    I've REALLY been enjoying my additional weight day per week. The first couple of weeks I felt run down. My workouts are pretty big. But after those first few additional workouts, now I feel like a champ. Hopefully my schedule will continue to allow me to train at this rate.

    I will say, however, that after training hard in the gym all week, and then having the first really nice weekend of the year... I was moving hay bales this weekend, shoveling, carrying tons of heavy shit at the farm, etc. I'm wrecked. My back hurts. My arms hurt. I think I'm gonna take tonight off. Maybe do some light cardio and just recoupe.

    I can control the humidity through my furnace controls if that counts? Usually around 40%.

    I'm not against humidifiers, but I hate how if you have them in a certain position for, say, a couple months, wherever the thing is pointed, it leaves a hard layer of scale on wherever the vapour is pointed. Crusty carpet / mineral-stained hardwood. Well, for the super cheap ones that are like $50. I have a friend that has a $500 one and it's BOMB. I don't need a humidifier that badly... I don't think.

    There are some where you need a referral because they're specialists, but I just book. It also depends on your coverage -some insurance companies require a prescription/note/referral from your GP first.

    If you need to get into one asap, I usually go to the glenn sather. Then go see your doctor to see if you need to go to a specialist. Sorta two birds stoned.

    Completely unrelated: I did dumbbells on bench press first yesterday and what a difference. The past few months I started chest days with barbell and then switched to dumbbells. By the time I hit dumbbells, I might have been able to squeeze 100 lbs dumbbells out for 6 reps. Starting with dumbbells, after 4 warm up sets, I easily hit 12 reps on 100 lbs dumbbells and only stopped because I think that anything after 12 is a bit useless. I need heavier dumbbells lol

    That's nice to see. I thought I was being a complete pussy not being able to lift the 100s like I used to but I guess it was just the case of me fatiguing out before even attempting the dumbbells. Curious what I'll fatigue out at with the 100 lbs dumbbells.
