    I started training at home exclusively about 6 years ago.I had been buying pieces of equipment for years but when the gym I was at closed I finally got off my ass and put together a home gym.I don't think I have missed a workout since.Many times the wife says we got some shit to go do and I say "give me 30 minutes"and I hit a quick chest or back or whatever workout.Anyway where I was going with this anwer was if you get a little bit of equipment (maybe even just enough to hit arms) it's easier to squeeze in workouts.good luck

    When I was still going to commercial gym and didn't have home gym, I would take an hour (or two) of vacation and leave work early. Can't tell you how many things I showed up to later in my sweaty gym clothes.

    I miss workouts due to family or work about every other week. For a long time it would irritate the shit out of me, i got used to it. Now if I miss a day I stay longer on a day I can. I probably dont get the results I could be as you said family and work come first.

    I workout at home too. But there are pros and cons to that. Working out in a room alone can be tougher to keep yourself motivated at times. Especially on days when you have to perform things like barbell squats.

    I hate when work gets in the way of my training. Happens more than I'd like. The next three weeks I'm gonna be out of town 3-4 days each week, it's gonna suck. The gyms when I'm going suck unless I drive an extra 30 minutes.

    I lift at night. Try to get off by 5:30 but it rarely happens. Usually get to the gym around 7-7:30 and lift then cardio, head home, eat, start a fire, eat again, shower, pack meals, pin, work more, then eat, pin GH, go to bed. Usually in bed by 12:00-01:00, wake up at 5:30-6:30 and start over. Fasted cardio for 20min 3x a week (if I have time) and then back to work. It becomes routine. I try to maintain some flexibility because of all the out of town work but it's hard
