they make me go to the gym every other day for 3 hours. when I tell them I have a mock I need to seriously revise for, they don't care and force me to do even more gym! they have FRICKING HIGH expectations of me. they want me to go to Cambridge for medicine yet they make me go to the gym for 9 hours every week and I have very little time for revision. I tell them it is either I go to the gym, or I go to Cambridge (hopefully). I may be a little fat and I am sorting that out with healthy foods. my parents think it is 90% gym and 10% diet when actually it is the opposite way around. I am seriously worried about my GCSEs and if I don't get a 9, they will disown me. I have targets of 8 and 9 but of course, you need to put in the revision.

Tell them to choose: A fit son or a son who goes to Cambridge. Which appeals the most to them? They can't be so difficult with this.

Tell them you are tired of their BS expectations and either they choose one or you will do what is the best for yourself. You ain't no Leonardo da vinci so they gotta understand your capacity.

Very bizarre. If t hey control what you eat, surely they could just give you less food if they think you're overweight. Sorry you're having a tough time.
Maybe you can listen to audio notes while you work out or have a calm discussion with your parents. Maybe present some facts about nutrition>exercise.

If all else fails, 9 hrs is still a relatively short amount of time and with effective time management you should be able to get enough time to revise, particularly with the Easter holidays approaching.

they wont let me have any protein shakes or stuff like that so pretty much every day i have really sore muscles from the 3 hr intense workouts. i can understand going to the gym BUT NOT FOR THAT LONG. they used to make me wake up 6am on a school day every other day and go to the gym. i am the only one there. thankfully staff noticed and banned me from going during the mornings on school days but that was a long time ago and now new staff has come and we are going back to the "old roots"

please, this is serious I have cried many times because of this and it is because of girls like you who expect every man to be ripped, smart, Cambridge student etc... IT IS HARD FOR US MEN because of the dreams you girls call realistic about how men should be. i don't like how you are trying to joke around. it sounds fricking stupid

3 hrs every other day is a bit excessive (one of the most effective forms of cardiovascular activity is HIIT which can be done in 10minutes!)

However if you're revising to the point where you can't fir anything else in then you are revising too much. Especially seeing as they're only mocks. And as for Cambridge, flawless grades don't guarantee you'll get in. I know people who applied with 13 A*s and got an interview but not an offer. They're looking for more than just grades- they want impressive students and that includes things OUTSIDE of school as well.

Exercise can actually help with brain power so exercising every other day could help you with your revision and give you a break. Stop working yourself into the ground, if you exhaust yourself you are more likely to underperform
