Am I at greater risk of muscle or joint injury when I exercise in the cold?
In general, cold-weather workouts are almost always safe, as long as you bundle up(layers are key) and pay extra attention to slick, slippery surfaces.
But what’s happening inside?
Cold weather certainly can increase your risk of straining or tearing something. That’s because the lower temps cause our muscles to tighten a little bit more.
