Hi, ever since I have been working extra hard on my squats and eating tons every day I feel really tired all the time. I generally stick to a 5x5 or 3x5 and mainly do compounds each time I go. I only go to the gym 3 times a week but I am ULTRA tired on the days I dont go. For instance, yesterday was a heavy squat,press, and rowing day. I slept like a baby for 8 hours but I was exhausted today. I came home after work and slept for 3 hours just now. The other day, instead of taking a lunch break at work, I slept inside the shower closet they have there. I could barely keep my eyes open in my cubicle so I had to. Is this just my muscles needing tons of rest to repair? I have been working my ass off on the squats lately.
I do not drink caffeinated drinks EVER.
I do not drink anything but water during the week (beer on the weekends), except before I workout I take about 200mg of caffeine, some l-arganine, and b-vitamins.
I am constantly well hydrated throughout the day (light yellowish urine always). I am never hungry, because if I am, I will already have a meal to eat in front of me. Does anyone else feel like this who works extra hard in the gym?
