I dont understand this topic.  Child rearing is for women...making money is for men.  When my child is up at night I expect the mother to handle it.  She doesn't work so her full time job is baby+house.  My full time job is keeping the lights on and food on the table.  If I'm not resting then I'm not performing my job as needed and that creates risk for the family.  Mommy can sleep when baby sleeps.

You will eventually settle into a schedule that works.  Give it more time before you panic.

Yeah, this is not 1950. Women are starting to have better jobs and making more than men. And as time elapses, this will occur at a greater amount.

QFT

I have 4 kids. Made a home gym. Worked many a 12 hour shift. Always worked out. A home gym really helps. No driving 30 minutes to the gym each way. Also try a Yates type split and one work set per exercise so most of your work outs are 45 minutes.

My 2 car garage is now a 1 car garage plus home gym. It's so much easier to work out at home although you need to get adjusted to the environment/small quantity of equipment.

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? 

Simple. PRIORITIZE!!!!

1) Wake up earlier to go to the gym; go later when the babies are asleep; or invest in a home gym.
2) COOK enough food to make your breakfast meals and lunch meals for AT LEAST THREE DAYS.
3) Your shaker bottle should have purple heart medals. When you can't eat your meals, DRINK THEM, especially at work.

I've been married almost 11 years with two kids born during that time. It ain't that hard. Remember Bill Pearl won multiple Mr. Universe titles, with a wife and family. And, Lee Haney won 8 Sandows under those same circumstances.

But, more women are dropping OUT of the workforce to stay home and raise babies (which has many feminists going nuts  Grin ).

My wife went nearly a decade without working full-time, once we got married.

Next time have TWINS!

Place their cribs close to one another and for some unknown reason they will 'communicate' with each other until they fall asleep on their own around 7:30 each evening.

And at around 6:30 AM each morning you'll hear them communicating with each other through their own language which they apparently understand.

Sometimes they even resent the interruption when you go in to get them up.

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

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

HTH.

This is what I did.  Grin

Hopefully said offspring won't be a degenerate though *crosses fingers*.
