First of all congratulations. My advice, for what it is worth.

Just go easy while you all settle in and learn how to deal with sleep depravation. We have had 4 kids, none of them have been sleepers. Even in the early stages they didn't even have daytime naps.

Now the youngest is 3 and we get a couple of nights a week where they all sleep through.

As for training, just remember anything is better than nothing, so even if you do a couple of whole body workouts a week or when ever you can, it will still be good for you.

My first couple of years as a dad, I lost about 30lbs and never thought it would come back. Time will sort it out, so for now, help your wife, love your kid(s) and do what you can.

I always say, "worry about what you can do, not what you can't do"

Our eldest is 11 now and I back training Ok and my wife is back competing as a figure pro, better than before. It can be done.

Best job in the world is being a dad, so enjoy it brother!

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? 

Forget about gym for a year or so.

You have to get creative with your work out time. For example, go on your lunch hour. Good luck, it does get easier.

That's either legit dedication, either lack of motivation to lift.

Does a man have to have a kid/kids to validate his life? I say no.

I've often wondered if the key to a pain free childbirth is a rigorous routine of vaginal stretching.

Kids are no reason to miss the gym, you might have to switch gyms to find a place that offers childcare like a ymca or commercial type place but it is no excuse! My kids are 2 years apart and their asses got lugged to the gym with me everyday. Nothing like packing a gym bag and a diaper bag to head off to train. If you really want to train you will find the time if not you will find an excuse! My kids are 16 and 14 now so but from new borns to 10 yrs old they hit the gym with me every time I went.

Workout to FEEL good

I had two kids at once 4 months ago. Faced the same desperation.

Forget your gym for a couple of weeks, it doesn't matter anyway. Water weight will go down but if you have a foundation you shouldn't become a twink overnight.

I was out for about 1.5 weeks. Then I could get in some short sessions here and there again.

If you are lucky you will be able to start working out properly again when they are a couple of months.

Sleep I cannot help you with. Try to sleep whenever they sleep..

You 'had', WTF?! You sold them on Ebay to a Chinese couple or did the mother left you?
