So I’m wondering if I’m overtraining. I’ll post my workout routine, supplements, food intake, rest, the likes. Hopefully you guys can provide insight into A: if I am overtraining B: Cures for it if I am. For the record, the practice is for baseball. This whole training regiment is assigned by the college I play for.
Sunday: Off Day
Monday: 4 hour practice and lifting.
Tuesday: 5 hour practice and cardio.
Wednesday: 4 hour practice, lifting and cardio.
Thursday: 5 hour practice, cardio.
Friday: 5 hour practice, light lifting.
Saturday: 5 hour practice, heavy lifting.
I usually take in about 3-4k calories per day. Currently on creatine, ZMA, Beta-7, Fish oils, and a multi. I usually get about 8-9 hours of sleep every day. It’s hard to get more with classes and homework.
My symptoms: severe lack of enthusiasm for anything - I feel like I’m constantly dead. Severe drop in libido. This has been pretty major, I’m not even sure I could get it up if I tried. Strangely I don’t feel too bad when I lift. In fact, I’ve had some of the best lifting sessions the past 2 weeks.
Would increasing calorie intake help out these feelings? I’ll try to increase sleep, but it’s awfully hard. Any supplements that might help out?
Thanks in advance.
