I Worked Out In The Middle Of The Day and Loved It

What is the best time of day to exercise? Is it in the morning before you go to work or in the evening when you leave work? Most people prefer one or the other but seldom do I hear or see people working out in the middle of the day.

Now I know that’s not possible for most people because they’re working in the middle of the day but let me tell you, I recently did it and I felt better than I have ever felt in my life.

What Did I Do?

I’m glad you asked. I really didn’t do anything different than I normally would. It was my day to do shoulders and biceps and little cardio, so that’s what I did. I didn’t change anything about the workout or go against the grain, but for some reason it gave me a different feeling. I felt more alive, I had more energy and I seemed to have taken some type of super drug.

Now like most people that frequent the gym or workout on a regular basis, I’m accustomed to getting that feeling that comes from the release of endorphins. I also know what it feels like to miss a couple weeks and try to get back into the swing of things, but that’s another topic. What I’m trying to say is that this was new and kind of weird.

What Was That?

So right now I’m trying to figure out what in the world that was. If I could I would workout in the middle of the day more often, but like many other people, I have to work and my schedule doesn’t usually allow it. But I promise you this, when I am able to exercise in the middle of the day, I’m going to take advantage of it.


I will be doing some research on this and as soon as I find out what this was, I’ll make sure and blog about it.

If you know what causes…I don’t know, extra endorphins to release (that’s what I’m going to say it was) from working out during the middle of the day, please leave me a comment.

How To Get More Confidence

How To Get More Confidence

How to get more confidenceThere is no better way to boost confidence than to start working out.  There is something about being active that makes you feel better physically as well as emotionally.  It doesn’t take a lot to make a difference.  Simply going for a walk in the neighborhood will give you a boost and help you feel like you can conquer the world.

As your fitness level increases, so will your confidence.  Have you ever seen a really muscular man or women walking around the grocery store like the place belonged to them?  Many people look at them as if they are weird but they are actually walking with a confidence that is out of this world.

That’s not to say that you need to try and be a bodybuilder, it’s just an example of the confidence that people have that obviously workout.  When we workout, endorphins are released and it makes us feel better.  It’s similar to a drug, but in a positive way.  Some people get a bigger endorphin release from resistance training while other may get it from cardio training.  It may require a combination of both for other people to get their fix, if you know what I mean.

Find out which workouts work best for you and gauge it by how you feel.  Once you find that thing that makes you feel like a million bucks, you will be more inclined to continue.  As your fitness level increases, explore different workouts and go to different locations.  You and your body deserve it.
