I'm so glad I work in a gubberment job that has a gym downstairs. That's such an underrated perk.

Haven't missed a day of working out since college (going on 5 years this November). It's a point of pride.


That tall and only 155? Sheesh, idk if I would enjoy being that skinny. But major props to your dedication

What do you do with your suit? Put it in a backpack?

Leave it at work, presumably, or drop it at the dry cleaners.

Having trouble imagining a legitimate exercise you could do like this. Do you lie down on your desk and bench?

What if you don't wear a suit to work every day?

Theoretically, you are probably still wearing some kind of work attire, like slacks and a nice shirt, and maybe loafers and a blazer - you still need to switch into separate work attire. Its also difficult to leave it at the office because then you have more and more piles of clothes accumulating there :(

Standing shoulder press.

You can also do presses with exercise bands wrapped around the back of your chair.

I can't believe I have to walk you through this. Roll your pants so they don't wrinkle. Put the shoes and shirt in the bag. Don't wear a jacket on days you're planning on running home.

Like, this is not hard to think of how it's possible. It's probably more difficult to do in the winter, but where there is a will there is a way, my friend.
