Winter Sports Benefits
For those that have some winter slopes skills, you have the potential of spending an afternoon on the hill sweating upward of 1000 calories.
Compared to indoor workouts, winter sports tend to burn more calories. This is because your body is working harder to maintain its core temperature.
Obviously the number of calories burned will depend on the individual’s body mass and temperature, but on average an afternoon of skiing burns about 1,000 calories, the same as an average hour-long spinning class (but with a much better view).
Because it’s such a hard workout without you even realizing it, it’s very important to warm up your muscles before you start skiing.
Tackling the slopes works your balance skills. This means you are getting a full-body workout that is concentrated on the legs and core for stability.
Be sure you start working your squats, planks, and yoga stretches and build up to your cardio.
You are going to have so much fun that you won’t even realize that you are being challenged!
The Fresh Air
Escaping the low-quality air in the city and getting up to the mountains is great for your body and mind. The fresh, pure air in the mountains will help cleanse your lungs. Cold weather also pushes your heart to function harder, boosting cardiovascular health.
Sunshine And Vitamin D
You may or may not be a fan of the cold, but that doesn’t mean the sun isn’t shining! Vitamin D helps you develop strong muscles and bones. Rather than sitting inside and becoming vitamin D deficient until summer comes around again, get out in the sun and enjoy some winter sports! The natural light is actually more restrained in the winter, so the benefits of the sun can be more effective.
In cold temperatures, your body is committed to staying warm, which leads to the production of endorphins. This boosts your mood and leaves you feeling more positive and upbeat. This will also help battle cabin fever and winter depression.
