HAs anyone on the site noticed a significant change in lifting ability during the winter months?
I’ve been lifting for a year and a half now and recently lifted through my first winter. While I was motivated in going to the gym and sticking to a program, I noticed that I seemed to be stuck at a slower pace.
Then about 2 months ago when the sun actually started coming out in my area (for some reason winter seemed to last quite a while) I noticed my motivation reached the new heights and the quality of my lifts improved dramatically. Progress also picked up.
I wouldn’t think anything of this, but I’ve always felt a little down during the winter months. I’ve never really put much effort in to correcting this, but now that I have more at stake, I’d like to keep this from happening again.
