Ok....sorry sometimes posting replies doesnt work... so I respond individually.
I'm happy to know that I'm not the only one who's body is not responsive to lifting heavy shit in the morning.
I was training in between 8pm - 10pm or 10pm-12am night. This truly is my peak performance time. Then I would go home, feeling really great about myself, and super frigging AWAKE. Hence, staying up until 4am. I've been fighting my circadian rythem or whatever for 3-4 months burning both ends of the candle, which doesnt help my performance in the gym or the lab.
There's no way I could get up at 5am and take 3 hours to roll on foam and take alternating showers. This would be ideal, but I don't have the time, unfortunately. Ramping is what I've been doing in the morning, but still never can get to my max, even if I take 45min to get there and shower/jog. I guess there's no short cuts in this game, huh? It's just really surprising to me because I didn't think time of day would make THIS MUCH of a difference!!!
But if thats how it is for a lot of people, ce la vie. I'll do all the really hard stuff on Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun, and try to go Tuesday morning or something and fuck off on Monday and Wednesday.
Thanks for reading my post. Any other ideas are very welcome!
