Warm up and work out
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.
