CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As summer draws near, people exercising outdoors – from newcomers to top
Sumbal, the co-owner of TriMarni Coaching and Nutrition in Greenville, S.C., recommends reducing workout intensity until you adjust to the heat. She also suggests amping up your hydration, taking cold baths as part of your cooldown and soaking in Epsom salt to help muscles recover.
"We've been using Epsom salt for a long time," says Sumbal, who is widely quoted in several of the nation's top sports and health-related magazines. The list includes Shape, Women's Health, Men's Journal, Runner's World, Good Housekeeping and Women's Running.
"We really like it after very intense workouts," Sumbal says of Epsom salt, which is actually magnesium sulfate. "Your body absorbs the magnesium through your skin to help reduce inflammation. Then you can get back to training quicker."
Here are 5 of Sumbal's suggestions to train smart in hot weather:
"We really want to make sure the magnesium is absorbed, so soak for 20 to 40 minutes," Sumbal says.
If a bath isn't an option, she recommends scrubbing Epsom salt into your skin during a shower.

About Epsom salt
Epsom salt — actually magnesium sulfate — is one of the most versatile household products, with uses ranging from creating at-home spa treatments to soothing achy muscles to helping start or improve gardens. It's been used therapeutically for hundreds of years, and it's gaining a new generation of fans looking for a safe, economical alternative in a sea of expensive, over-the-counter remedies. Epsom salt is easy to use, easy to find in your local pharmacy or grocery store and it costs about the same per use as a cup of coffee.
