    Training time cut :( need advice


    Hey all so I've had my workload and overtime increased a lot which has only left me with about 3 nights a week to train for about 45mins. I was training 5-6 nights a week for about an hour and a half. I'm just wondering what I should focus my training on to still get results with minimal training time?
    At the moment I'm doing deadlifts, squats, wide grip pull-ups, chin ups, lunges and a bit of focus work on biceps and triceps (cos they need work)
    Any advice would be very helpful. Thankyou in advance

    Now that summer is here and the overtime is hitting us hard I started going to the gym at 5am. Still getting in 4 1 hour+ workouts a week and 54 hours a week of work. It sucks but now that my shoulder is fully healed I have to make up for lost time.
    If I could on do 3 days a week I would do.
    Day 1 Deads
    Day 2 Cleans/bench
    Day 3 Squats

    If your worried about being stapled you could always do dumbbell presses. I switch between the 2 every other week anyway.
