Exercise / Fitness

If you’re going to be exercising outdoors this winter, pay particular attention to your hands and feet, which may be vulnerable to colder temperatures. To prevent frost bite, consider buying a pair of athletic shoes a half size to a size bigger, so you can wear heavy wool or thermal socks. You may also want to layer up on the gloves. Purchase a thinner pair made of moisture-wicking technology, like polypropylene, and wear these inside of thicker gloves or mittens, which you can remove if you start to sweat. For additional assistance with a workout regimen or injury prevention, consult the experts at Atlantic Sports Health >
