Mastering your performance in hot conditions usually takes a great deal of trial and error. It’s hard to predict how your body will respond without actually putting your body to work in extreme conditions. All safety considerations aside, here are five different aspects of exercising in the heat that can help endurance athletes. 


  • Being flexible with your nutrition to incorporate more fluids
  • Having extra no salt on hand to be able to process those additional fluids as needed
  • Using strategic items such as shade or ice at 8 stations to strategically reduce your heart rate
  • Triathletes can make the most out of having sponges available on the Run course to wipe their skin and help conduct more energy out of their bodies into the atmosphere (especially in the humidity)
  • Don't stay at a steady speed all the time, take advantage of mini-breaks to get your heart rate down and recover before the next effort.
