Warm up and work out

When it's cold, your muscles can get extra tight which makes exercise uncomfortable and leaves you more susceptible to injuries. In the warmer months, you may be able to get away with shorter warm ups but, when it's cold, you may find you need a little extra time to get the blood flowing.

Here are three of rosie’s tips for better exercise in winter.

  •  Try dynamic warm ups. Don't waste time with static stretches but, instead, focus on doing activities to get your body ready for the coming workout. If you're walking, start with a brisk walk and stay at that pace until you start to feel warmer. Gradually increase your pace and give your body extra time to get the blood flowing.
  • Get warm before you head out. If you're exercising outside, try warming up inside before heading out the door.
  • Take a hot shower. If it's really cold outside or you just need something more to wake up, take a quick, hot shower to get warm before your workout.
