Any opinions or suggestions?

What is an ideal time to hit the gym considering one holds a regular eight-hour job? Is it advisable to do so before or after one's work schedule?

Whicever you feel would be more ideal to your energy levels.

some people hit the gym in the morning (cardio) to feel refreshed tapos weights sa gabi, i guess it depends on your work sched

I think it's a matter of preference, although I've read that working out close to your sleeping time could cause problems with your sleep because your energy levels are high. Choose whatever works for you.

As Olympus said it really depends on you and whenever you think your energy level is ideal to working out.

Personally I prefer to train in the evenings after all the officework is done. For me mas masarap kasi magworkout ng wala ka ng iintindihin pagkatapos kundi yung pag-uwi mo na lang at kung anung kakainin mo pagdating mo sa bahay. It allows me to give all my energy to the workout and push myself as hard as i can.

May mga tao din namang mas gusto magworkout muna bago pumasok sa office dahil nakakaenergize naman or nakakareferesh magpapawis for them before the office day begins. This does not apply to me though. I think I'd be too 'tired' or too 'sleepy' to work after a session in the gym.

i found that doing roadwork early in the morning, and doing your workout later in the day works well for me. doing roadwork at night sucks.

cardio - before work or upon waking up
weights and post weights cardio - after work/shift

my energy level is up during the evening so i prefer to do weights during this time. also, less time is needed for warming up the muscles since ive been moving a lot during the morning.

Ako nung evening shift ako, after work, dun ako nag ggym, pero i can no longer lift heavy sets as advised by my PT. Mahirap daw pumwersa kc wala pa akong tulog.
Nung nagaaral pa ako, usually before going to school, matching pahilot ng mga kumikirot na muscles sa ex-gf ko...
hehehehe!

Yup. Mas masarap tlaga ang roadwork sa umaga. The air seems cleaner, the scenery no matter how many times u've seen it seems awash anew. And you've just woken up, the sweat and the ensuing rush of endorphins is a nice way to begin the day.

The only exception to doing roadwork at night is if you live in a place where the pollution is almost non-existent

I would have to strongly AGREE with you once again. That also works for me. Road work is ALWAYS a must for me during mornings,..and gym or skill specific training at night or late afternoons :)
