This isn’t really “training” related, but the topic will probably affect my training at some point.
Here’s what I need help with:
I wake up at 3am, and deliver newspapers until 5:30 (pays pretty well, otherwise I wouldn’t be waking up at such an ungodly hour). I go lift till 7am, come home, shower and eat, and then go work a construction job from 8-5. I come home, eat dinner, and do schoolwork and chores. I don’t do much on weekday nights. I usually get to bed around 9. I know 8-9 hours is the “sweet spot” but that’s tough for me to get, as getting to bed around 6pm-7pm is pretty much impossible, and I need the money I get from the newspapers.
I don’t feel super tired most days, but I do have days where I’m exhausted.
Any ideas or opinions regarding my sleep schedule? Is 6 hours enough? This isn’t permanent - I’ll be quitting the construction job for a much easier one with shorter hours sometime this summer. Any supplements that would help providing I start feeling like crap? Any good foods that would help with anything? Any tips at all? Just stick it out until I’m done with the job?
