The transition from summer to autumn can be an excellent point to start working on your summer-ready body. It might be less convenient but starting early makes it easier to tone and trim your body for next year’s warmer weather. Experts from Peak Body have helped bring you this article on why you should start working on your summer body now, rather than waiting until spring rolls around.
It’s easiest to get motivated in during summer but you’ll overheat and dehydrate really fast, which limits how far you can push yourself. Autumn starts out hot and gets progressively cooler towards winter, so you’ll find it easier to carry out your routine with every passing day. Because of this, you’ll put yourself in a mentality of always improving and pushing further, which can carry over through winter and (hopefully) spring.
Your diet is as important as your workout, but autumn will nudge you towards hot or cooked food. This can be a good change since it stops you being tempted for colder treats like ice cream and carbonated drinks.
The slow dip in temperature throughout the season can also help you burn more fat over time. As it gets colder, your body will need to use more energy to heat itself, most of which will come from the fat you’re trying to burn off. Combine this with a strong routine and you’ll melt away excess fat far faster – this is especially effective if you do most of your routine outside or in a room without artificial heating, places where the air won’t heat up over time.
Cold air is also able to ‘shock’ you into being awake, especially during the cooler half of the season. Sticking your head out of the door for a few seconds can wake you up much faster than a cup of coffee: this means that you won’t need to drink anything that could interfere with supplements or SARMs to kick yourself awake.
Your supplement stash won’t suffer thanks to the cold either: low temperatures might make it easier to preserve them for longer and they won’t spoil or degrade like they would in the summer heat.
Being in the cold will make your muscles tighten, which can lead to them feeling sore after a workout. This can be another blessing in disguise: you’ll eventually learn to start doing warmup routines before a daily workout, which can help you burn fat faster in any weather. If you can keep your muscles flexible and loose in the cold, you’ll find it easier to avoid cramp and recovery pain during warmer weather.
