The experience of walking in winter


Here are five tips to not give up sport walking even in freezing temperatures.


Even in winter, despite the low temperatures, you cannot, rather you should not, give up sport walking.

The cold and bad weather should not be the cause for failing to workout, and to fight them we must equip ourselves with the best.

For that, here are five tips that will help to stay excited and motivated during winter training.


  1. Protect yourself from the cold with thermal insulation

To ensure that the body remains protected from the cold, you should use water repellent garments, to ensure that the body temperature remains normal, especially during high intensity phases. With water repellent clothing sweat and moisture are expelled outside of the fabric, in this way the skin perspires more and remains drier, avoiding any problems resulting from temperature changes.


  1. Keep your legs warm

To always keep them warm it is recommended to wear tights or thermal sports leggings, primarily because it adheres perfectly to the body to improve sports performance and give more of a feeling of relief to the legs by improving circulation, eliminating the feeling of fatigue and the accumulation of lactic acid. In addition, the legs remain warm thanks to the microfiber fabric, which absorbs and wicks away sweat.


  1. Recharge while walking

While training, the expenditure of calories is greater, because the body, because of the cold, needs more energy to keep warm. For that reason, it is never a good idea to fast before power walking. Always keep on hand a bottle of water as well, because dehydration is not a phenomenon that occurs only when temperatures are high.


 Choose the right shoe for walking

The first recommendation that is given is to choose a shoe that is specific for power walking. In fact, to get all the benefits your foot should rest in a precise way, so the choice should veer towards a shoe that has a sole with a lot of grooves in the tread and a heel that is a bit rounded. The upper (the upper part of a shoe) must be of water-repellent material.


  1. The body’s extremities should be well covered

You must never neglect this detail, because 60% of body heat is lost from the head, for this, in addition to shoes made with water-repellent material, you should always wear a breathable headband, technical gloves (perhaps those made specifically for running; avoid wool gloves) and breathable technical socks.
