I figured I would post it in here since I usually train like a powerlifter. I am needing some advice on how to be able to train while mentally and physically exhausted.
I have never had an issue lifting before with school and a busy schedule but this time I am having some difficulty..
Right now I am in EMT school which runs 9-5; Monday-Friday; for 5 weeks; and an exam on 4-7 chapters every two days. On top of that I am taking 4 online classes at my college. I wake up at 7 AM and on average with all the homework and studying I usually fall asleep as early as 1:30 AM and as late as 4. I usually have an hour or two of free time between class and when I start my homework.
My only problem is I am pretty burnt out during that time period and pretty much use it to relax and reboot. Caffeine or stimulant use is out because I am already on a pretty decent amount to stay awake as it is, and anymore my actually do harm since my blood pressure has been a tad high lately. It had as high as 160 over 98; but on average 140-148 over 90-95.
Any ideas on something else I could do would be greatly appreciated to help me keep lifting; It has already been a month. On a side note I do lift two days on the weekend.
