Canadian summers are my favorite time to train. The hot weather can make it hard to have achieve a good grip on the granite at Val-David, and that can be discouraging. However, training in these conditions can actually be interesting! It's the ideal time to push yourself harder. Since your body is warmed up by the heat, the likelihood of injury is lower and the volume of muscles is increased by heat expansion, allowing for a greater effort.  I like to do general training in the summers. I'm currently in my general cycle (2 months). I do 3 days of weight training (biceps, triceps, abs and shoulders) and 2 days of climbing. I also include days of card and of course muscle recovery periods. Happy training to all!
