    i gain better in winter cos my gym has no heaters, vents, in fact doens even have any proper walls or any windows at all so i have to work harder just to stay warm. in summer we just all go stand outside topless. i am the token skinny guy in that rabble

    but its not ideal. i find summer too hot and winter too cold right now. wich is weird cos i dont remember there being a point about, say, april, where it was perfect. it just seemed to go cooooooooooooldhooooooooooooooooot

    The only thing about Winter is when i get up to do morning cardio and it's still dark outside, makes me just want to go back to bed.

    Vampires and gargoyles don't see mornings...so nevermind.

    I prefer the winter I think...well here it lasts about 9 months...so meh.

    I think humans like any animal eat more when its cold,warmth I suppose so I guess your just putting on more weight in general.

    That's correct. In winter you eat a lot more food than in summer, therefore make better gains. I always use summer as maintenance months, gives my body a bit of a break (still train, but not as intensely) and then come winter i hammer it again.

    i cant wait till winter.

    going to start eating sooooo much without the worry of showing me cut when wearing t shirts

    hopefully, ill be able to hit real intense in the gym

    Hazard a touch of narcissism without shame.
    There is no room for junk food in any diet whatsoever, leave the junk in the bin.
