If you exercise outdoors during the winter, give your body several extra minutes of warm-up activity. The cold weather can make your muscles tighter, which means they may need more time warming up.
* Warm up for at least 8 minutes. The colder the temperature, the longer your body needs to get warmer.
* Warming up means doing light aerobic exercise such as walking, jogging or easy cycling. Don’t confuse warming up with stretching; warming up should always come first! (Stretching cold muscles lead to muscle tears.)
