    How does one find the time to workout? My schedule is going to be even crazier this spring, with 15 credits and two internships. I want to start devoting some time to workouts, but when?

    I guess waking up very early (4 am) would help, but I have inconsistent sleeping patterns. I'm also just lazy and would rather get those extra two to three hours of sleep.

    Just interested in hearing what methods you use, as far as time management, increasing will power, and scheduling (how many days a week, and in what intervals, etc.)

    Also, how long have you been working out, and how has it changed your life?

    Don't forget it's 60% diet, 40% exercise. If you are working out for strength or size you could do as little as 3 hours a week.

    ^When I see that info commercial, I want to put them all in straight jackets. Nothing like a room full of people jumping around like they're being electrocuted.

    ikilledcaptainplanet saidhow much days a week you plan on going to the gym? if you're going to the gym 5 days a week, you might have to push it down to 3. are you busy on the weekends?


    I would say 3 days. Is that good?

    Oh, and I've never been to the gym. The most I've ever done is run around the neighborhood. So I guess it's more about getting started.

    Yeah, so what should I cut out? I consume A LOT of dairy (yogurt, milk, cheese, yada yada) and eat lots of sugar-rich foods as well, which I know is not good.

    If you don't have time for the gym, why don't you bring the gym at home? When I couldn't go to the gym I would just use two empty milk jugs and fill it with water and use it as weights. I do have ankle weights as well and a pull up bar. Those should last me until I can go back to the gym.

    Rather than cutting out specific things, you can find comprehensive diet plans for different goals online that cover everything you need to eat. I did one for 12 weeks last year and there was no danger of eating unhealthy food because I was not hungry once throughout the 12 weeks, the opposite in fact.
