talk about pressed for time. i work a 8 pm to 6 am shift every second week and i know i'm way to bagged after shift to even dream about getting a productive workout in. i'm not sure how you are after yours but i couldn't do it. the only suggestion i could give is maybe shortening up your gym time. i was pressed for time in the gym about a year ago and started more of a circuit workout and then hitting the major muscles with an extra workout on the weekend. i followed this schedule for about 6 mths randomly switching up the odd excercise. i would do mon- chest/back, tues-bi's/tri's, wed-cardio, thurs-shoulders/forearms, fri-legs, sat-chest/back or arms alternating weekends followed with cardio and took sundays off. i would do 3 different excercises for each muscle group and 3 sets of each exercise. i would usually end up with 6-8 different exercises to do each day. i would then do a mixture of supersetting and alternating muscle groups(say doing a set presses followed by rows without taking a rest between). another example was flat , decline, incline bench presses 10 reps of each exercise no rest. rest a minute and do a total of 3 sets. mainly dropped a little weight on each exercise and did things with little or no rest between sets and throwing in an ab workout inbetween sets to break it up and i could fit my workout in anywhere from 25-40 minutes and still feel like i got a good workout. anyway hope this helps maybe give you a little extra time to nap in that hectic schedule. peace

Phew. You are going to be tired no matter what you do.
Realistically, you are working out at the best time already.
I'm tempted to recommend a 2 day week high intesity program. Google "hardgainer" for more info. My concern is that you not be getting enough rest to make the plan work, and also you would not be pushing yourself hard enough each time you went into the gym due to general tiredness. Look it up and decide for yourself.
For supplements, look into Reset AD by Palo Alto. I have a feeling you are using stimulants in one form or another to get through this. Drive/RPM might be good to ramp you up, and Powerfull might help you get better quality of sleep.
I am also a person who pushes himself way to hard at points. This won't be easy, but it can be done.
Good Luck, your going to need it.
