Benefits of winter fitness

1.Lose weight

Winter is very easy to accumulate fat, but the weight loss effect at this time is also very good, so we must seize the opportunity to exercise in a cold environment, the human body will consume more calories, because the body needs to consume more energy to maintain Body warm. When a warm body comes into contact with cold air or inhales cold air, the calories burned by exercise will increase slightly and the rate will increase, so that the body’s calorie consumption will increase by about 3-7%.

2. Enhance cold resistance

The cold winter weather makes many people do not like to exercise, but in fact, exercise can make the body heat, and people who exercise in winter will have better cold resistance than ordinary people. Because people exercise in a cold environment, it can improve the excitability of the cerebral cortex, and promote the coordination of various organs and systems in the body, enhance the function of the central nervous system to regulate body temperature, and balance the heat production and heat dissipation in the body, thereby making the body Adapt to cold weather.

3. Eliminate fatigue

The blood circulation of the human body will be weakened in winter. This is because the brain is not adequately supplied, and it is easy to feel tired. In winter, exercise can speed up blood circulation, increase the supply of oxygen to the brain, and enhance the elasticity of blood vessels. This can eliminate the fatigue of the brain due to long-term work, but also enhance memory, improve learning and work efficiency.

4. Enhance resistance

Everyone knows that exercise can enhance physical fitness, especially in winter when the resistance will decrease. Therefore, exercising in winter can prevent illness. As the saying goes, “Move around in winter and avoid one illness.” Most of the winter exercises are carried out outdoors. Because of the constant stimulation of cold air, the body’s hematopoietic function will change significantly, and the body’s ability to fight diseases will be enhanced.

5. Strengthen the heart

Because the cold weather in winter will cause the blood circulation to drop, which is more likely to cause heart problems. The cold weather also makes the heart load more when distributing the blood of the whole body. To combat heart problems and manage additional stress, this process may exacerbate illness or injury. But with regular exercise of cardiovascular endurance, myocardial function can be strengthened, even in such cold weather, prepare for more difficult training in the future-not to mention other non-sports stresses in life.
