No all of us love working out in Winter. It’s cold, miserable and you just don’t want to leave the house. These tips will make working out in Winter that little bit easier.
Never forget to stretch. If you don’t stretch your muscles before a workout you can put yourself at a higher risk of getting an injury. Especially in Winter when your joints are more tense.
When working out in Winter give your body time to adjust to the weather conditions. Jog or walk for 5 minutes before you start your workouts. And if you need too, take regular breaks to prevent harming your body.
Ease Into Things
Say you run 6 miles in Summer, start with 3 in Winter. Allow your body to adjust to the changing weather conditions before you give it your all. Slowly ease into your normal routine.
Drink. Drink. Drink.
Even though it’s Winter and you may not feel like you need it, you still need to hydrate. Do not forget to drink the recommended amount of water. Especially if you’re working out regularly.
Just because it’s Winter doesn’t mean you should abandon your goals. Keep your goals. Change them if need be. Set goals that you know are possible to complete in Winter.
The More The Merrier
Get a workout buddy. Find someone who wants to keep in shape and design workouts the both of you will love. Everything’s more fun with friends.
Try creating a new playlist. If you’ve been using the same workout playlist since Summer now might be a good time to find some new songs. And surely there’s been some workout friendly new releases!
If you’re not used to working out in Winter plan your week ahead of time. You’ll know what you have to do when and you won’t forget anything.
So there you go, there’s some tips to help you with your Winter workouts. Remember, a Summer body is made in Winter.
