Exercising outside

Does anyone else here really not care for the gym, and much prefer to exercise outside whenever possible? I always find the air in the gym to be more limited, since there are many people in a confined space breathing heavily. I love me a good workout running outside, doing dumbbells, etc.

When to know you've sufficiently exhausted a bicep?

Biceps seem to be one of those bottomless pit muscles that always seem to be ready for another set of 10 reps to failure after a few minutes. I've only been back into lifting since July and I have had bicep growth, but seemingly not in proportion to the rest. But when I do biceps, I usually go...
