Where I go under working stress?
Where I go under working stress?
Prior to present job:I had a regular 9-5 and was able to work out regularly.I was doing 531 with sprints and Lift Heavy Things whenever I was short on time.
Now: I recently got a job working as a bartender, which means late nights. When I work I never go to bed before 3 AM. I don't want to lose sleep so I sleep in whenever I can. I've gotten my sleep pattern down so Im not so tired.
Wishes:I want to go back to working out hard like I used to, but Im concerned that adding extra stress will just mess with my health instead of improving it.
Helps: If anyone has any experience with this kind of situation, I'd really appreciate any advice.

For me I find the time spent working out actually makes me more energetic, so trading some sleep for lifting might not be a bad deal. I actually maintained my lifting schedule during paramedic school and got stronger on minimal sleep.

Start back slowly and let your system adjust before adding to it. The extra strength, conditioning and health will actually help you deal with stress.

first off id listen to your body but how much sleep are you getting, you may be able to give up and hr or two. most people say you need at least 8 hrs but honestly 6 or 7 will be just fine if you get a good nights rest and not waking up every hour. just my opinion

I think that training helps me relax and have a better view on life. I think you should find what works best for you and try to ease back into it. It's all about your priorities and figure out what you want in life and it will sort itself out. (I know I have an odd perspective, but I've learned it over time)

I agree that you need to start slowly. Take it one day at a time and build from that and you should not stress yourself out as much.
