The clutches of winter seems to have an impact on everyone. You don’t feel like going for a workout session because it is too cold outside. But why skip your workout sessions because the winter doesn’t want to agree with you? It is time to get prepared and walk out the doors. How? By wearing the right activewear!
Here is given two distinct weather conditions and how you can dress for them respectively.
- Setting 1: 30 F (-1 C) with clear sky and light wind; at dawn
These weather conditions make a great outdoor workout setting. Ideal for going on a run, you might want to take extra protection against the cold. Start early morning as the sun rises for it will be warm and comfortable.
Start the base layer by picking a long sleeve t-shirt made of polyester for that will pull away from the sweat from your skin, keeping you dry throughout. A light jacket worn on top will further keep you snug and ward off the wind. Wear one that comes with a zipper so that you can adjust it according to your comfort. As for the bottom, pick a pair of tights that is constructed using a blend of spandex and polyester. Each has its own functional qualities and will ensure to keep you at ease for the length of the session. Make sure that the pair stretches allowing you to move your limbs without any restriction.
Accessories should include gloves, winter cap (covering the ears), socks and proper workout shoes. Don’t forget to carry a bottle of water. Also, opt for subtle colours because you don’t want to be a distraction to the others early in the day. Basic shades of black, navy and grey will do you justice.
- Setting 2: 25 F (-4 C) snowing with light wind; at dusk
This might seem like a setting tad bit difficult, but not enough to fan an excuse for missing your workout session. You might want to sweat it indoors, however, for fresh air and to challenge yourself; you can go for a walk or a run accordingly. Even if you are walking to the gym, make sure you have the right pieces to wear.
Again, wear a long sleeve t-shirt inside that is crafted using polyester. Once you start working out, your body will produce sweat (inside or outside doesn’t matter!), but it will. And if you don’t take the right precaution, it might make you feel all clammy and cold. Polyester is great for wicking moisture so that remains the basic choice. Since it is all dark and cold outside, you would want to take extra protection. Wear a heavy jacket with warm padding for this will keep you comfortable. The right choice here would be a parka. Pick a pair of tights made from a blend of polyester for it will trap the heat inside.
The accessories remain the same- gloves, winter cap, socks and your workout shoes.
