Gary Sforzo, professor of exercise and sport sciences
Health Day reported Gary Sforzo’s research about exercising during cold weather. "The body produces a lot of heat during exercise and when it produces heat, it pretty much diminishes any chance of hypothermia," Sforzo explained. "The key is continuous exercise. If you go outdoors for a walk or run, just move continuously. Don't stop for five or 10 minutes to talk to your neighbor. Hikers sometimes get into trouble if they stop for lunch. As long as you are moving, the muscles produce metabolic heat and that metabolic heat will keep you pretty warm, sometimes to the point where you need to remove clothing."
