It doesn't take any effort at all to work up a sweat in hot summer temperatures, but when is it too hot to exercise outdoors?
The answer may depend on where you are and what you are doing.
Some residents at Calf Pasture Beach Monday night said the breeze helped them cool off. They said the beach is much more comfortable than just a short drive inland.
Some volleyball players at the beach said they will play no matter how hot it is due to that sea breeze. They did admit though to having less energy due to the humidity.
Drinking water ahead of and throughout a day full of exercises or any outdoor activities is also adviseable.
Lou Getzelman, owner of the gym F45 Training in South Norwalk, recommends drinking eight bottles of eight ounces of water.
Geltzman also recommends stretching ahead of exercising and getting acclimated to the weather. When exercising in groups, he advises to check on other participants to make sure they're breathing properly and not disoriented.
