Sometimes you just have to put your headphones on, block out the world, and lift heavy. I saved up all my favourite leg exercises for my Saturday sesh at Alpha. I took my time, enjoyed the mind-muscle connection, and really enjoyed having some space!

Dressing for Winter Workouts
If you are avoiding your workouts in the cold because your last one was miserable, plan right so you can get back outside and moving! Wear layers. Layering is the key to avoid over or under dressing. Wear a layer that blocks the wind, tights, pants and a top that can wick the moisture from your skin. A mid layer, like fleece, may be best for cold days.
Also grab a hat or headband and gloves. Your body temperature increases when you run so you will not need as many layers as you think.
It is also important that you dress for 15 to 20 degrees warmer. It is easy to overdress, making your run miserable. This is another reason layering is important – you can remove a layer if you get too warm.
