Hydrate before during and after warm weather exercise. When running drink 10 to 15 oz. of water 15 minutes prior to running, and every 15 minutes during your run.

When sitting use a firm chair with a straight back, maintain an adequate lordosis (using a lumbar roll will help support your low back).

Make time for stretching in your exercise routine. A dynamic stretch before, like trunk twists or gently bouncing on your toes before activities and static stretches holding the muscles on stretch for 20 seconds, is a good plan. The stretching prepares your body for activity and helps you maintain proper range of motion.
