    This is to the guys that workout early in the morning. If you go to the gym early, do you take a shower before the gym and again afterwards? Or do you go to the gym dirty and shower afterwards?

    I'm asking because I shower before because when I don't take a shower, and then sweat, I smell horrible. Then I take a shower afterwards again. So I shower once before and once after. Does everyone do that or do you go the gym smelling like shit?

    Most of the time I will take a quick 30sec cold shower to shock myself awake. Otherwise my ass is dragging.

    Same here. Though I never shower at the gym. Shower first thing in the morning when I wake up. Then when I get home from the gym. And then at night. Sometimes if I go to the gym twice, add one more shower.

    Now in terms of hygiene... do you wash your hands when going to the washroom before or after or both. This while working out. I used to do after only... but now its both. Considering your touching barbells and dumbells that tons of people get their hands on...
    You know what they say... "If you don't wash your hands before you pee, everyone that has touched the same barbell you were using, has given you a handjob.";)

    Only after. On my off days sometimes I don't even shower. I just store up putrid existence to be cleansed after my next workout. This works out alright since I have no life and I don't have more than one off day at a time.

    I sweat like a whore in church even when I'm asleep, washing my sheets gets to be annoying sometimes.
