Lifting in morning or night?
I do construction so sometimes I work 12 hr days hanging steel all day and when I get home donít have the energy to lift so was thinking about switching to lifting in morning which Iíve never done was curious if I would be tired all day at work from it, Is better for you etc if anyone had any insight on this I would appreciate it

Really doesnít matter, totally subjective
If you have energy in the morning and arenít significantly sacrificing quality sleep...then lift in the morningLift Heavy, Live Strong

Buy a crapload of protein bars and oysters to munch on throughout the day. Missing out on the feed is what breaks me off the most. Some days it is almost inevitable and I pay the price.

Sometimes im on jobs that are 10hrs a day 7 days a week for 6-10 weeks straight. Lifting before work does not make me more tired at work. Training after work actually snaps me outta it and even sometimes to the point i dont wanna sleep. The hardest thing about lifting after work is the drive to the gym. 15min into the workout my energy comes right back

3am workouts for me. Put in around 16 hours a day labor m-f, usually 6-8 sat-sun. Workout 5 days a week. I feel as though the early morning workout actually gives me more energy for the day. Also, mentally you have the alpha feeling all day long like when you are working beside a slacker and think to yourself " what was this Bama doing at 3am this morning "

Get to work in the morning listening to everyone complain about how tired they are and all that bs....I've done ran about 4 miles done 150 Pushups 150 situps and pushed about 10,000lbs of weight all jacked up on all kinds of supps, every body looking at you like your nuts.....that's what it's all about for me

I too work a rigorous manual labor job for long hours. One guy I work with does triathlons. He puts on serious miles running, biking, and swimming after work. He once drove from Seattle to Salt Lake City after work to do a half iron man and then drove back to Seattle and on no sleep. He’s also 100% natural. He won’t even put otc pain meds in his body. So basically what I’m saying is it’s totally doable to workout before or after a labor job because it comes down to the strength of your mind, not your body.
As for me, I’m not that hardcore. When my working life gets intense, I do light workouts afterward and save the hard workouts for my days off. I still see gains this way.

I believe you should train at whatever time you feel the most alert. For me, thatís the mornings. But I can only train during the mornings on my days off from work. Getting up at 4am leaves me no time for an early morning session. Usually go for a very short run with my dog but thatís it. Train around 430pm.
