I do moving for a living right now (brutal work) but it pays well. Last week I only managed to squeeze in a bench and squat day. Today I was going to do deads but I'm thinking that it wouldn't be such a wise decision as tomorrow and the coming week will be difficult with work. I need the money for school but I'm really trying to make some decent gains and I really don't see it happening with lifting and moving.
-Anyone else here work a labor intensive job and pl? If so how do you train and work without feeling like complete **** and fatigued every day?

so in the end just workout and do your job. you will probably be super tired but life is all about sacrifices. and hopefully you dont plan on being a mover the rest of your life, so just suck it up now and get it over withFollow me on instagram mcleod209

I work 60+ hours a week, landscaping and firefighting. Usually with one day off a week...I'm trying to cut, but I think my body is keeping the fat...my lifts are still going up though. I usually take NO-explode, helps me with my energy, work get easier the more you train! I'm usually to tired/lazy for cardio though (only once or twice a week)...Get as much sleep as you can as well. Basically, if you want to do it you will.

Try and get plenty of rest when you can, even mid-afternoon naps. Eat plenty (but eat WELL, dont get take out and a bottle of coke because the other labourers are doing it). Also make strategic use of Coffee/Red Bulls/Pre Workout Stimulant Supps for the days when you really feel dead.
other than that, you will get used to it. scale your training back to 2-3 days a week for a while until you can build back upOfficial Rugby training thread: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=107034291
