Not the excuse "Ohhh it's toooo coooold". That's a matter of comfort and comfort is ephemeral. I am, however, wondering if there are ACTUAL repercussions/bonuses to training in the cold. I ask this because I'm about to go outback and do some... (more)

I would say to warm up & cool down inside where you're more comfortable. I workout in my attic, it gets pretty cold. I've thought about keeping my dumbells down, but it'll probably end up giving me a reason to not workout. I haven't noticed... (more)

During the time of year where you'd want to wear a jacket, the amount of UV is minimal and not at the optimal spectrum for D synthesis. For the rest of the year, you'd be better off just not wearing a shirt. If you're at a really high latitude,... (more)
