Work Effecting WorkOUT....

I've got a problem concerning the ability for my muscles to heal after a long workout to actually gain the results. I will go to work the next day and unfortunately my work involves a lot of heavy lifting and such so my muscled don't really get all that much time to heal like they probably should. Do you think this might really effect the long term gains I will get? Or will my body get used to this over time, because Im relatively new to a regemented workout....

I hear you bro, I too work for a living (drywall) and some days I kill myself at work and at the gym. Your body will get used to it, just be sure to get a full eight hours of sleep. Your body needs it to recover. And also don't be afraid to take a cat nap here and there.

if your body and your muscles are to tight at the moment your lifting cut your sets down. if you do 3 sets of 10 cut it down to 6 sets of 5. so that way your not over stressing your muscles. becuase if you do, you'll end up pulling or tearing a muscle. and it takes a while to heal and your muscle just don't feel or look the same after wards.
