    Just curious for any of you FT drivers that may have been gym rats before going full time. How do you manage getting to the gym now? I haven't been to the gym since starting full time, even before that since my wife having a baby. I've lost all motivation to work out and feel like garbage because of it. How do you guys motivate yourself to get a workout in?

    A lot of the guys will go before work, some will go during their lunch hour while others go right after work.

    We have a driver who power walks with his wife before work every day.

    It is hard, especially with a newborn, but it can be done.

    With this job I get enough exercise. If I just stopped eating garbage I'd look great. I dont know people work out before ups.

    BUCN85, you don't think the stretches during the PCM are enough? :)

    I started going later in the evenings between 8 and 9 pm. Nice stress relief and a good wind down to blow all your energy out before hitting the sack. Also, train on weekends. Friday night's are a good way to get pumped up for your next few days off, depending on your age and if you still party.

    Well if we would do they 5 days a week then MAYBE. But we only get to them like twice a week. So I'm not getting my fix.

    Unfortunately going after work just wouldn't be an option for me having a wife a child that I don't see during the week as it is. I just gotta BUC up and so it

    Yeah I hear you man. You could try and fit it in maybe 2 nights a week or something an hour at a time. It's pretty therapeutic in my opinion. I tried to before work but it just broke me halfway through the day.

    Go before work. It's that simple.

    I was being sarcastic. We stretch everyday but 2-3 minutes of half-hearted exercise is not nearly enough.

    Theres a driver in my center who stores a dumbbell on one of the bottom shelves. A lot of workers who claim to be really busy dont know that they can get a good exercise within 30 minutes of exercising. All you need is a dumbbell, and do your push ups and sit ups.

    Maybe it's just me cause I'm single and live alone, but I prefer after work. Those last few minutes of sleep and a good breakfast with a hot cup of coffee are the only way I can spend my pre work hours.

    No clue how you go after work. First never know when you'll be off. Second spent after working all day. Third I'm too pumped after a workout to sleep soon at all

    Also the nice thing about this job (depending on your goals) is if you eat right and monitor your macros, you can cut up very easily.

    Truth right there. I like to get my workout in at the same time every day and I also like to be rested up, the only way to do that with this job is hit the gym before work.

    I'm only 26 so I dont sleep too many hours a night, so late nights aren't an issue for me. Also, a lot of times I'm :censored2: off when I get off work so I go hit the iron hard and basically beat my anger out...thus making the next day a better day.

    It's totally so much easier if your a woman. They can have sex with pretty much any inanimate object.
