There are advantages to being a female athlete: more endurance, a greater tolerance for pain and the ability to look good doing it. That’s not to say that there aren’t disadvantages, which is why women’s Under Armour Cold Gear is necessary if you want to train during the winter months.
Women, in general, are more vulnerable to the cold than men are. This one of the drawbacks to having less muscle mass and a smaller body size than men, both of which lead to women having less ability to regulate their body temperature when the weather gets cold. On the upside, they tend to tolerate heat better.
But for the winter months, proper workout gear is essential, which is where women’s Under Armour Cold Gear comes in handy. Just dressing up in a bunch of heavy clothing, the usual method, isn’t going to work if you want to get the most of your winter workouts.
The problem is the matter of heat regulation; as you exercise, your body produces excess heat. The usual way to get rid of this is by sweating, but when you are bundled up in winter clothing your body can’t dissipate heat properly.
Women’s Under Armour Cold Gear is designed to allow your body to be able to maintain the right temperature, which means that you’re both more comfortable and able to perform better.
Basically you want to dress in layers, which allows you to keep more air around your body, producing better insulation. Generally speaking, you need at least two layers of women’s Under Armour Cold Gear for optimum results, and sometimes three or more.
The first layer is base layer, and here you want something that is tight fitting, like the leggings or compression shorts that Under Armour offers, but able to wick away moisture.
Your next layer is something heavier and somewhat looser, and your final layer, which is optional depending on what you’re going to be doing, is your shell layer, which protects you from the elements.
A good layout of women’s Under Armour Cold Gear would look something like this:
Base Layer Bottom
For this layer, you want something that fits snugly, so that it can keep the moisture off you. This will help to keep you both warm and comfortable. You’re going to be looking at women’s tights as your base layer.
Outer Layer Bottom
This layer is designed to provide insulation, so what you want is something that is loose enough to be able to keep a layer of air in between layer. It should still have the wicking capability, but fortunately all women’s Under Armour Cold Gear does. You’re going to want something like the Frigid pants for this.
