Agreed. I train at lunch time when I am at home and usually at night when I am on the road (which is about 50-60% of the time). I *prefer* training at lunch because I can IF until then, train and then eat like a king for a few hours. Training after IF'ing until 6 or 7 PM is harder and I usually eat lunch that day so I don't get all light headed.

But again, that falls into the over thinking it category and most people just need to start lifting and then fuck with all the parameters to dial stuff in. Getting started seems to be the hardest part for most people.
People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.
