      Does your career affect your traing in a positive or negative way.
      Sometines i feel like my physical work causes less energy and aggression after work while i train.
      But i could see sitting all day at a desk having sone type of impact on spine stress.
      I am a union carpenter and pushing screws threw metal all day burns me out.
      What do you guys do and how does it effect yiur training?

      man, i was an infantryman in some capacity or form for my entire career. so running hiking and doing all kinds of physical activities was daily for me and it had a hell of an impact on my training. that and being in the heat day in and day out. what i found is that i had to get up super early and get in to train before i had to check in at work. that way it didnt affect my training for the day. if i had unit functions or training then i would go during lunch to train on some days. it didnt take me long to figure out that training at the end of the day was a no go because a combo of eating 5-7 meals and being in the heat made evening training a difficult feat in itself. i made progress during my career and did very well competing but nowhere near what i have been able to since retiring.

      you have to be a seriously motivated person to train and eat while working a physically demanding job. cool thing is their really isnt a huge need to do extra cardio and stuff because of the work you do. diet is one of the biggest challenges to, and bars and shakes w/ oats mixed in where a godsend for me to hit numbers when super busy but i always carried a cooler full of my whole food meals. only opting for the other in a serious pinch

      I did construction for years. Started working for a huge hobby store retailer. We did all the fixtures in stores such as checkout stands, merch tables. display racks ect for all the stores. I built custom cabinets for drag racing courtesy trailers and finally did trim carpentry and custom closets for a year. (Lots of money in closets, go figure)

      Trim took it's toll on my knees. crown moulding was not so bad but bottom trim on your knees all day HURT!

      It helped me get my job as a building inspector. 23 years now. I get a good mix of desk and field work so i can sit for an hour and a half at my desk then go out and do inspections walking around, and finish with an hour or two of data entry and returning emails and calls. I love it.

      Mine was more white collar, where I commuted in Los Angeles traffic for 2 hours each way, and managed a team of high stress, high reward investment consultants throughout the day, while managing the private fund of a group of our highest net worth clients. Eating throughout the day was not a problem, but I was already waking up at 4 to get to my office by the time the market settled a bit after opening at 6 am (9am new york time). I would get home around 8 pm, exhausted. Barely enough time to workout quickly, eat, and sleep to do it all again the next day...It taught me a thing or two about self-discipline lol... no pain no gain bros.

      jin&juice, sounds like my brother. he works for a fortune 20 company. They own him. he travels every week 4 days out of the week. he works even on his days off. Slave to the corporate machine. I will stick to my laid back job with people I enjoy being around, not sharks looking for weakness to get ahead and 8 to 5 m through fri.

      Similar to the environment I worked in. 14 hours a day always "on". Not even the time to eat or come down from being on alert. Even when I forced myself to take a day off I worked from home. You know what you get for it. Missing your kids growing up and a lot of other family time misses. A little more money than average but that goes quickly when your used to being "high" figuratively or really.

      Very true. It comes down to what you want your life to amount to- what you want your tombstone to say. "He worked hard"

      I have worked as an attorney for 23 years now. I had to give up competing when I graduated law school and started working. To be successful in what I do I had to be focused on one thing only, my job. I knew my competitive bodybuilding days were done the day I graduated.
      I didn't train at all for at least two years when I started working. Talk about looking at yourself thinking who the fuck is that?
      Anyway, I could never compete again but training does me so much good for the tremendous amount of stress I could be under at times. Plus I'm 47 now but people think I'm 35 or so. It keeps me looking younger, better and feeling better about myself. Thqt help with work because I'm more positive in general.
