    How do you train at the minute? If you do that is. Be good to know as it would give an idea on current exertion/recovery etc

    A break down of your shifts would help. Also, how active is your lifestyle? Do you have have kids, housework, shopping, etc?
     
    The idea of hitting the gym during a 60 hour week wouldn't work for me, I have too much else to do.

    Hi,
    43 year old ,6 til 6 shifts,i train with lot of common sense ie busy heavy day alter routine to suit or wait and rest,thing is a lot of the young uns at our work wont listen to this old un(in their eyes) and are wanting to train flat out but cant understand why their seeing no gains,just thought if they have something to read on how other folk would go about it they might find it interesting and stop them going down the steroid route due to impatience,kids who,d ave em lol.

    Look at your manual work as a part of your training, then fill in any gaps with the gym work, ie if you were digging roads for example you probably wouldn't need to train your back, although you might need to focus on legs more in the gym.
