How do new parents do it?  Babies are up every 2 hours, getting no sleep.  Can barely even get to work in the morning, just so out of it.  Then while home they require 24 hour care and monitoring.  I lost 10 pounds in the last week and there is no way I can go to the gym.  Even if I could, I have no energy, and then without sleep it would all be worthless anyway!

Any advice?

Make lots of money, and hire a full-time nanny to take care of your soon to be burden on society degenerate offspring.

Focus on getting your child settled, forget the gym, just do the best you can, support your woman, remind yourself you won't be right for a while and be gentle on yourself.   You aren't going to die if you have to take some time off from the gym.  Just listen to your body. Your child and your woman should be the focus for the time being.  JMO

Fuck lifting until you guys get settled.  Maybe focus on your diet a little more if possible.

I had a baby in April, and between the addition we put on our house, and the baby, I haven't set foot in the gym other than a few times since January.  I just started back last week.  It's rough, especially if he is colicky.  Congrats on the little one man.

If you can find the space for it, maybe get cheap squat rack/bar or a heavy set dumbbells/kettlebells, and just knock out a few sets here and there when you've got time. It doesn't take much to maintain fitness once you have it, just a few sets a day. Some of those kettlebell complex type workouts are very good if you're short of time.

Lift at home in the meantime buy a pull up bar and some dumbbells and do what you can.

Train at home. Get creative with exercises. It will get better. The magical breakthrough is at 3months.

Yes, try bench pressing your new born, or bicep curls holding his leg.

Or you can join a cross-fit camp, and do the following...lol

It can be done. My wife is a fitness instructor and was teaching 4 days before my son was born. So she was as bad as me chomping to get back. You have to trade a lot and make do with less sleep. They do, eventually, sleep much better.

+1 on getting some kind of home gym if you can.

If you are lucky they will be sleeping all night in a few weeks.
And as a parent you soon adjust to the lack of sleep

As other people stated, just pick up some dumbbells, a pull up bar, ez curl bar an straight bar, and a bench. That will sustain you for a few months.

And congrats on the new born.

Your best bet is to keep fit by staying active.  Get a harness where you can your kid like a backpack. Also get a trailer for your bicycle. Then hike n bike with the kid. You will stay in shape, spend time with your kids and keep the old lady from nagging you to  death.

Invest in a pull up bar too.  For the most part going to the gym will become less important and more difficult tomake time for.
