Being in the gym is being at home.
Being at the gym 24/7, well as close to 24/7 with sufficient time allowed for sleep, would be the absolute dream. Sadly for those who are not professional bodybuilders, this dream is far from reality. Just as you must ensure your body has enough calories and nutrients for optimal muscle growth, so a bank balance has to be grown to ensure you can continue to buy the food, memberships and gear required to continue your passion. And so enters the job. For some, this may include physical labour and be a workout in itself – and kudos to you – but for many this means a sedentary office existence, diminishing gains even as they are earnt in after-work gym sessions.
This needn’t be entirely the case though and, with a little ingenuity, time spent in the office can help keep your fitness ticking over. Below are some tips to keeping your condition up, even as you spend your time lifting phones and not weights.
