    Lunch time is the only time I go to the gym anymore. And it's the best.

    Couldn't imagine going in the morning. My body just isn't ready for it. Too tired after work.

    I wish I could get up at 4am to start the day. I managed to do 5:30 for a time and I loved watching the sun come up, but I couldn't lift nearly as well that early in the morning.

    I used to do kickboxing in the morning before work but I'm just not a morning person. I typically go on my lunch break or after work. Wish I would go in the morning tho because it's nice to get it over with and know it's done. It sucks when I rly wanna go after work but something comes up and I can't. Vs the morning because not much rly unexpected comes up then

    I've never in my life been a morning person...I could EASILY sleep until noon or 1 pm if I could.

    You’d think as you grow up, have a career (where you wake up every day between 6-730 am for 12 straight years) and having kids (where you never get sleep) you’d get used to waking up early...but nope, definitely not.

    I’ve definitely become more a morning person as I’m older (preference is a workout between 8-10 am), but 4 AM is still the middle of the night lol

    i go to bed between 10-11 pm. it's weird / sucks because i adore sleeping and could sleep forever (on weekends when i go to the gym i come home, eat breakfast, shower and then go back to bed) but if i sleep more than 5 hours a night i'm super groggy and like overtired or something. so as much as i wince at the idea of only sleeping 5-6 hours a night, it makes sense for my body because if i get more than that i'm not gonna be productive at all that day.

    There isn’t enough time over lunch to work out properly, though. Unless you’re lucky and get like two hours.

    If you do compound lifts you can get a solid workout in an hour or less. At least I can...

    What about drive time? Actually eating? Showering to not be disgusting at work? Cardio?

    I would need minimum two hours to workout over lunch and that’s eating while driving.

    I'm talking doing heavy squats, deadlifts, and presses. I pick two and do 3x5 (except DL are 1x5) and can get them done in 30-40 minutes and I'm toast. Takes me 10-15 minutes to get to my gym and change, and I'll do a poor man's shower if I'm particularly ripe. I eat at my desk and save cardio for the weekends.

    I suppose if your fitness goals are different this might not be feasible in an hour, hour 15. Just saying it's possible to put in work in a short amount of time.

    Yeah, I gotcha. I swear far too much to not do an entire shower anytime I workout so that’s always an extra 15 minutes in my mind. My job doesn’t let us eat at our desk (eyeroll).

    I’m on day 2 of whole30 (but doing fifty days) and day 7 of being anti-depressant free and let me tell you that vertigo (main side effect of coming off my scrip) and heavy cardio do not mix.

    Everything feels wild right now tbh. But yes, I’m also being careful and really listening to my body. I just can’t go in my next vacation feeling the way I currently do about my body.

    If I work out on my lunch break I do a shorter version. Like 20-30 min cardo and 15 min of strength training or stretching. But I also live in an area where everything is 5 min away so that helps. Then I just eat while I work like the sad person I am.

    My gym is about 10-15 min away from my work so I’m gone 11:30-1:30 Mon, Wed & Fri. Tues/Thurs i don’t really take a lunch at all so it all kind of evens out. Plus I do some night events for work every now and then so no one ever questions it because I’m easily still putting in 40 hours + every week.

    I also tend to come in a little earlier and leave a little later on the three days I do go to the gym on lunch

    The part I like about going super early in the morning (or super late at night like I used to) is that it’s quieter, I can zone in and focus more and I can take my time warming up or winding down vs battling the clock to get back to work (meeting or no meeting).

    Perfect world - yeah, I’d love to go during lunch (maybe) but much like @Garrett L. said and voiced concerns about, the loss of time, the rushing and all the other extracurricular outside of actually getting a workout in wouldn’t make it worth it.

    Also I work like 15-20 minutes away from the gym which doesn’t help
