1. Talk with your doctor.
Ask about using an inhaled bronchodilator about 10 minutes prior to hitting the gym. Also, be sure to work closely with your doctor to determine a workout plan that’s best for you. Communication is key.
2. Start off slow.
If you can’t do 30 minutes right away, that’s fine. It’s all about gradually working your way up to that. So, try adding five minutes to your routine every week instead of cramming in 30 minutes all on the first day. Also, don’t forget to spend at least five to 10 minutes warming up first.
3. Plan ahead.
If you know it’s going to be cold outside, layer up and be sure to cover your nose and mouth. And when allergy season rolls around, stay indoors. Feeling under the weather? Limit or avoid exercising altogether.
