You know it was a good workout when you're too sore to take off your shirt.

Nothing wrecks my body and health like 12 hour shifts and night shifts.

I hated midnight shift with a passion, I always felt like a damn zombie. Ugh...and I'm on call this week for midnights in the jail if they're shorthanded...I hate the phone anyway and this week I really dread hearing it ring.

I worked as a watch officer for a few months. 12 hour shift, 1830-0630 (more like 12.75h w/ turnover), 5 days on / 5 off. I could sneak in a 30-45 minute workout during my shift most nights, but mental acuity was shot by day 5.

we do 2 weeks of 12 hour day shift followed by 2 weeks of 12 hour nites. as soon as you get acclimated to one you switch to the other.

I feel your pain, kinda. I wake up everyday at 2pm to pick up kids from school, fight traffic, feed them, put them to sleep, work 10-6am, then workout for an hour or so then go to bed and repeat.

That makes me cry.


I do that too, but it is one and one.

Earlier this year I did 5 weeks straight. 1 week of days, a flop to nights and 4 weeks of nights.

You get used to it.

guys in a neighboring dept. do 4 12 hr shifts of days, get 4 off, 4 12 hr nites, 4 off, 4 days, etc; that's a kick in the nuts.
