Do it. There's nothing quite like the feel of that new, hard shaft in your hand.

Let's challenge the following ineffective thoughts that keep you from exercising:

I know I should exercise but I hate it so I just can't seem to make myself do it. Many people have negative feelings about exercise, as can be heard by the use of words like shouldhate and make myself. These thoughts and feelings come from negative past experiences like being chosen last for teams, boring exercise routines, and discomfort or pain from doing too much too fast. Some people only exercise when they are trying to lose weight so they have come to think of exercise as a punishment for their overeating. However, this time you can find fun physical activities that suit your personality and lifestyle. You can start slowly and allow your body to adjust gradually so it is not uncomfortable. You can choose to focus on all the great things it does for you and how wonderful you feel instead of how much weight you should lose.

I don't have time. It will only take 1/48th of your whole day to exercise for 30 minutes and most people waste a lot more time than that on unproductive activities like watching TV! Being physically active is more important for your health and well-being than most of the other things you think must get done each day. The key is giving it the priority that it deserves.

I don't have the energy. No matter how you feel initially, you are likely to feel better within just a few minutes of starting to exercise. These good feelings usually last long after the exercise is finished too. Exercise increases your strength and stamina, and helps you sleep better so you will become more productive and feel great. So even when you feel tired, commit to exercising for at least ten minutes. Promise yourself that you can stop and try again another day if you still aren't feeling any better. Most of the time you will feel so good that you will want to continue.

Yeah in order to become doc they require us to take 4 years of literature, basketweaving, calculus, horticulture, and a bunch of other useless shit so we can have a nice base of student loans to build our debt mountain off of.

The way it is here is they do first year health sciences and then the most competitive ones get in.

I used to do a fair bit of teaching med students in undergraduate labs. My impression was that the overwhelming majority of them did not understand even basic concepts of natural selection or other core ideas in biology, but were awesome at getting the marks anyway.

It's probably not a bad idea to have people do a bit of learning-for-learning's sake.

Although I do sympathize about the debt.

I'm currently bulking and running a decently high volume 3 days a week push/pull/legs split. Wanna incorporate one day of cardio (sprints or low intensity running) and one day for prehab and bodyweight stuff (dips, pullups, pistol squats, etc).

Thinking of laying it out like this:
Day 1 - legs
Day 2 - push
Day 3 - rest
Day 4 - pull
Day 5 - prehab and bodyweight lifts
Day 6 - cardio
Day 7 - rest
Repeat

What do you think? Too much work?

I have a good idea for a quick, once a day workout AND IT ONLY TAKES 3 MINUTES!

Step 1: Do barbell squats for 3 minutes straight

I feel like you could combine push/pull/BW lifts into one day, and legs/prehab work into another... maybe cut down the volume or alternate exercises and hit everything twice a week. Not sure what kind of cardio you are doing but maybe hit something up in the mornings, fasted. Different strokes for different folks but that's been working for me, could be worth a shot.
