What... don't I? I'm fairly certain I do... Theres really only one way to find out.
But on the working out topic: I work out at my buddies free gym every other day. Its been kind of slack lately, but then again I am a carpenter and get my share of exercise every day at work anyways. I find that a) If I'm not working out with someone else, then I don't stay motivated nearly as long, and b) I like to do a full on, serious, sweat-it-all-out, feel-the-pain kind of workout. Thats the only way I enjoy it enough to keep going back. Plus if I can feel the soreness, I at least feel like somethings working.
FYI, you shouldn't work out every day. Or if you do, you need to alternate what muscles you're working to ensure that you're not taxing the same muscle every day. If you don't give a heavily worked muscle a day of rest, it wont build the proper mass that you're requesting of it. Its fine to do cardio as much and as often as you want. What you're eating is also very very important. Working out uses a whole lot of energy and you should definatly look into what and when you should be eating to supply it.
But for now I'm going to do some bicep curls... I think a Sleeman Honey Brown Lager is the ideal weight for the evening.
