    Working out in the cold good or bad?

    How bad is it working out in the cold? Lifting weights, pullups, situps etc.

    If it was in a movie it's gotta be true.

    Aren't there some videos or pics of the old school karateka training in the snow barechested and other insane behavior? Those were some hard bastards.

    We vault in a a covered but unenclosed arena all year. It gets down to around 20F. A proper warm up/cool down is utterly crucial, but other than that, it's no different from any other temperature. We don't do anywhere as much developmental stretching when it gets that cold, though. It's not hard to overdo to start with, and just plain damn easy to pull something when it's that cold.

    I, personally, dislike cardio in the cold, like below 35-40. It makes my throat sore, regardless of how I breathe.

    As has been said.... as long as you get a decent warm-up so that your body temp is raised (which may take longer in the cold weather), it shouldn't make much difference.

    I read somewhere that people who regularly exercise in cold weather have lower body fat percentages and higher VO2 maxes, or something.

    I think they compared soldiers at Fort Carson with soldiers at Fort Benning.
