    Hi,

    Working in engineering positions can occupy much time of your day, and many times you get back home too tired to work out..

    I was wondering, when do you find time to work out?

    At morning before getting to work?
    Doesn't it make you being tired/hungry during work?

    What kind of workouts you have?

    Well, I don't work out. I didn't know it was obligatory...
    Beerbelly has started to declare its presence in the last months though, so for starters I have stopped using the elevator. I use the stairs up to the 6th floor to my apartment. I sometimes also jog my way to subway stations and other relatively short distances.
    I hope to get myself a good bit of exercise in the summer vacations.

    Well, when you're young and single, you don't have much choice but to stay in shape

    There's always a choice... blue pill or red pill?

    That is a good "free" trick to stay in shape. When you are shopping, parking the car in the other end of the parkinglot, is another way of getting a workout. Especially if you have a lot of heavy bags.

    Sometime I jog/run for 30 min before work, but often I jog/run after work. Then I have better time. Usually from 45 - 60 minutes.

    When it's not vacation/hollydays, I'm at the gym Monday and Wednesday. From 17:45 - 19:30. Kickboxing. :)

    30 years ago I jogged. After the knees and feet started protesting, I started walking to work (it was only a couple of miles each way, so it wasn't terribly strenuous). Now my main exercise is jumping to conclusions, stabbing people in the back, and running in circles. :p

    Me too, but I'm trying to stop and think before the jump. :)

    I work at a desk from 8 to 5, but almost always manage to get outside and walk from 12 to 1, sometimes running errands, sometimes just walking a big loop around the neighborhood. Nothing strenuous, but it's a great break from desk work.

    Lots of my fellow programmers just sit at their desks 9, 10 hours at a time; I don't see how they can do it. I'd go nuts.

    I used to climb oil rig derricks with tool bags so I got my workout on the job. stayed in good shape. got married and quit the globetrotter job; now I work in a plant and my only exercise involves transporting my ever increasing weight across horizontal surfaces. I am quickly becoming rotund. When you find a good time to work out, let me know; maybe I can work it into my schedule as well.
