Hi guys, it has been more than a year since I weight lifted. In that time, I have got a job that requires many hours so I did not have the time or energy to work out.
In the last few months however, I have seemed to manage the workouts in. I now workout after work.
At first, I lifted every other day and did things like deadlifts, squats etc. The problem was that I becaome very tired and did not have the stamina to continue.
After a few more weeks of doing that routine since coming back, I decided to do Starting Strength, once again like I used to more than a year ago. Back then, I had more energy and did not get tired as easily.
Anyway, after starting the new routine, I become very tired and often times, somewhat dizzy after doing squats. The weights are not what I used to lift but seem heavier. My weight is also lower than it was more than a year ago.
I'm wondering if working 12 or more hours and then working out is the main reason behind my fatigue. Or might it be me not eating correctly and/or enough. I just eat something about 3 or 4 hours prior to working out. I also lack sleep.
What do you guys feel about this.
