    If you only had 30 minutes

    Hypothetically speaking, if you only had 30 minutes to be at the gym and had no body parts overdue for a workout, what would you do and why? - - - - -

    I am editing this because of the confusion.

    What Im trying to ask is THIS -

    Your at the gym. You realize you only have half an hour. Its leg day if you need an example, and it usually takes you longer than that to do.
    What do you do? go home? cardio instead? lift anyway til you gotta go?

    What do you to kill 30 minutes?


    SHEESH PEOPLE.

    Lifting, I can do a workout in 30 minutes easily. Short rest periods though. Right now I'm definitely in the 45-60 range though because I'm taking 90-120 second rest periods and doing more sets.

    I'd lift. It's the only reason I go to the gym anyway.

    I guess it depends how much of a cardio fiend you are then, so this is probably going to be somewhat seperated by male/female, at least in part.

    I think Id feel like I got the most of it if I do some major cardio.

    Nothing against lifting, but I like to be all sweaty and tired when Im done.

    I like to concentrate when I lift, so it wouldnt do that to me in 1/2 hr...
    ... Im gettin' there!

    If I had no bodyparts scheduled for a work-out, honestly I would not even be there.

    But, if I had to be I guess HIIT cardio, calves and abs.

    I believe what she means is, if you haven't missed a workout and are behind on something.

    In a case like this I would do some type of leg super/giant set work-out in 30 minutes.
