On warm days, the worst thing you can to your body is not to drink water. Exercise physiologist Jaime Roberts explains that the body cools off through sweating. When you get dehydrated, you won’t produce sweat. That’s how health problems can arise.

About 30 minutes before you exercise, drink a glass of water. You want to start out hydrated. Throughout your workout, drink water every 15 to 20 minutes. Stay hydrated afterward; the body will continue to sweat as long as it feels warm.
