    Default Training and fatherhood....

    Not sure if this is in the right place, but I just want to find out if there are any new fathers out there who have had to stop training because they just had babies or for those who have been, how long it took before going back and hitting the weights and how you balance the whole equation out?
    Ever since my twins were born (2 months ago-and wife finding it hard to look after them by herself) i haven't had time to go in fro some serious training, let alone pick up a weight.
    After nights of sleeping late and waking up almost 2-3 times in btwn leaves me exhausted, hence finding it hard to get the motivation to hit the gym & the lingering advice of having alota rest in order to grow make is it even worse, coz obviously I wont be getting enough rest.
    I just dont feel right when I don't hit the gym.

    not a new father my kid is a few years old now , but i do know that when g/f had our child had to sacrifice a few things to make time in helping to raise the child , give the g/f a bit of a help when needed

    i suppose it's just one of those things that needs to be done when your raising kids , need to make a few sacrifices to the lifestyle

    from memory after ther 6month barrier thing starting get back to normal somewhat

    My 2 boys are 8 and 3 years old.

    Only got into training when the youngest was 2 years old.

    All I can say is, you might just have to put training on the backburner for a year or 2. I know this sounds like a lot, but every now and then, you might be able to sneak away to the gym.

    The only other answer, is do what i have done, and make up a home gym.

    good luck with the twins, un til they both sleep right through the night, it will make life difficult, but we all go through it, and it does end.

    got 2 kids in my tribe , while my kids are a 4 and 6 i have only just gotten into bodybuilding in the last couple of months
    before the kids were born was a keen fisherman and camper then the kids came along so the fishing and camping had to be put on hold for awhile ,

    only thing i can suggest is that you need to make time for your own activities otherwise you just go crazy , need that little bit of time to yourself maybe once a week

    No, no problems at all.
    My little Hulkess is 8 months old and I have not given up a single thing.
    She got very strong grip strength, can hang bodyweight off a bar.
    Probably lost 1 hour sleep in all that time.
    The inlaws are good for something at least....

    Not a father myself, but looking at my friends who've become dads, apart from the first chaotic 6 months or so, all their hobbies, gymming included, were unaffected by having kids. The dedicated ones remained dedicated, the slackarses stayed slack

    The birth of a child should be an inclusion to your daily life's activities not a substitue, but what would I know, I don't have any kids...yet.

    Exactly.

    The most busy and sucessful people will always have time to fit even more into their day and achieve more.

    Those who say, I don't have time for this or can't do that, are often the least sucessful.
