Keep Hydrated During Cold Weather Training With Osmo
Cold Weather Dehydration is Real
Training never stops, even in the winter, but extra vigilance is required during cold weather exercise. Though you may not realize it, your body loses a significant amount of water in the cold, especially during exertion. First, winter clothing tends to be bulky and can make the body work up to 40 percent harder than usual, increasing sweat losses. Pair that with an increased metabolic rate (our body’s mechanism for keeping us warm), and your body’s internal temperature will rise signaling evaporative cooling (a.k.a. sweating) to help regulate core body temperature.
