With the intense heat we’ve had thus far this summer, you might think your sweaty daytime runs are giving you an even greater workout. However, they may be having the opposite effect, according to Health.com:

  • Your cells don’t handle the heat well. Research has even shown working out in extreme heat essentially cancels out any positive effect from working out
  • Sweat doesn’t evaporate as readily, so you’re more likely to overheat. In these situations, you’re not able to work out to your full potential
  • It’s just plain dangerous. Every summer, there are reports of high school football athletes passing out from the heat, or even dying. If someone who is 18 and in excellent shape can’t do it, chances are we shouldn’t, either

Who knew winter was the better workout season!
