    As a new dad, I struggle getting in quality sleep. The hours are less and the daily stressors are high.

    Does the way I train (workout split, frequency, volume) need to be altered in any way? For example, perhaps do an upper / lower split 1x per week or 2 full body workouts twice a week? Etc

    Thanks!

    Hey Yousif.

    I’m currently going through this at the moment with my 1st child (18 months). After the 1st few weeks, you’ll get used to your body telling you how much you’ve got in the tank and if you need to skip a day/take it a bit easy/go heavy.

    I’ve kept the same plan and just accessed every session on how I felt that day.

    Hi Yousif, excellent question. I just had me first kid a month ago and I’m having a hard time getting my ass to the gym. I’m now running a push/pull/legs split, 3x a week and sessions as short as I can 40-60min

    Hey Joe!
    We are expecting our babygirl in 8 weeks. I got a couple of questions regarding the first couple weeks/months period.
    So for the first 3 weeks, I will be home with my wife. To be as much help as I can be, I am not planning to go to the gym. But, I have a couple bands, at home (got some strong black thick ones, it says 60 kg). Is there any point doing some training with them, or with the hectic sleep/recovery it would just do more harm than good, should stick to “just broga”?

    The second: I am planning to return to the gym when I go back to work. But as a full time ICU doc., work probably wont help with the sleep/stress/recov either. Should I just try to stick eith my cannonball program as much as I can, or just do the recover program for the first couple months, dont even plan more than 2 weekly sessions?

    Thanks in advance,
