Just because we care about our health, doesn’t mean we can’t joke around about some of the gym life struggles! So, I put together 31 thoughts we’ve probably all had during a workout at some point or another.

There are countless myths and theories about whether or not you should eat breakfast before a workout, and that one may be more beneficial than the other. Some say working out on an empty stomach helps to burn more fat. But, what really happens inside of your body?
As someone who has been studying exercise science and human physiology in university for a few years now, I’m able to come to a conclusion about this issue. Without getting too in depth, the following information (backed up by science!) will enlighten you about the processes your body goes through when you eat and when you don’t eat before you exercise. Should you eat before a workout to burn fat quicker? We’ll answer this below. If you’re in a rush to find out, scroll down to The Final Verdict. 🙂

So, if you’re wondering if HIIT is the type of workout for you, keep reading!
