I have no clue. I'm gonna say it has to be a mix of dedication/insomnia/ and no girlfriend at home.

To get into really good physical condition takes a little of both, regardless of the time that you train. To me the 3am signifies either insomnia, or night shift.

This is more like it. I work from 4:30 to 4:00. Gym too packed after work. Its completely empty that early.

So it's just the opposite of a late shift, you work the early shift, and workout before work.

Yep, no matter how early I get to bed, it's never early enough. Like Stangyn, 9 pm is about the latest I'm up. On work days I crash about 8.

I'm still new to all this (just under a month of dedicated exercises/workouts) but since I've been doing this daily workout, I can't stay awake past 8-8:30 unless I force myself, and can NOT sleep past 5am. I feel great mid-way through each day but tired and burned out from about 4pm til bedtime again.

I'm willing to bet I'm doing something wrong with my diet/nutrition that's got my body all backwards though.

and to get back on topic, I'm willing to bet it's more dedication with sleeplessness that's bringing you to the gym at 3am (if that's outside the realm of normalcy for you)

After reading the thread I'd say mainly dedication w/ a bit of obsession, but you need both to function in that situation correctly.

Earliest I can get into gym is 5:30am because the bastards don't open until then. That and the girlfriend would get pissed if I fell asleep at 9pm every night
