Hey guys,
I was wondering what everyone's day to day schedule is like. What time you wake up, train, head to work, eat, etc.

Bobby. I wake up every morning around 5:50 to 6:00 am. Drink some water and do some light stretching warm-up exercises to wake my body up. I usually start the WOD by 6:45am. Complete the WOD by 7:10 (depends on the WOD). Shower and hit the road by 8:25am. Work starts at 9:00am. Get off work about 5:00pm and go to BJJ at 7:45pm Tues/Wed/Thurs & Sat at 10:30am. I pack all my lunches for the day the night before (bring cooler to work) and usually make my breakfast after the WOD every day. Of course things come up being in the military and I can't always keep this routine but this is the ideal. I operate like this at around 90% of the time.

I do the WOD when ever I have time. Sometimes this is in the morning, most of the time this is in the evening.

7am get up eat got to work
5pm get off job #1 go to teaching M.A. job
5:30pm warm up and start teaching
9pm stop teaching start work outs
11:30pm go home
12:30pm go to sleep.

This is my schedule about 80% of the time.

I work from home so it is easier to put the WOD in:

8:00 wake up and eat then start work
around 10 or so I work out then have some lunch
in the afternoon I take my son to martial arts and I use the spare mats for handstand and other gymnastics practice
Three to four nights per week I have my own classes (Jui Sool Do and Brazilian Jui Jitsu) or open mat.
Bedtime is when I am tired - between 10 and midnight. I notice that when I have worked out extremely hard I like to go to sleep earlier.
On weekends I add in hiking, archery, escrima, and other fun things.

This is very rough as my schedule tends to be pretty flexible.

Jeez, Lynne, that's about 5 hours sleep / night!

My own schedule (most days):

- Wake about 5:30 - 5:45
- Coffee, walk dog, breakfast about 6:30
- Drive daughter to school (about 7:30), drive to gym
- Do the WOD (warmup, workout, supplemental work, shower) between 8 and 9 a.m. most days . . . if I don't get it in then, it doesn't get done.
- Get to work about 9:15 (gym is close to work)
- Work until about 7, 8, or 9 p.m. (somewhat variable)
- Drive home, snack, walk the dog again (about 9:30 p.m.)
- Bed between 10:30 and 11:30

Hey Dave,
Great to have you back! Yep, 5 hrs on a good night...I'd really be happy with 6 or 7 but that just doesn't happen. I've been "enjoying" this schedule since Sept 01 and no signs of it changing for the next few years. ;^(

For many, Crossfit has illustrated how varying workout routine and stimuli can have profound effects on physical fitness levels. Is there any evidence that indicates benefits can be derived from, consistently or on occasion, changing the TIME OF DAY that somebody works out?

Ryan , my sched ule varies but fairly predictably. I awaken at 4:25 and either exercise at home or go to the gym on average 3 days per week. I catch the other sessions either in the pm, occasionally at lunch or during the day if it is a weekend or on my day off during the week. I need more sleep than Ms. Pitts so I try to alternate the 4:25 with the more decent hour of 6 am. I eat breakfast and leave the house at either 6:45 or & depending on the kids school schedule. I generally work from 7:30 to 6 pm.I snack at 10 am try to eat lunch about 1pm and snack again about 4pm. Dinner varies depending on the kids sport schedules etc. Try to get about 7 hours of sleep, an occasional nap etc..I feel that I definitely can do a little better on the " metabolic killer " workouts when I have been up and about for a few hours, I dont know if this is due to sleep factors or just the fact that I'm working on my second half century.
