David Held asks:
I have been following the crossfit football site for about 5 months now and I am loving it. I have just recently moved to the collegiate training, I had a question for y’all about training and working a physically taxing job. I understand that there are probably numerous people following the site that are in the same situation as me and wanted to get your take on this. I thought that it might be a good topic for y’all to address on power athlete radio as well. Here’s my scenario. I am working at least 10 hour days 5-7 days a week as a construction worker. I recently have noticed that my energy levels have plummeted and was hoping for some suggestions. I am getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night, eating a shit load of good food and even taking naps here and there if I have time. It just seems like I do not have the energy to do anything but work train and sleep. What I was considering doing is skipping the Saturday workout depending on how I am feeling from the week, but was curious if that would effect my strength gains? Unfortunately it seems like what I am training for ( faster, stronger, bigger, just all and all more fit ) is just going out the window, recently I almost feel weaker and smaller. I could really use some suggestions. Thank you and look forward to your response.
