot and humid, working out in the heat outdoors can be challenging. It can even be dangerous.

You don’t want to stop training. You might not want to workout indoors in a gym or inside your home. How can you train outdoors safely in these conditions?

In this video, I discuss what all of us who like to exercise can do to work out in the heat safely. Here are a few of the ideas I explain:

• Adjust slowly to the heat.
• Wear appropriate clothing.
• Stay hydrated.
• Avoid caffeine or alcohol.
• Adjust your training sessions.
• Train with a partner.
