TREMPEALEAU, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The summer heat is ramping up this week, with highs expected to reach the mid to upper 90’s, but that won’t stop people from exercising. Health experts with Mayo Clinic Health System say while exercise is important, doing it in extreme heat can be dangerous. Working out in the morning, staying hydrated, and wearing appropriate clothing are some of the ways to prepare for the heat.

If you’re looking to cool off in the water these next few days, Mayo recommends wearing sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats to protect your skin.
