I'll be hitting the gym at GW.  Its the only thing that has kept me sane through undergrad and I am hoping it serves a similar purpose in law school.  Besides, the GW gym is about 100 times bigger and nicer than what I'm coming from.

As a 2L, I can report that most do not, and those that do enjoy being big fish in a small pond. Same with the hot girls. There are only 5-6 hot girls in a given class and their status is artificially inflated to an obscene level due to the slim pickings.



So do the weight-lifting guys and hot girls stick to themselves then?   ;)

I will probably continue to lift weights in law school.  It may just be more a matter of maintaining where I am rather than trying to make drastic changes.

As a personal trainer I suppose I will be in the minority as well.   ;)  With all the stress of law school how can people afford NOT to work out?? Then again only about a 1/4 of the general population works out regularly (more than 4 times a week). One thing I love about the Bay Area, you cant drive down the street without seeing someone jogging, biking, skating ect. It's a great reminder and motivation.   ;D

No pain = no pain.

Wow, my dad used to tell me that during my swimming days =)

I will definitely continue to workout... I caught the triathlon bug a year ago and have always been involved in intense sports, so I think I'd go crazy without working out!  Plus you can read while you work out (sometimes)... change of scenery =)

I worked out a lot the first semester, because it really took the edge off.  After a while, though, you just get used to the stress (if you can handle it.  If you can't, you continue to work out.)  Then the gym wasn't as appealing.  I tell myself every day to go back, and then just head into the library.

Funny, I was going to post a thread similiar to this one...

I hope to continue to work out, at least the cardio stuff if not weights as often as I have time for now...

We are all getting older, metabolism slowing...working out is important hehe

I hope to work out harder in law school.  I figure it should be easier than now because now I am working 50+ hours a week.  The school I am going to attend has a great gym.  The thing I am most concerned about is my meals.  I try and eat every two hours.  Anybody have any ideas on that?

Eating every two hours is always hard.  Maybe try taking snacks to classes?

Most law schools have a fridge, microwave, etc for the students. I pack a couple sandwiches for my long days and will often supplement that with a Clif Bar or something equally portable and easy to stick in my bag.

Avoid the free pizza at every student org meeting. You will get fat enough from the stress and alcohol.

For those looking for some good nutritional advice, I am a huge fan of the Abs Diet program from the Men's Health editors. http://www.amazon.com/Abs-Diet-Six-Week-Flatten-Stomach/dp/1594862168/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-5094299-0598468?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1174874679&sr=8-1
I was a four year collegiate athlete with a minor in sports science (not the most impressive credential but I'll hang my hat where I can) and the methodology of the book is sound & easy to follow.
