AS I sit here shivering I am so glad I found this post!! LOL I always come home from working out with the trainer and go straight to a nice hot tub. Mainly because I am sooooo cold! Glad to finally know "why" this is happening! Thanks guys -- it is great to learn so much in such a fun way!

This is a great example of "you can learn so much when you post on Spark"! I am freezing after workouts too, especially if I don't hop right in the shower afterward - and that shower has to be HOT. Let's keep working hard and train our bodies right!

I always take a quick shower followed by a long bath after every work out. I am always always always cold, these days at least... so taking a hot bath gets me warm enough that I can actually stay warm with blankets!! :)

Thanks ShrinkingLu! That helps a lot. I was surprised though, my heartrate did recover pretty fast after my workout, but it's interesting to to consider body temperature. I'll try the tea. :)

Totally normal!! I just learned about this in my physiology class a couple days ago, when I asked the same thing.

Our bodies are trying constantly to maintain a constant tempterature, so when you work out, and it raises, your body naturally tries to bring it back down. That's how we get all that nice sweat and attractive blotchy redness.

Well the less accustomed your body is to regular exercise, the longer it's going to take your heart and respiratory rate to come down to a normal level... which means all those things that try to cool you down kind of go into overdrive. Then, your body kind of overshoots its goal of normal body temperature, and brings it a tad lower.. and it's tired from working so hard, so it takes it longer to bring it back up.

Longer cool downs from your work out to bring your heart rate gradually down and anything that will bring up your core body temperature will help (hot tea, coco, food, etc.)

AND, best of all, the longer you maintain a regular vigorous exercise routine the less and less you will notice this, and the less time it will take!

Lots of things taste as good as being thin feels! That's why this's hard!

Make the decision that will make you feel good ABOUT YOURSELF, rather than the one that feels "good" right now.

I am the same way! I get chilled straight through to the bone, and no amount of sweaters or blankets can warm me up. I'm not sure what causes it (perhaps someone else does!), but it's unpleasant. It's good to know I'm not the only one.

a cup of tea sounds great. I'll get one. As it is I have the little electric heater on in my office. :)

Could you try some hot tea or cocoa after your workout? I walk, and it warms me up instead of cooling me down.

Does anyone else feel cold long after a good workout? It's been three hours since I completed my workout and I feel chili. I've noticed this the last couple of days. I've increased my workouts and now I feel cold the rest of the day.
