Colder temperatures mean that your muscles are more likely to become cool faster, making them more prone to injury. Winter sports such as skiing, snowboarding, ice climbing and ice hockey can put your body into awkward an unpredictable positions so it is important to prepare for this to avoid potential injury.

It can get your heart rate up, improving your circulation- and like any other exercise involving resistance, snow shovelling will release endorphins and boost your mood. Turns out this commonly dreaded chore actually has more benefits than you thought!
