The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Just do it whenever you feel you have the most energy to, and when it's the most convenient. It's not really that important.

    Sucks finding a place to eat that late. Bag lunch.

    That kind of shift sucks, period, for me. I did it for 2 weeks. Never again. Though I worked 160 hours those 2 weeks, and drove an hour and back every day.

    I was too exhausted to do anything those two weeks. Made good money, but it wasn't worth it.

    Wait... What was the topic?

    Oh, it doesn't matter. I would do it when I get home for the night, but that's my preference.
