    Salary Man Training

    I was wondering what training you guys who hold down a 9-5 job and a wife/family do for training. Recently I have just been doing normal 2 hour classes 4-5 times a week but that will be reduced soon to 3 hour sessions 3 times a week. As it is, that seems to kill a great deal of my time but doesn't seem enough.

    So I was wondering what do you other working schlubs do?

    There are gyms that open 24 hours a day and dojo that open till late (9 pm) plus sat/sun classes.

    Going later in night was only way for me to cope juggling it.

    On serious note, only way was to cut down on sleep time and other essentials like...eating, cooking, laundry, etc.

    I don't cook, I don't do laundry, I cut down sleep. I drop my cloths off at laundromat, I order in, I sleep less.

    Probably explains why I'm so tired all the time and why I end up working longer/hard to make money to pay off to save time/money to cook/clean, etc. It's endless cycle !!!

    I started to cut down on training time too and look like you do too.

    Sleep and good diet are as important as training. Don't skimp out on them.

    I train as regularly as possible with a full time job and family. I'm lucky to live about 2 minutes from my school, so that helps. Another thing I do is just not sweat it too much. Lots of times I push myself to train when I'm tired or feeling lazy. But sometimes if I really don't want to go, I just don't.

    Training isn't a sprint. It's a marathon. Sometimes it's better to go home and spend time with the family. That way you can get some rest and go back to training feeling refreshed. I never make myself feel guilty about choosing to spend time with my kids instead of training. The last thing you want to do is burn out. I'd rather train for one day with the proper focus than train two days feeling like **** with other things on my mind.

    I work 8-5 monday through friday, then go to the boxing gym 6-8.

    For a while I went every day, but my girlfriend complained that she never saw me, so I cut back to generally going monday-wednesday-friday.
    When I have a fight coming up I go every day for the two weeks going up to the match, and she doesn't like it but she more understanding about that.

    Training every day for many hours is fun and all, but unless you're a pro fighter it's probably not worth sacrificing your day job and time with your family for.

    What is a salary man? If you don't mind a slight derail.

    When I had more than one good leg my schedule went like this:

    2 hours of training on Tues, Thurs, Sat, Sun, and sometimes Fri
    3-4 hours of college on Mon and Wed

    On school nights I didn't have much time after getting home; but on training nights I was home for about half an hour before and 2-3 hours after depending on how tired I was.

    The really cruddy part is that I never felt like doing anything around the house; so I usually ended up doing everything on the weekend so that I could relax after finishing training/school on the weeknights.
