Posted 10 years ago

When you’re feeling cold, the body sheds blood away from the extremities to warm your core naturally. People with lower body fat like triathletes, are more prone to cold but warming up before heading outside could get the blood flow back to the extremities.

Here are some tips on keeping warm while doing outdoor activities:

– To stay warm when bike training, weal full-length tights, gloves and compression socks. As temperature drops, make sure to cover your face and your neck.
