I find that the work that I do with the hours I put in at times hinders my goal and makes it hader for me to stay motivated. And since there are times I had to work overtime on the days I plan to hit the gym, this gets me sidetracked that I thought about finding a different job that can juggle my hours with work and gym time...

I got cut to 32 hours a week six months ago, and it makes buying supplements and groceries difficult, but I love the time off on Fridays. Though the paychecks are crappy, I turned down an opportunity to make three times as much mostly because it would require me to live out of hotel rooms and put in 50-60 hours every week.

I usually work 55+ hours a week (5X10's and 1/4 day Saturday) and still go to the gym almost every day. I don't do a full body workout that I'd sometimes like to do, but over the course of a week I get through all the muscle groups and at least one, sometimes 2 dedicated cardio workouts. You only get out of (fill in the blank) what you put into it. Best wishes.

I currently work 3 jobs - 2 'full-time' (one of which is shift work with shifts anywhere from 8 to 16 hrs per shift) and one part time/ casual.
I mod on three internet boards.
I have a family I make sure to see every week.

.... And I train about 6 days a week for ~ 2 hrs a day.



Life is about priorities... If you want something bad enough - you'll make it happen. ;)

I am a soldier. I'm currently deployed and since there's not a lot to do in my free time I go to the gym. I work 12 hours a day and usually I can find time to slip away to the gym for a couple of hours during my shift. When I get out of the Army, I will be going back to school full time, so I will have to find a way to balance everything because I don't want my grades to slip but I don't want to lose all the progress I've made either.

Navy, Aviation electronics technician. Semi-fun job. Work on radar, IFF(identify friend or foe) etc. for an aircraft called the Hawkeye ( double prop plane with a big ol disc on top of it). I work 0645-1600 M-F and have duty on the weekends once a month. Not really that strenuous to be honest, much more lax than Army or Marines. But then again, I don't deploy until October-ish. Don't know for sure, plus, loose lips sink ships, you will never know! I just get in good nutrition at work and most the time I am so hyped up to go to the gym I just rock it out and get home and relax. I base my diet and pretty much my lifestyle around the gym and being able to get my full potential because I have no patience, and I want it now. Plus my signature quote always gets me going.

Waiter/Bartender. Generally work right around 35-40 hours every week. Usually gassed by the time I come home, plus I have to "deal" with my 20 month old daughter who has 10x as much energy as me. So I get to the gym early when it's relatively empty, before my work, and my wife and daughter are still asleep.

college coach. It is nice to have a gym right next to the office and extremely flexible hours, so i can sneak to the gym whenever i want. Well at least during the offseason. During season I have to get in there real early.

Hmmm coincidence Im a physics student. I go to work and class from 8 to 4, then practice, then dinner, then workout, then homework. Since Im trying to get stronger without getting bigger, I find that post-dinner workouts can be quite effective if you can ignore the hunger that follows.

I'm with you. I work from 7:30am to 4pm Monday thru Friday and I am usually ready to lay down and not hit the gym. Having someone to workout with motivates me though 'cause they are waiting for you to show up. And I can't just skip out on them.

That's the life right there! Of course, kids can be a handful.

I work in a warehouse (a feed company specializing in products for livestock). It's dirty, dirty work and it's like working inside an oven right now, but my boss is cool as hell and I like the people I work with.

We got cut to 32 hours a week about six months ago due to company financial difficulties and it sucks. I was also a bouncer for a little bit, but got fired for missing an employee meeting I knew nothing about. B.S.!

I bought into a pizza store about 8 months ago and im putting in 70+ hours, have had under ten days off and never more than one in a row. Its been unbelievably hard to stay on track. So little time for anything else that I end up just putting it off to much.

I work at a fossil plant. We are on rotating twelves (5:30am to 5:30pm or vice versa).

The good thing about working rotating twelves is that I get a lot of time off (~14 days a month), so lot of time to work out. On the flipside, during working days it is kind of a pain to find time to work out.

I work at a daycare center. I'm the only guy of course. But it actually motivates me to workout more. The kids look up to me, so I try to set a good example with what I eat and how I treat my body. One day I came back (from being at college) and a new kid looks and me and the first thing he says is, 'Wow, you're strong!' Kids can make you feel pretty awesome because they are so brutally honest!

my job is all shift work, completely random, days off change constantly, and on any given day they can say hey guess what your working 16 hours today and boom your there for another 8 hours with no planned food or anything. which means you either dont eat for 8 hours or you order ****ty ass food from a pizza place.. or on days you suspect you could be forced to stay you bring a whole backpack of food, gets annoying

I work for a large oil company at a local refinery. Time a week varies from 40 hrs if I dont feel like taking the overtime, up to 85 hours a week if I feel like I wanna spend some money. I always find time to make my way into the gym atleast 5 days a week. The length of the stay varies on how many hours I wourked that day.
