Exercising in cold weather can feel great, but it is important to take adequate care.Here are a few tips to protect yourself against the cold.
Always wear layers of clothing to keep warm.
For the layer next to skin, pick a moisture-wicker cloth that helps your skin to keep dry.This becomes especially important if you are going to engage in an activity that involves a lot of perspiration.
And remember â€“ cover your hands and head adequately!
MEMBERS! Don't forget to take any arthritis medicine after working out.
Heres my logic, which hopefully serves purpose to you:
1. Stretch before exercise until you feel your body is limber and ready to take on amount of said exercise...
2. Complete exercise. Pace yourself. The usual...
3. Take medicine within 5-10 minutes of finishing exercise. Right after you're done, your muscles will be in shock and be reacting to the cold. With arthritis, it doesn't provide a pleasant mix.
I have arthritis in my right leg and ankles so I hope this helps.
