If you try and get by on such a small amount of sleep, every area of your life is going to suffer, especially your training. Is there any way you could find a gym close to your office and work out on your lunch break? That’s one option.
You probably have weekends off right? Another thing you can do is train on the weekends at the gym, and train at home the rest of the time. Try a program where you only have to train three or four times a week. When my husband ended up with an equally bad schedule last year, we bought him an adjustable bench, a bar, two spin-lock dumbbell handles, and plates that could be interchanged between both for under $350Cdn. If you look second hand, you can probably find a good deal. It’s not a perfect solution, and there might be a noise factor to consider if you live in an apartment, but to me the schedule you are thinking of is just going to burn you out.
There is a gym right across the street but it’s the middle of the Village. I’m thinking Soy Protein and Pink tu-tu’s here. It’s a NYSC so I’m thinking it’s got to be top dollar.
I usually spend about 3 hours in the gym because I like to take advantage of the whirpool, sauna and steamroom. A usual training session usually goes for about 1:15 to 1:30. I think I would feel too constricted if I tried to get a session in during my lunch hour. I may have to think about training before or after work (which gets into the rest thing if I don’t do it right).
I am hoping that there is some sort of corporate discount that would make this choice easier. My current gym has alot of ammenities (pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam room, tanning) and it’s pretty cheap ($39 month).
A home gym isn’t an option right now. I don’t have the cash or the space right now.
