Where do you train and how much do you pay for your subscriptions?

I hear that Gyms like California Fitness and Planet Fitness have a high level of flexibility to their membership plans.... very true?

It depends on how you train. I also train 5 times a week when I'm over in UK and my hostel has a gym.

For such intensity traning, usually I'll be in the gym for ~45mins.
Monday : Chest / Biceps / Forearms / Wrist
Tuesday : Back / Triceps
Wednesday : Rest Day
Thursday : Shoulders /Abomen
Friday : Legs
Saturday : Running / Cycling
Sunday : Rest Day

And with these major muscles groups, I'll just rotate and mix-match.

How true! Bodybuilding is just 3 things:- Serious exercises, sensible diet and adequate rest. Sure to grow muscles. If any of these are lacking, the muscles will not grow as anticipated.

Oh, NitroTech, are you working as a full-time professional sleeper? 8 hours of sleep a day is a luxury! How to apply? :p

Huh, what social life? :D

You have gym equipment in your home?
Hey, I also woke up at around 5am. I'll just pop down to my hostel's gym and spend 45mins exercising, before starting the day. That usually freashen up my day. :D

Maybe cos u were still studying, and the gym is easily accessible. But for others who are working, 5 times a week to the gym is seriously reducing alot of time for our social life, especially if u dont live anywhere near the gym. I'd say twice or thrice a week should be sufficient.

At one point, I was into serious bodybuilding. But now, I do it more for maintaining the shape. It really take commitments and discipline. I have sets of dumb-bells in Singapore and in my hostel in UK. I even have a few sets in my brother's home in US!

Ok, I do agreed that 5 times a week is quite difficult for gym-ers who don't live/work near gym. But definitely working out 5 times a week is possible, and that's what prompt me to reply to your thread. Anyway, it still boils down to commitment and discipline.
:D

I'm working. And the gym is near my work place which is NOT near my home. Yeah, it does eat into my social life (but i did manage to psycho my gf to work out with me:) ) so I make the best use of my weekends!! :thumbsup:
