Tips to transform your body this summer

– Neha Jain

Here are tips to make your summer training sessions efficient and productive, leading to sustainable gains and transforming your body.

Focus on eating a balanced diet rich in lean protein, fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats.

Prioritize nutrition

Ample fluid intake before, during and after the workout is crucial while training in summer. Opt for electrolyte-rich drinks or tender coconut water in long or sweaty sessions.

Hydrate properly

Exercising in the evening or early morning is beneficial as the temperature is lower and can help one work out more consistently. If you have AC, the afternoon works too.

Exercise when it’s cooler

Start working out slowly with low-intensity exercises for shorter durations and gradually focus on increasing the time span. This applies to all kinds of workouts, including HIIT.

Adjust workout intensity

A cool-down routine is essential to improve the range of motion and flexibility to prevent injury and enhance gains. This could include a cool shower, swimming, drinking cold beverages and deep breathing exercises.

Stay cool post-workout

Try water-related activities and exercise variations to achieve fitness goals. Stay safe during the summer and use fitness apps to track progress.
