With much of the U.S. facing frigid temperatures in the upcoming days and weeks we wanted to remind you to dress in layers for outdoor exercise. Be mindful of extreme temperatures and windchill factors before you decide to head out. You can always change things up with some great indoor exercise. But if you DO head out remember these three layers:
1. Closest to your skin choose a lightweight synthetic or polyester fabric for it’s quick drying capabilities and to wick sweat away from your skin.
2. Make the second layer a warming wool or fleece.
3. Your outer layer needs to be wind and water repellant.
(Be sure you avoid heavy cotton next to your skin as it sops up sweat and will make you wetter and colder.)
