May 1st. Time To Get Moving…

This was a rough winter.

It wasn’t necessarily very cold or snowy, but it just seemed to drag on forever.  The first couple weeks of April were still pretty bad out (NYC) but now it finally looks like we are turning a corner.

For myself, I make it a point to start training outside in March, no matter how nasty the weather is.

Unless it’s pouring rain out, I will wear the appropriate clothes and go outside.

Reason? I know that the nice weather does not come slowly, it appears IMMEDIATELY.

Later this week it may reach 80 degrees in NYC.  Luckily for me, I am already in decent shape.

I am running 3 miles in under 21 minutes, I am still benching and deadlifting relatively heavy and I lost 25 lbs since January.

Today I actually took my shirt off in public, which is pretty impressive for April.  Usually I don’t like to show the goods until Memorial Day.

May is an important month for bodybuilding.  If you are not already killing it in your training, you better start now.

You can look a lot better for Memorial Day and you can get ripped for July 4th, but you don’t have a lot of time.

Start cutting weight, continue to lift heavy and introduce moderate cardio to your routine.

Summer will be here before you know it.

If you haven’t started yet, you better get moving.

P.S. Big race coming up on May 17th.  After the race, going to officially start bodybuilding for July 4th and continue to run a race here and there over the summer.

I usually peak in Late August, so I should have some good pictures this summer!
