    I hope you're planning to move to a different job. 10 hours of work+2 hours commuting is fucking insane, unless you're not working 5 days a week like everyone else, or you're being paid so fucking well or amassing such amazing experience that you can use it as a jumping off point to something better.

    I'd rather see you squat, press, bench a couple times a week and deadlift once a week than do 0. Do what you can. Fuck the power clean if you're short of time. And fuck your 6 day a week option. Just do 4 days: MTH squat 3x5 bench 3x5 and then TueSat Press 3x5 Deadlift 1x5. Each workout done 2x/week. Swap one of the deadlift days out for 3xF Chins when 2x/week deadlifts is too much. These should take you 30-45 minutes per workout depending on the day. You probably require fewer warmup sets than you think, too.

    If you say this wouldn't work then you're saying 2-3 hours of workouts per Week cannot be accommodated, which I doubt, but you be the judge of that. Some children and mothers need more attention and time than others and we all know the world needs good fathers. Nobody would blame you for missing time, but also, you know it's not going to get any easier in the future. It may be a good time to build the habit in. Even 1-2 good workouts a week is better than 0. Good luck with everything!

    Little late but, my man, do NOT stop training. Take it down to two days a week, one of them being on your day off. You can get strong training twice a week. There will always be *something* that gets in the way, may as well get used to it and learn to work around it. Not many have a perfect schedule or a life perfectly suited to training. Wait for that to happen and you'll never train. We have to adapt and make it work the best we can given our individual circumstances.

    You have to take care of yourself to be useful to anyone else.

    Best wishes and hey, congratulations!
