Shift Worker

well, i started this new job about a month ago. and i work shifts(first time i ever did)and my workouts are seriously suffering.can anyone offer sugestions on how to get back on track?it’s screwed up my eating,i’ve lost 20 pounds this month. and sleep is another problem, let alone going to the gym. thanks

What is your schedule then? What shifts do you work? How many a week ect…need some more info brother.

Your body takes some time to adapt to a changing schedule. You need to get used to it first. I would suggest backing off the exercising for a week or 2. Make sure you have absolute darkness for sleeping. A blackout blind is great for that.
