Yeah my job definitely effects my training. Sometimes for the good, sometimes for the bad. Today was day 3 on the bottling line, ugh! 19 pallets x 56 cases x 36 lbs/case = ridiculous.
Scumdog, thank you for the props, first of all. And I know a few things I've picked up at this job to help keep my energy levels high for those post work training days. For example I'll stretch my back and legs often while Im sitting for a good amount of time. When I happen upon an area I have to myself for a second or two, I'll do a couple a.t.g. squats with a good stretch at the bottom. Let's see..... I also find a broom something and I'll do those shoulder dislocate stretches for a few seconds. Whenever I get a break, or even if its a good time for a small bathroom break, I'll do a bit more in depth stretches to keep my circulation good and to stay loose. If these arent applicable in your situation, I know I always see articles addressing this EXACT issue at menshealth.com. I guess guys that work in offices and also happen to train are their target market?
Notes on my training. Forgive SFers, for I have sinned! It has been two days since my last wod! You know what my original excuse was yesterday, the bottling line. Well on my way to the girlfriends' house, I happened to run into my best friend that's home from Bahrain in the army. So of course I HAD to go chill with him for the night. He brought a bottle of absinthe he smuggled from Germany, that was a barrel of fun! He showed me all the special forces hand-to-hand combat he's learned and their PT techniques, which are ABOUT the same as CF HAHA! Of course, I had to go into my truck and show him, his brother, and some other close friends of ours my rings. I was shocked to find I was the only one out of us that could use the rings sufficiently for dips or pushups. This was a pretty weird thing because my friend has always been stronger than me when it came to metcon and especially bodyweight training. Everyone loved the challenge the rings offered, Im pretty sure I sold a couple of the guys on them haha. I ended up staying there with him till around 330am, went to sleep, got back on the bottling line today at 700am. Thought I was going to die. Got back to the gf's house tonight and have just been napping on and off, resting for tomorrow, bottling line again. So I'll be trying L5D3 tomorrow, but not expecting to pass it yet. Oh well.
