Winter Base Building for Fitness.

It’s Winter. Build your fitness base now by shoveling, skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, riding inside or out. Move that body! 
Aerobic workouts increase your heart stroke volume, build capillary density and muscular adaptations, that improve oxygen transportation to your muscles and keep your fitness from fading away. The older we get the easier it is to lose our fitness in just a few weeks. Building a good foundation (also called your Base) now, for endurance events this summer, is very important. More capillaries (density) equals more blood and oxygen to your working muscles equals more endurance and fitness later.
