With winter upon us, it’s going to be difficult to stay fit given the low temperatures. There could be a number of ways by which you can do this be getting your snowshoes ready or even getting ready to hit the steps.
Here are 4 fitness tips to help you get ready for winter:
1: Design a customized plan for yourself
No matter what, a one-size-fits-all plan just does not work. First, you begin with a personal fitness review and then build a program that gives your body best results. For example, a ski-specific program will strengthen your glutes, core and lower back.
2: Go natural
It doesn’t matter how long you work out in the gym. Some of your body parts will not be used in a similar manner as they would be out on the slopes. One way to get natural is to incorporate kettlebells into your routine by maximizing the full range of motion that they have on offer.
3: Try something new
For starters, you need to break through your fears and grow. So, instead of working out at the usual gym, go ahead and try something new. A cross-fit class comes to mind. All you have to do is believe in yourself and take that first step.
4: Exercise in the mornings
Most people don’t like exercising in the mornings even if it is the ideal time. Unfortunately, not doing this will result in postponing the workout itself. But there are benefits to this: not only does your metabolism start up for the day, you also burn more calories throughout the day. This will make far more effective at work too.
