NOTTINGHAM, England, October 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Over the weekend we waved goodbye to British Summer Time and said hello to Greenwich Mean Time, signifying darker nights and colder days and instead of taking your football indoors, SportsDirect.com take a look at how to cope with football training outside, during the Winter months.
It is important, during any sport, to keep your temperature regulated and ensure that you don't overheat or get too cold. It is also believed that the cold weather has a strong link with achy joints, so keeping warm whilst exercising is crucial.
One of the best ways to ensure a regulated temperature and avoid overheating is by layering up. Firstly, start with a base layer. Sondico base layers are perfect for football training, featuring a compression fit to keep the heat in, as well as ventilation panels and moisture wicking fabric for when your temperature rises. The base layer tops are also available in both short sleeves and long sleeves with some also having high-necks for when the weather is really bad.
Secondly, during training don't be afraid to wrap up to start off with. If it's raining or particularly cold then a track jacket or a specific rain jacket for training are a must. Most feature a mesh lining for breathability as well as elasticated cuffs and waistband to ensure that the wind and rain doesn't seep through.
A pair of gloves and a hat are also handy for keeping in your training bag. If the wind is bitter then you could get earache and wearing a hat could prevent that, remember they can always be removed later on in training when your body temperature has increased.
The most important thing to remember is that although everyone's temperature does increase during exercise, but it is still essential to wrap up at the start of training.
