strength training when tired
An_241393 posted:
I am a 40 year old man. I'm 6'3" and about 200lbs, so not overweight. I exercise in the morning when I get up, but I have a very tough time doing anything intense, especially in regards to strength training.

Some background: I make sure to have a snack about a half hour before I start (a little protein powder mixed with some OJ and water). I sleep for about 8 hours a night but have sleep apnea so while I get plenty of time in bed it is poor quality sleep. ( I wake up groggy every day). I've tried all the normal treatments for it and have had very limited success.

Ideally I would like to gain about 10 lbs of muscle (along with increasing energy), but is that an unrealistic hope given my situation? I only have about a half hour of exercise time per day, but can do 5 or 6 days a week. Does anyone have any suggestions about how I could set up my routine based on this?

Thanks in advance...
