5 Tips for a great winter workout

This winter don’t just stay indoors and shun the cold – embrace it! Follow our tips to make your winter workout easy.

 

1. Wrap up

Wearing layers is essential during a winter workout because the trapped air provides much-needed heat. When you get too warm, just remove a layer and put it back on when you get cold again.

 

2. Warm up

Make sure you properly warm up your body before venturing out into the cold because it’ll make it so much easier when you do step outside. Get your heart beating with a good warm up and you’ll be good to go.

 

3. Buddy up

It’ll really help your motivation when it’s wet and windy outside, if you have somebody to go with you. It’s much harder to just stay indoors under a blanket when someone’s waiting for you. Plus, you can give each other encouragement when the wind is making you wish you stayed in bed.

 

4. Be flexible

If you usually exercise in the mornings, you might have to switch to a lunch time workout when the air is at its warmest. It’s advisable to so the same thing if you usually go outside in the evenings because the early darkness can make it unsafe.

 

5. Change your clothes

Change out of your clothes as soon as you can after your workout. Cold, wet clothes (even just from sweat) can make you more susceptible to illness.
