    Anyone work out after midnight? I work 4-12 and my gym is on the way home. It makes sense for me but I'm not sure the best way to go about it. Light or heavy? Eat afterwards or not?

    I work out late too. I don't see why it would be a bad thing... as long as you're able to get a full night's sleep afterwards!

    Why can't you work out before 4? Is that not an option?

    Who works out after midnight? I'm assuming anyone at the 24/7 gym is gay at that time.

    I like to go jogging after midnight. Hard to find a gym that will stay open that late though. The (only) gym in my town closes at 10:30 PM weekdays and 7:30 PM on weekends, so I don't have that choice.

    Lift. Eat. The time doesn't matter - if it works for you /your schedule, do it. Just be consistent and get it done!

    rarely - but I have. that's part of why I put up with all the BS at Planet Fatness. It's open 24/7 so I can get there AFTER most have gone.

    Sounds like some kind of blues song.

    I've done it before, but generally I prefer to work out early in my wake cycle. I've done the whole "divorced from the sun" thing and always felt sick when doing so.
    I did it long enough to prove that I could survive a voyage to jupiter, but I can't guarantee whether I would be sane when I arrived.

    I go to the gym after midnight. I'm actually about to go now, lol. I usually just drink a protein shake afterward.

    Planet Fitness gyms are mostly straight. My gym is in the heart of Chelsea and I rarely get a vibe from anyone.
