Coach Trevor Connor gives his five-minute explanation of why it is so important to dress warmly when you exercise in cold weather, particularly on a bike when the wind chill rises.

His recommendation? Overdress! When you overdress, you can become a little uncomfortable. When you underdress, you’re both uncomfortable and prone to doing damage to your body, which means you’re hurting your training.

So, he asks, which is more important to you: a little discomfort or good training?

He also answers common questions about sweating, the perception of cold, and why you need more than good gloves to truly stay warm when the temperatures plummet.
