OK, it's like this. Last week I had a really bad workout day. It was a leg day... not usually a good day but this one was worse. Almost the whole time I was workin out I was gettin dizzy and out of breath real easily. Also I felt like I was going to throw up afterwards. Ever since then I have been exhausted. I'm gettin enough sleep and I'm eatin like 3000 + cals a day. I eat nutritious too. I just don't get it. It's hard for me to get up in the mornin and throughout the day I'm in a bad mood and going to the gym is like torture. I don't know what the problem is but no matter what I do to try to fix it... sleep, eat more, do less activity, nothing seems to help. Before, I was workin, lifting, and going to karate. Now I havn't been to karate in a week cuz I'm too damn tired, all cardio has been cut bcuz I don't have the energy and lifting routines are like hell to get through as well as work. I always feel dizzy and I get really hot and my face gets red. Hard to breathe. My weight has been going down and my % fat is fluctuating like crazy. Going from 20 to 19 to 21 to 19.5. I'm freakin out cuz it's affecting my everyday life. Anyone have any suggestions?

How long have you been training? Maybe it is time for a few weeks off.

I've been training w/ weight for like 2 months. Before that I was doing work and karate for 5-6 months.

Take a week off. Will do the body good. In that time, re-evaluate your goals, training, and diet, then hit it up again hard. :)

That being said, a trip to the local GP for a checkup couldnt hurt either.

load up on food, sleep and water.
