    Weight Lifting in the COLD


    For anybody who lives up north advice on how to train in the cold would help. I workout in my garage, it is around 50 degrees when I am in there and my workouts have been horrid. I can't get any pumps going, I feel like I am overheating but I can't take off my jacket because I am freezing. Leg days are the worst I get very winded, dizzy, and lightheaded. Does anyone have experience with this?

    Join a gym, your going to hurt yourself, your joints and muscles won't stay warm and your going to injure yourself it's not worth it, then just go back to working out in your garage in the warmer months.

    Either A) Join a gym or B) Buy a nice compact space heater from your local hardware store.

    if you have no where else to workout get a space heater and make sure you do a good warm up 5-10 mins cardio then stretching.

    It has nothing to do with being strong. His risk for injury goes up 10x's because of the external enviroment.

    Wear some warm clothing and do some cardio before the workout, maybe a hot shower before? I dunno just some suggestions, if they dont work and your still cold you should really join a gym.
