A lot of it I can do. Some of it though just makes me wince to look at, much less do.

Not my favorites either. However, 5 sets of 4 with boots on is rather painful. Barefoot or in sneaks I can get away with 3 sets of 7.

I quit wearing boots a long time ago. At my age, hanging leg raises are a bitch in bare feet even! I do them anyway. Two sets of 10 take me a while but I get em all.

Eight count body builders pretty much kick my tail. Couple of sets and I need to go lay down to contemplate how stupid I've gotten in my middle years.....

Hanging leg raises in 14 degree weather suck even more.

Aiming a satelite dish into the wind at about 30 degrees F is no picknick I discovered. Gloves are too bulky for wrench work, the dish gets stiff and cold.

But, PT in cold weather sucks no matter what. Even running I never got warm. Now that I have retired I fatted up to 190 at six foot. On AD I was usually 170-180. That's like zero insulating material. Any breeze and I got cold.

Thank God for Polypros and goretex.

I'm kind of laughing. Been an electrician since I retired. No, you can't wear the gloves. Kind of painful on the fingers.

They're not warm as real gloves of course, but they are better than nothing and still provide the tactile sensitivity required to shoot meth heads, errr hang satellite dishes.
