So a couple days a week, I end up working these shifts that end up being 12 hours long. 8 of those hours are sedentary, but the next 4 are on my feet and I end up walking 11-15000 steps by the end of the day.
I am aiming to hit the gym 6 days a week, 5 with weights and 1 heavy cardio, and 1 rest day. I took my rest day yesterday on my first 12 hour shift.
I end up sleeping like crap on the long shift days because I'm just not a morning person, and these end up starting early.
I want to go to the gym. But I'll probably get there after 10, and I don't know if I'll have the energy to do the full sets of Back, Biceps and Forearms that I have planned. Certainly not to the weight that I am pushing.
So on these days where you are mentally fatigued, haven't slept well, and in my case, am in a rather substantial calorie deficit, how do you handle the gym? Do you just try to do one solid set on everything or something?... Coffee?
Let me know what you do!
