RE: Lifter's Lounge
I used to do morning time, but I do evening since I'm braindead after lifting. I try to really hammer the body part I'm working on. I usually lift as a reward to myself for being diligent in some other area. I am addicted so I'll go no matter what. I use it as a lever now.

I do both depending on the day. Weekends I do morning. Week I do evening. I'm stronger in the evening.

How long have you been lifting? I remember feeling the same way around for the first 3 or so years. I would love to recapture that feeling, even though I love lifting as it is now.

Can you speak a little more to this?

I'm definitely stronger in the evening as well, and it's probably no coincidence I've hit all my PRs in the evening. Do you deliberately save PRs and heavy sets for evening workouts?

RE: Lifter's Lounge
I'm about 6 years deep, give or take. I've still got aesthetic and strength goals I want to hit, so I'm always angling to achieve them. I'm really itching to put on another 10-20 pounds of muscle.

I imagine it's different for guys with 10+ years in the gym.

I tend to obsess over hobbies that I have. It's a blessing and a curse. Given enough exposure to things I enjoy I always begin to grind at them. I try to apply this to shit I don't naturally find easy such as meditation and running and such. I imagine the formula is something like

Time + Intent = addiction

Turning lifting into a lever:

Let's say I'm planning to train at 7pm but I need to do cardio that day. I fucking hate cardio, so I'll do my running before I train and if I'm satisfied with my performance I'll go to the gym. If I do at least 80% of what I said I was going to do then I'll eat and hit the gym from 7 to whenever I please.

I think this works for me since I feel a real urge to train. For some, the carrot is food, pussy, video games, BJJ or whatever. Gotta find out what you enjoy enough to put yourself through hell for and work with it.

I don't follow a strict program so I hit PRs whenever I'm feeling real good. Usually it just turns out in the evening. I do my heavy push and legs in the evening. My heavy pull day I do on the weekend because I have more time. I do Olympic Lifts on my evening pull day and that is plenty for me. If I'm ever feeling good on a random day I'll just go for it and take advantage of it.
