Set a specific time: Exercise during the morning hours or in the evening when the temperatures are low, or attend an air conditioned gym to avoid feeling extremely hot when you’re working out.

Eating
Ensure you take a light meal to have energy during the exercise such as a toast with peanut butter and a yogurt. Taking heavy meal just before the exercise can intervene with your digestion. Rest for about an hour after the work out and take a well-balanced diet to refuel your body. Take lots of water throughout the day.

Resting is very important. Have frequent rest during your exercise and also take a day break from a long week of exercising.

Wear reflectors if you’re running along the highway in the early morning or in the evening for drivers to see you. This also should be ensured when cycling. Also ensure you put on your helmet and grooves when necessary. Protect your elbow and knees too by wearing the best Elbow Compression Sleeve and knees sleeves respectively.

Dress appropriately in a comfortable gym wear and comfortable flat shoes too. By not doing so you may fall and get injuries or hurt your feet with blisters.
