WIND CHILL ISN’T FOR SURE, BUT IT’S NOT AS BAD AS PEOPLE TELL US, says a former tennis coach who spent his career working with players on the court.
In the latest installment of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, the former tennis player and now head coach at the Australian Open, he explains why it’s OK to use cold showers if you’re training.
“There’s a whole spectrum of what is and is not appropriate to do in a warm climate,” he told Noah.
“If you’re not doing warm-up drills and you’re doing your warm-down, then you’re putting yourself at risk of the frostbite, because the temperature is just not right.”
So if you have a hot shower and you take a few minutes out of the day to get out there and cool off, it’s better for you to do that than it is to not do it.
“What does the sun’s warmth actually do to your body?
A cold shower or hot shower?
The Australian Open is one of the oldest tennis tournaments in the world.
There were no heaters in the tournament when it opened in 1987.
It has since expanded to include indoor courts and now features six outdoor courts, including the Parc des Princes, which has its own temperature-controlled showers.
The main difference between indoor and outdoor courts is the temperature.
Outside, it drops by about 5 degrees Celsius during the day, while indoors it rises by about 10 degrees Celsius.
You need to be able to keep your body cool if you want to enjoy the game, Noah said.
How much wind chill do you need?
If you can get the right wind chill to help you recover, that’s OK, he said.
But if you don’t want to worry about it, don’t go too far outside in the middle of the night.
Even if it’s a chilly day, Noah suggested warming up by sitting on the ground in front of a window.
If you have to go outside, he suggested getting your hair wet and doing some sun protection.
You can also try walking around in the heat, or walking in the shade of your house.
And if you can’t afford to get up and go outside all the time, consider walking to work or grocery stores.
But if it can’t be done outside, consider going outside with your family.
It’s important to remember that it’s important for people to be in a good mood.
It helps to be well hydrated, said Noah.
And if that’s not possible, try getting a shower and then getting your clothes dryer or electric dryer to get your clothes dried.
And to get the most out of a cold-weather day, he suggests using a towel to cover your head and neck.
