A Cure For Winter Blues

Short days and cold temperatures got you down? An article published on the Healthday web site suggests winter exercise as an effective way to lift your spirits. As a side benefit, you'll be well on your way to achieving a better looking beach body by the time the calendar rolls around to springtime.

The Bigger Picture: Before jumping into your winter workout program, think through the logistics of temperature and slippery surface issues. If you'll be training outdoors, dress in layers with moisture wicking non-absorbent materials close to your skin, and thicker cotton garments as outer layers. Wear a cap to keep heat from escaping through your head and stretch out indoors before heading into the cold. If training at the gym, remember that hardwood and concrete surfaces can be harder on your knees than grassy surfaces.
