    How do you balance gym and working?
  2. I'm too busy shaving to go the gym.

    Had a Y membership all last year and never stepped foot into the place.
    I simply arm curl all my over 70's while maintaining a brisk pace from the street to the front door.

    Many of my hobbies are physical things like hiking, climbing, kayaking, snowboarding, so I stay in shape that way.

    I still believe only trendy herd mentality type people go to the gym (it's a social status thing for them) or very busy (they think they are busy) city people go to the gym.

    For real go ride your bike around town.

    There's not much chance of getting mowed down by some kid in a car chasing Pokémon at the gym.

    But that's just me......
  10. I drive feeder at night. My gym is on the way home. Most weeks I can make it in there a few days a week to lift. Ride my bike also when I can for some cardio.

    But there are some weeks where 50-60 hours doesn't leave enough time to make it in there. Those weeks I would rather focus on sleep with the little time between shifts. The equipment we drive is just too big to risk it

    I don't. I get paid to work out.

    I used to, but walking 10 miles a day while delivering is enough for me now.

    Gym every morning before work, first thing when I get up. The hardest part is getting up and going. Once you're there it really wakes your ass up.

    Those things will keep you "in shape" but they don't target specific muscle groups in the way working out in a gym will.

    And that's not true at all. If I want to look like I was sculpted by Michelangelo himself when my clothes are off, the gym is the only way.

    No thanks. I use equipment provided. A stair machine and a treadmill. Pushing and pulling. Doing curls lifting off the shelves. If I didn't have power steering again. Another workout
