TRAINING OUTDOORS THIS WINTER โ„๏ธ

Updated: Nov 21, 2020

Let's face it - it's tough to find the motivation to get out and exercise especially when it's cold outside. While weekend sunshine is appreciated, it doesn't do much to warm up our wintry surroundings. But before you decide against putting your trainers on and heading out the door, it may be worth giving the idea of a winter workout a second thought.


Take a look at some of the ๐๐ข๐  ๐๐ž๐ง๐ž๐Ÿ๐ข๐ญ๐ฌ when training in the cold!

As a regular exerciser with cardiovascular endurance, you can help make your heart muscle even stronger and preparing the body for more strenuous workouts in the future.

Drinking water before, during, and after cold-weather workouts helps to maintain peak performance, protect the body from injury, and stay warm from start to finish. Don't wait to feel thirsty to hydrate!

Pay particular attention to the amount of effort you're putting forth rather than hitting a certain time, distance or other performance goals, and try to just enjoy the process.

As the body works harder to stay warm, the amount of endorphins produced also increases, leaving you with a stronger sense of happiness and lightness following a workout in the cold.
