The Question:

What is the best cold weather workout?

The past couple years have been cold in Texas, which makes it that much harder to get outdoors and workout. But skipping the workout all together is even less helpful, especially when its cold.


The Answer:

Strength training boosts the afterburn effect

The most logical thought is to go on a run, right? It makes you sweat, gets you tired, makes your heart pound? But for anyone who has gone on cold weather runs, it can be extremely difficult to keep warm.

Ironically enough, strength training is much more efficient because of its added bonus called the afterburn effect. “Afterburn” is your body's ability to keep resting metabolism high which helps keep the body warm for the rest of the day.


The Extra:
