Get Your Winter Workout

Posted: Updated:

If you plan on working out in the cold, you should know these tips.   Sports Medicine Associate, Mark Johnston says dress in layers and protect your ears, hands, and feet. Johnston also says check the wind chill before you go outdoors, because anything that dips below zero degrees is pretty extreme.

"The wind can always shift directions in Montana. It doesn't always start one way, and end the other. So, you want to really limit your exposure as much as possible, especially when the Winter chill is really low," says Johnston.

Johnston adds the windchill can lower your body temperature if you don't have adequate skin coverage. He also says to run in the sunlight between 10AM to 3PM. But, if you have any medical condition like asthma or heart problems, you should check with your doctor first.
