Posted by Savage Jerky Co. at

Winter sports are no joke: Not only do you need to fuel your body for your workout, but your body needs extra fuel to protect it in cold temperatures.  During a winter workout — like for any workout — you need to fuel your body with the right nutrients and hydration. Winter sports include skiing and snowboarding as well as hiking, snowmobiling, ice fishing and, yes, even shoveling snow.  While you might not consider snow shoveling a “winter sport,” it is vigorous physical activity (call us Captain Obvious).
