    Question Freezing after exercise

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone else get cold after exercising. Generally after an hour afterwards I'm freezing. Today I went and got a blanket and wrapped it around me for an hour or so. Sometimes when I go directly to work I'll need a sweater or when someone accidentally touch me they'll ask me way I'm so cold. just curious. I live florida so it's definently not cold here.

    Yep. It has happened to me. Can't say why it happens, but a warm bath or shower helps. Also something warm to drink helps, too.

    Not freezing for me -- sleepy. Thursday is deadlift day. I'm usually fading by 8PM -- but I'm old.

    it's usually the opposite for me, unless it's a winter hike or something. exercise is my sure way to get and stay warm for a few hours if i'm cold. i wonder why it affects people so differently, and if it could be a gender thing...assuming those of you who are cold are women.

    I'm pretty warm for quite some time after exercising...and I usually take a cold shower afterwards too. Hmm...

    Yeah I would say exercise keeps me warm for a good hour or so after finishing.

    Googling cold after exercise has turned up some interesting answers: not hydrated enough (the most prevalent answer), you pushed too hard, Why do I feel cold after running?: Injuries: Runner's World Forums travenue's post (fourth post down), low blood sugar - there are others, but too complicated to list here.

    As I've said I have experienced this, but not recently. It was a bigger problem when I first started running 5 years ago. Perhaps my body has adjusted to working out. I also remember that when I first started, I wore the clothes I had had for years and had no current type wicking workout wear. My bra was cotton and stayed moist, which didn't help during my cool down, because I would get too cold and stay that way. Changing what I wore helped a lot, but not completely; however, I've noticed that I no longer have the problem of feeling chilled after exercise.

    Yes I sometimes get cold. If you are in Florida I'm sure you are sitting in air conditioning which feels too cold all the time to me. Sometimes I feel cold just because of salt on my skin that has dried from the sweat. Washing it off warms me back up.

    I don't actually turn on my a/c unless I'm going to bed otherwise I would be freezing all the time.

    I do try to prehydrate before working out because my bp seems to drop if I don't.

    Maybe I need a new workout bra. It's been awhile since I've got a new one. I do know the shirts I wear are about three sizes to big from weight loss and there fairly soaked when finished .

    Feeling cold and/or sleepy can be a sign of excess histamine release post-exercise. That can be a symptom of excess inflammation or other factors.
