just picked one up last week. keeping this thing in my pocket to hold on to between throws made all the difference. you can pick them up at any sporting goods/hunting store.
I was thinking of this.

Tried this yesterday, also a slower speed disc, it seems to help.

Cold weather? Still trying to figure out what that is.. we have had a super warm winter so far, they say maybe next Thursday we could have some precip, but until then 50' and 60's and sunny.

I use a handwarmer in my right pocket and layer with merino wool base layer, so far it's never failed me.

Side question but I think relevant here; I have seen guys playing in the snow with a ribbon? attached to their disc to help find it. How do you guys attach that so it stays? Just tape?

When I play in the cold I tend to wear thermals and loose fitting (or anything that can stretch) jackets/hoodies so as not to hinder my movements. I hate when I'm wearing a coat and can't get the full range of motion I need to get that disc out there.
I would suggest some Calisthenics, Lunges and Jumping jacks would probably be best, since your legs have the biggest muscles they can help get more oxygen to the rest of your body which will limber you up and help keep your core warm. Push ups and pull ups might hinder your shots by tiring you out.
I also keep my beer in my left hand and my right in my pocket when I'm not throwing.

I think that stuff is closer to 5.5% but i dont drink that **** and i keep my beer in my golf bag in a insulated holder so it doesn't freeze lmfao

that was just a beer someone had sat on a picnic table next to one of the tee pads @ westchester lagoon dgc in Ancorage. lol And yes! strong beer in cold weather is a must!

everyone is given you the suggestions for what to wear, so here is your words of motivation, throwing during the winter with the extra layers and cold will decrease your drive length... but if you play/play a lot in the winter when spring comes around and you get back into shorts and tshirts youll be ripping drives and gain back all if not more of your distance... I gained like 50ft on my drives last spring (compared to the fall before) when i traded in the winter clothes for some tshirts...
