This post title could mean many things.
- I did so many reps at the gym that I maxed out my muscles.
- I bought too many Christmas gifts and maxed out my credit card.
False and false (thankfully!).
Today I realized that one hour is the maximum amount of time I like to spend at the gym. It seems like right when I realize I’ve been there for an hour, my brain shuts down and says, “Time to go!”
I can almost always get in and out of the gym in 60 minutes or less, but sometimes Ryan takes a little longer when he does a 20 minute cardio warm up before his strength training workout with me.
After 20 minutes of cardio and a solid upper body workout, I had been at the gym for 55 minutes and was done. I looked at Ryan and he said he needed a little bit longer, so rather than stand around in the lobby reading magazines like I usually do when I wait for him, I decided to get in some stretching. Much more productive!
How long do you usually workout for at the gym before you mentally check out of a workout?
Today’s morning meal included an egg sandwich made with a toasted whole wheat English muffin, two fried eggs, muenster cheese and raspberry jelly.
My taste buds never tire of this combination.
