    I've been one of those people

    Working Out After Work.... Can Be a Bad Idea

    I went to work out after a 12 hour night shift at work. I was exhausted but I needed to get it out of the way because I was not going to wake up in enough time to do it before work. I drank an energy drink and got on the treadmill. I was doing just fine but twenty minutes into my...
