Winter Workout Tips

When it comes to moving your exercise outdoors during the summer months it’s something which you look forward to. When it comes to the winter months, well, you likely choose not to do any exercise at all! If this sounds like you, below are some easy tips from Athletic Republic Parkland to follow which can help make cold outdoor workout enjoyable.

Keep an Eye on the Weather

There is one common mistake which almost all outdoor exercise enthusiasts do during the cold weather: Go out when they shouldn’t! Determined to exercise, these enthusiasts hit the streets when it’s too cold and ending up becoming ill or causing themselves an injury. This, of course, often leads to them giving up for the entire cold season. Instead, keep your eye on the weather reports and only take your workouts outdoors if it’s safe to do so.

Wear the Right Gear

While you don’t have to buy the latest and the greatest winter workout fashions, if you are heading outdoors with your exercise then it's appropriate that you wear the right gear. It’s also important to note that this may not be long sleeved shirts and running pants. If you are going running, full-length pants may increase the amount of sweat you produce and, if poorly designed, can leave this sweat on your skin where it can cause you to become ill. Conversely, if you are doing your weights training then a long sleeved garment could be a better choice than your tank-top because your sweat levels won't be too high.

Listen to Your Body

Last, but certainly, not least is a tip to listen to your body. Working out during the cold comes with a range of challenges that our body must face in addition to being pushed to its limits. For this reason, always pay attention to how you feel and recognize that you may not be able to exercise for the same length of time or at the same intensity during cold periods.
