Got up this morning to again super cold weather. I felt it was time to go big or go back to bed. So I suited up like a winter warrior, took my 50lb Olympic bar outside with 2x45 plates and 2x25 plates, dug out my yard and did clean and presses. Let me tell you dropping the bar after the press FEELS SO GOOD. Something I can't do indoors! I'd do a ton of them until I was tired and walked in to warm up. Rinse and repeat. Let me tell you about muscle fatigue and cold temperatures! It is practically non-existent. I so understand why the Vikings where so big. I did that for a total of maybe an hour then came inside and realized it had gotten to 0 degrees! So I took all the equipment inside, ate BIG (1200 cals) and walked to the gym. Got there and spent another hour doing deadlifts, shrugs, bend over rows and dumb presses. Then ate about 2 cups of rice walked around the mall for maybe 20 mins then went back in and hit legs hard for about an hour. All in all I figured I'll go to sleep with perhaps 6400 cals and almost 3 hours worth of heavy ass lifting. I probably won't make a habit of doing this, but I figure "why the fuck not?" Since I've been feeling like shit due to the weather and not being outside more.

I am seriously contemplating just saying screw dropping bf% and eating 8000 cals a day and going has heavy as possible each time out. Just to see how big and strong I can get. Then on the other hand, I am not too concerned with anything other than lower my bf%. Since it is something I've wanted since losing weight. Anyway, I'm just rambling at this point. I'll probably reassess things next month when my brother moves up here and my uncle comes to visit.

Business as usual; hit legs in the AM. Although I did it on an empty stomach and drank aminos all throughout. Great thing is the temp is up to 18F!

Tell me about it, I just got through walking back and forth to the store to pick up about 2lbs of mushrooms and a big old thing of raw baby spinach leaves! Yum yum! Did I mention the produce wasn't 'that' frozen when I walked into the house?! :lachmal:

Today was suppose to be back day but that didn't go as planned. It warmed up to 36F with freezing rain and wind gusts up to 105mph. I walked a few blocks and was soaked and being knocked around by the wind, so I came back into the house. Just to have the electricity cut off due to a transformer going out. An hour and a half later electricity was restored and I was sitting in my cold house trying to warm up.

Public transportation, schools, post office services and trash pickup are all canceled today. So we will see if the weather lets up before I have to go into work. I'm still tempted to walk to the gym to get back done. If the weather lets up, if not it won't kill me to rest today.

There was a let up in the weather so I 'slid' (yes I was sliding practically all the way) over to the gym and went rather heavy. There were alot of folks there running in and out so I had to cut the workout short. I felt good overall about the routine though.

Nice warm weather here at 48F and raining. Took an set of clothes into the gym and hit delts. Jogged back in the extra set of clothes...found a path that wasn't too slippery. Woot!

Another weird swing in weather with rains during the day and single digit drops at night. The roads and sidewalks are all covered with ice. The same city services canceled again. Hitting biceps and triceps here at the house.

This morning was uncharacteristically crowded. There were people down in the freeweight room running in place, stretching and doing bodyweight exercises. Go figure! Anyway I wasn't able to go super heavy, so I shorten my rests in between sets and aimed for the 14-16 rep range. :boxer: I definitely felt it on the trip home.

Hit chest this morning and ended up with the best chest pump to date! I had to jump on the machines since the freeweight room was again crowded with folks who weren't even touching the weights. I when kapu 3 machines, the decline press, chest press and pec fly and basically hit them all rotation 4 sets of 8 back to back with maybe 45-60sec rest. Completed 4 rotations of all 4x8.

It's cool that you do a lot of stuff outdoors. I've become way to comfy indoors...

Yeah a change of scenery is good for the mind and a change of lifting/cardio routine is good for the body. I just recently started lifting outside during winter time. I just got fed up by always waiting on a clearing during the winter weather to go walking or running. Or allowing it to dictate if I could comfortably head into the gym. Now I just suit up for the next Ice Age and head on out!
