Worked out twice a day for a week: Benefits I noticed

I worked out twice a day for this entire week, with the exception of Wednesday. By an entire week I mean from Last Saturday to this Saturday which was yesterday. This was a total of 2-3 hours of lifting a day. There are certain benefits that I noticed. First is that it boosts your metabolism. Secondly, you are able to eat more because you burn off more calories. Third, I got way better sleep and felt way more rested. I struggle with insomnia and sleeping issues so being able to sleep well as a gift to me. Overall, a great idea and it is also a great way to keep weight off because you are burning off more calories and therefore don't have to worry about overeating. Now going to the gym twice a day doesn't give you the excuse to eat 10 McDonald's cheeseburgers. But you can eat more flexible if you are burning off more calories. I know that not everyone can do this because we all have school, work and many other things that keep us busy. But if you have a day off or a few days off I would recommend trying this because you will notice the benefits. I did this mainly because I was off for Thanksgiving break the entire week and I had the free time to do this. If you don't like working out, than I wouldn't recommend this. This is specifically for the workout junkies. One thing you also need to make sure of is that you don't work out the same body parts on the same day. So if you are doing arms in the morning, make sure you do legs in the afternoon. Maybe add in some cardio if you want to. Make sure you also are careful with this because working out twice in one day can increase your risk of getting injured. Also, be prepared to feel more fatigued throughout the day. Overall, I think this is a good thing to try if you have the time and are up for it.
