    This is only true if your muscle temperature drops with air temperature. Once you have been exercising for more than a couple of minutes, your muscles are plenty warm. The fact that you can overheat while exercising even in freezing cold weather shows this pretty plainly. If your body is making so much heat that you have to work to dump it to the environment, you do not have a problem with cold hemoglobin, LOL.
