Health Tip: Exercise in Cold Weather
Wear lots of layers
(HealthDay News) -- Before you head out into the cold to exercise, make sure you're wearing enough layers.
The American Council on Exercise offers these suggestions:
- Wear a hat to help your body retain heat.
- Wear clothing that helps trap air but pulls moisture away from the body.
- Avoid materials made of tightly woven fabrics or heavy cotton.
- Keep your hands and feet warm with gloves and socks.
