Defo lack of sleep there - any cause for this you can pinpoint?

I don't know how you all do it. Anything under 7 hours and I'm like a bear with a sore head.

We can't do it, that's why we struggle lol.
 
You've got twins haven't you? I'm amazed you get 7 hours, especially on shift work!

Lol! Good memory mate.
 
I guess it's because I'm a shift worker that I schedule in sleep. For example if I come home and get to bed at 7am I'll sleep at the end of the house with a lock on the door. I'll tell the missus I'll be up at 3pm. Set my alarm, earplugs in, eye patch on and off I go! Sometimes I have to cut it short to help with school runs etc. but I don't make a habit of it.
 
Short changeovers I might get 5-6 hours though, so have to make sure I at least get 8, preferably 9 hours other days/nights to try and catch up. Otherwise it just gets on top of you.

After feeding, bathing, getting kids to sleep, and a few other bits (including warmup/mobility) I got in the gym at about 20:40.

Trained for about an hour, then I needed to sort PWO nutrition and grab a shower.

Then I had to clear up the kitchen from dinner, tidy living room carnage, run hoover round, plus I had some other bits and bobs to get done.

Before you know it it’s gone 11pm and I’m up at 6am for work. By the time I’ve gone to sleep, plus being woken up in the night at least once it’s easily 5.5hr territory.

Geez bud! You are either a single parent then or the other half is working full time as well!
 
Mine is not working so carries part of my share of the chores.

Yeah we both work full time, and my wife’s a solicitor so can work some pretty long hours which doesn’t help!

Same here mate, I train in the evening, by the time I'm done and showered its around 9:30. That's my chance to watch a bit of TV with the Mrs, when she goes to bed, I usually stay up a bit later getting food ready for work etc... So I tend to get around 6-7 hours a night.
 
My kids sleep through most nights now though luckily, although they are early risers. I'm up between 6 and 7 depending on when they wake up, but I work flexible hours which allows me too be less rushed in the morning.
 
Do you train at home then? I would struggle if it wasn't for my garage gym at the moment.

I used to work shifts so now how it can mess with you're body clock, my sleep would be all over the place at times. and that was before I had kids. I would struggle to do shifts now I've gotten used to standard days.

What about external noise such as construction outside etc? Or do you live out in the woods?

Been a while!

Wont bore you with the details of my absence, suffice to say it has involved no lifting, too much drinking and getting fat.

Also, I discovered I have very low T levels, yay 🙄

Plan:

Try and get hold of some gear lol
Start lifting again (basic FB for now)
Lose weight (diet will be based on UD2 - low carb, low cal, structured carb ups)

Hit the mancave on Monday (DOM city today) and played 90 mins of tennis last night. Gym again this evening.
