Yes, it’s summer time, but as an athlete, you can’t slack off as last minute conditioning for fall sports could result in serious sports injuries. So keep training throughout the summer and don’t forget to keep drinking fluids to stay hydrated, avoid peak sun to prevent heat exhaustion or heat stroke, eat balanced meals, warm up before your workout and cool down after each, and most importantly, pace yourself! Enjoy your summer!
