Abstract: Many cities are experiencing extremely hot weather these days. What can we do to protect ourselves if we want to exercise in such hot day? If going out, Airwheel electric walkcar will be the best choice.

Summer is a perfect time to go outside and have fun because many students are having summer vacation. Everything is more fun outside, whether you're swimming, running or cycling. But the summer heat can be a problem if you're not careful, particularly in areas with extreme heat and humidity. The biggest problems are staying hydrated and maintaining body's electrolytes and salt. When you sweat, your body loses not only water, but electrolytes and salt, too. This delicate balance of water and electrolytes is crucial to keep your body functioning properly. If you don't drink enough water, you can get dehydrated and suffer from light-headedness and nausea. If not recognized, dehydration can even result in kidney failure and or, in extreme cases, death. However, if you drink too much water without replenishing your electrolytes, you can experience hyponatremia. This can lead to confusion, nausea, muscle cramps, seizures or even death in extreme cases.

 You may not be racing in the desert, but there are some things to keep in mind when it comes to exercising in the heat:
1.Check the weather forecast before you start your workout. If there's a heat advisory, meaning high ozone and air pollution, you might want to take your workout indoors. These pollutants can damage your lungs.
2.Wear loose, light-colored. The lighter color will help reflect heat, and cotton material will help the evaporation of sweat. You may also want to try specially designed, "hi-tech" running shirts and shorts. They are often made from material meant to keep you cool.
3.Sunscreen is a must. It's important to protect your skin. You can get burned and suffer sun damage to your skin even on cloudy days.
4.Stay hydrated. Before you go out, drink a glass or two of water. Carry a bottle of water or even a hydration pack such as the CamelBak. Take a drink every 15 minutes, even when you're not thirsty. When you're done with your workout, have a few more glasses of water.  
5.Replenish your electrolyte and salt intake while exercising. You can use SUCCEED capsules--small, simple packs of sodium and electrolytes that keep system in check.
6.If you can, choose shaded trails or pathways that keep you out of the sun.
7.The time of day is important. Unless you are training for an event that takes place in the daytime heat, avoid exercising from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It's the hottest part of day. Generally, the early morning and late night are the best time to work out. You can take Airwheel R series electric assisted bike to go for a ride. When in moped mode, it saves manpower while achieving faster speed, letting you enjoy the beautiful scenery of summer morning or city nights.
8.Most importantly, listen to your body. Stop immediately if you're feeling dizzy, faint or nauseous.
