Cold Weather and Staying Warm!
As the weather gets colder and Covid gets more prominent, it is important to keep in mind that the outside workouts are not over. In fact, maybe it is time for you to take on an innovative winter sport or workout such as running outside, playing hockey outside, biking outside, or simply doing general training outside.
This comes to my mind as I personally get ready for the colder weathers to run outside and shop around for the best fabric for clothing for winter. Many people think layer up but honestly its not about the amount of layers you put on, it is about the type of layers.
Here are A few tips on what to invest in for this Winter weather:
To start, here are some fabrics to focus on when purchasing base layers for staying warm and having breathability and lightweight: Wool, Silk, Polyester, Fleece, Down, and Nylon.
Furthermore, How to Effectively Layer Your Clothing. you will simply need the right 3 layers.
1. Bottom layer: this is essential to keep you dry as to not sweat and get wet underneath you clothes. This layer you would want to be a long sleeve Merino wool, silk /or polyester.
2. Middle layer: this layer serves as an insulator to keep you warm but not overheat. You want to have a light weight here. For this, Fleece is the best layer.
3. Top layer: this final layer needs to be windproof and waterproof. this would be nylon or down with good shell.
