Most people know they should use sunscreen to protect themselves from the sun's harmful rays. Unfortunately, few are fully aware of how to properly use sunscreen. This is particularly true of athletes who train and compete in the sun throughout the summer.

If you're spending long hours in the heat this summer, sunscreen could become your most important piece of training equipment. Check out the graphic below to learn how to select the right SPF, understand application and find out how different conditions impact the need to use and reapply sunscreen. Don't find yourself sunburned on the sideline this summer because you failed to educate yourself on how to properly use sunscreen.

After learning how to use sunscreen, hit the practice field with STACK's 2012 Summer Training Guide.
