Train Through The Cold This Winter

Nothing is worse than that 5 a.m. alarm on a cold winter morning. You lay tangled up in your bed sheets and get the feeling as if you are wrapped in a warm cocoon, but the draft of ice cold air on your face can only make you shiver. Hitting the snooze button crosses your mind a number of times — but you are a determined athlete and decide to hop out of bed and get dressed.

However, predicament number two hits you as you think about what you are going to wear to keep warm, but also wick away unnecessary sweat during your morning workout. As you rifle through your drawers you sift through an assortment of Nike and Under Armour training gear, but can’t quite decide what apparel is right for your cold morning ahead.

In the winter months, many athletes try their best to avoid outdoor workouts, escaping into a warm gym for hours at a time. But many don’t have the luxury of an open gym for their workouts, or simply hate the thought of running on a treadmill. For those winter warriors training outdoors, here’s the gear you need to make it through the next few months.

Nike Hyperwarm Gear

Whether it is compression tights, a long-sleeve compression top, or a half-zip pullover, Nike has what you need to take on the elements in their Hyperwarm clothing. When you are looking to train outdoors in the cold, you need clothing that can keep your muscles warm — Hyperwarm gear does just that. This apparel regulates temperature by locking in body heat and using strategically placed areas of breathability to cool things down when you begin to overheat.

Hyperwarm is made with Nike Dri-FIT material to wick away your built up sweat from your workout, and to keep you dry in the elements like snow and rain — which can significantly lower your body temperature if absorbed into the clothing. This product is ideal for layering during your training, or even wearing underneath a jersey for the big game.

Nike Therma Hoodie

Looking to bundle up during your outdoor agility training session? Then the Nike Therma Hoodie is the ideal pick-up for you. This sweatshirt has a thick layer of insulation inside to protect you from the cold. This soft insulation essentially traps the heat you create to keep your body temperature from dropping.

The microfiber fleece design in the hoodie is thick enough to keep you warm, but also thin enough to give you the range of motion needed during the toughest of workouts. Along with the warm and insulated fabric throughout, this sweatshirt also offers a scuba hood to cover your chin and head in bitterly cold conditions.

Under Armour ColdGear Infrared

The Infrared technology that Under Armour has tapped into and developed over the past years has continued to develop, and is now available in winter jackets, pullovers, hoodies, long-sleeve shirts, leggings, and even hats and gloves. This technology uses a soft thermo-conductive inner coating to absorb and retain your body heat.

This lightweight but warm clothing is perfect for layering underneath a hoodie in extremely cold conditions, or for wearing over other Under Armour compression products. The material is also perfect for your agility training when cutting through cold winds.

Under Armour Storm Armour

Storm Armour technology is a feature found in many of Under Armour’s top sweatshirts and sweatpants and is an ideal feature for outdoor training. This apparel is lined with fleece, and gives you that warm feeling of being wrapped up in a blanket while powering through your outdoor workouts.

Storm Armour is another great option for layering during your training. Combine it with compression tops and tights to block out the cold and keep your muscles warm and supported.

No matter what climate you live in or how dedicated you are to your outdoor training, eastbay.com has what you need to keep warm all winter long. So push through your agility training or your long outdoor run with confidence, knowing your layers will keep you warm and dry all workout long.
