  1. I have kids at home and I train at home (mostly). Iโ€™ve worked out in my kitchen with a weight vest and also with a loaded barbell, doing sets of pushups, pull-ups, OHP, front squats, etc in between children driven tasks (packing lunches, making breakfast, etc). Keeping a schedule for everyone helps. If everyone wakes up/goes to sleep at the same time every day, your dedicated training time can be mostly predictable.

  2. Thank you Omar! So if bikini model is too competitive for a goal and I need to be more specific: would it work to be a bikini model just for yellow bikinis? Or did I misunderstand that specificity thing?

  3. Training when you have kids is tough. That is part of why I invested in a garage gym. The Y that I went to didn't open until 5:00am making it hard to get home in time to help with my kids when they wake up. Now I am in my garage by 4:15 every morning. I also know that getting up that early isn't for everyone, but its literally the only way I can train now that we have two kids.
