Winter sports... What are its origins?
Regular exercise makes a person feel more energetic, and the body's defenses will also benefit; And when the mood takes a hit in winter, exercise can improve it and give you a sense of well-being.
And because we tend to eat more during the cold winter months, exercise will help us better control weight and maintain body shape.
What are the origins of exercise in the winter?
Choose what sport you enjoy:
It is best to choose an activity that you find fun. And winter time may be an opportunity to do new exercises that take place indoors, and we mention here, for example:
Rolling the ball on the ice.
Football with five players.
There is no need to stop exercising outside the home; If you have fun running, the cold weather shouldn't hold you back.
You can also take a long walk on the weekends, or ride a bicycle; All you have to do is wear warm clothes, and be careful if the weather is raining or cold.
When you don't like going out in windy, rainy or snowy weather, you can use a fitness video tape and try some of these exercises at home.
Warm up or warm up before exercise:
When you want to start a new exercise regime, you shouldn't stress yourself out. You should gradually increase the amount of exercise you do. And if you can't do 30 minutes of exercise at once, you can divide it into three batches, each of ten minutes.
Always warm up for up to ten minutes before you start exercising. You can take a brisk walk or run to warm up the muscles.
It is preferable to make sure that you are warm before you go out of the house, and to wear several layers of clothing to trap body heat. Since a large amount of body heat goes out through the head, you should also wear a hat over your head.
- Maintaining safety:
If you want to exercise after dark, you should light the area well, and wear shiny, reflective clothing. It is best to go out with a friend to exercise, and you should always tell someone where you are going.
When rain or snow makes exercise dangerous, it can be postponed to another day; The weather may be better the next day, and the injury, if it occurs, can take weeks to heal.
When you have a cold:
Colds often occur in the winter, but you should not refrain from exercising if you feel that you are unwell, as you can use wisdom and be aware of the state of your health in which your body is; If your symptoms are not severe, and you generally feel fine, then you can exercise. If you feel tired, it is best not to exercise.
However, it is essential not to exercise if you have a fever (ie when the body temperature is 38°C or higher); Fever is rarely a symptom of the common cold. If you exercise and have a fever, it will make your condition worse. Exercising with a fever can - in very rare cases - cause the heart to become infected with the virus, a condition that can be dangerous.
If you have asthma, you should take extra care when exercising in the winter, because cold air can trigger symptoms.
