We all know how winter can make complete bears out of men—the hibernation, the laziness; you name it! It’s no wonder then that you get out of it looking ten pounds heavier, not to mention that bulge around what once used to be a perfectly normal waistline. We got Himanshu Bathla, Founder of CrossFit Stride, Powered by Reebok, to dish out valuable details on how to keep your winter workout simple, yet fruitful. Take a look at the tips he doles out and how he does it, like a pro!1. Dress Right© SHUTTERSTOCK”Wear multiple layers that you can take off easily”, Bathla advises. “Layering with thin tight clothes is better than one thick layer as it provides better insulation and better movement.” Go for fabrics, like synthetic fibres, that will keep you dry and warm without restricting your movements. Perspiration during winter workouts could possibly lead to hypothermia. “Wearing compression is a great idea in winters as it not only helps you to keep warm but also to recover faster from the workout,” he adds. Be sure to wear warm hats, gloves and socks that will keep your feet dry. If you like working outdoors, go for reflective bright-coloured clothes and shoes to be safe on the roads.2.

Try to set a goal for the entire winter season—it could be running a marathon or just losing a few inches. “Make sure that it is achievable and measurable. For example, if you can do 10 push-ups now, set a goal for 20 push-ups by the end of one month. This is both measurable and achievable,” Bathla explains.3. Look For A Partner Or A Group© SHUTTERSTOCKThere is nothing like having a partner , a group or a personal trainer to workout with. Bathla says this will keep you motivated and increase your efforts while training. You will be more likely to stick to a schedule and have a better time while working out. If you don’t have a workout buddy and can’t afford a personal trainer, you can definitely join a group class. There are so many options available out there today including yoga, pilates, running and biking groups.4. Go Outdoors© SHUTTERSTOCKWorking out outdoors in the winter is always advised because, as Bathla says, “It helps you burn more calories as the body has to work harder to maintain body temperature. Also, getting some fresh air is good for your mind, as well.”5. Stay Hydrated© SHUTTERSTOCKMake sure to drink enough water even when it’s cold. “It is very easy to get dehydrated in winters as it is harder to notice when you’re thirsty,” the fitness coach reminds us. We may be sweating but the body temperature is not too hot. Load up on water before starting a workout and carry a water bottle with you. A good rule, according to Bathla, is to have at least 3-4 cups of water during your workouts.6. Longer Warm-ups
