No-one wants to spend their entire life in the gym. If you do, you’re sad. The world is full of wonderful magical things to do. Exercise is one of them but it’s just that, only one. To make the most of your time in the gym you need to get in, work hard and get out. Don’t skimp on stretching though, or I’ll judge you.
Mix and match your exercises in quick succession to get a great workout in minimum time. My favourite gym sessions are where I don’t fulfil regimented sets of exercises but rather do one set of something, then another thing, then back to something else…until I’m knackered. Here’s tonights gym session to give you a bit of inspiration, in case you’re lacking.
(Not really a circuit, but has the same principle of whizzing around doing a whole bunch of different things. Before you pick me up on it)

40 KB cleans, 20 on each side
50 KB swings

I tried to run up the stairs after this and fell over. On the stairs. In the gym. Shame but also glory.
Listening to this, because inside every budding lawyer/fitness ger is a 15 year old emo trying to get out.
