    I wouldn't choose "lifting as a lifestyle" given your diet and lighting situation, or take any advice from us privileged slackers.

    maybe, but me and some of my friend found that bodybuilding actually makes us happier and it's like a better escape from depression than drugs :P

    Ok then, if that's really your situation then make the most of it. What are your options for lifting? Local gyms, campus gym, public park, bricks in backpacks, or something else? Do you know your class schedule yet, so you can schedule the rest of life around it?

    Lifting is pretty varied, especially after Covid lockdowns last year. Gyms are an unnecessary luxury. Calisthenics weighted or unweighted will improve your physique.

    Not sure what the point of this thread is. Like everyone else, you have s*** to do and only so much free time. If you want to think you have more responsibilities than everyone else, it's fine - but figure it out and lift. If you can't, don't.

    Before I got my job now where I only work 4 days, some weeks 3, I cut my teeth as a regional truck driver. Worked upwards to 90 hrs a week with little sleep, delivering to Chik-fil-a and Boston Market up and down the east coast.

    And this was at night, to boot. So it severely messed with my sleep schedule. Normally the quality of my sleep suffered on the job because when I was supposed to be resting, and my partner would drive, I couldn’t get the rest I needed. Bumps, traffic, literally anything would wake me up.

    And even with 90 hr weeks, labor intensive work, deadlines, dealing with stupid people on the road, juggling bills, coming home and sleeping most of my free time away, and just being an all around busy body, I still found time to get 4-45 min workouts in a week.

    Hell, it doesn’t even have to be in gym, it just takes a little commitment on your part. If your schedule permits a few hrs of free time every other day, then there is your opportunity. You just have to nut up and do it.

    Can you show pics of the gym here, or is that forbidden in the political climate?

    Lifting will not interfere with your studies. Worst thing is you'd show up to class sweaty after the gym, or you might feel drained after a heavy session and need to eat. Lifting will improve your mood and your cognitive abilities, so I don't see the conflict with studying. Just manage your time.

    Pick a program and follow it as best you can. Write down all the weights and exercises you do, every session. Each session, do as much of the routine as possible before your session gets interrupted. Check off the lifts you complete, then next session complete the rest of the lifts. Follow the program systematically even if you have to split the days.

    The two most important things are: getting in the total workload for the week, and tracking your progress. Eating right and sleeping well are important too.

    It's hard to see everything but you've got an adjustable flat bench (the black one on the right), incline bench (yellow one in the middle), cable station, and other equipment in the back.

    Is there a squat rack? Barbells and plates?

    Pick a routine with the 6 main compounds: squat, deadlift or variation, bench press, row, overhead press, and pullup/pulldown. You can also do accessories if it fits the program: pec deck, leg extensions, etc.

    So you've got the equipment you need to run a balanced, well-rounded program. Next, you can pick a free program.

    Programs on this forum:
    Fierce 5
    Viking's
    AllPro's

    On the web:
    Candito Linear
    Stronglifts 5x5 (This is the most time-efficient program, but it's the most basic. You might outgrow it pretty quickly but it will get you in the habit of lifting regularly in a structured way.)
