If you're training hard 5 days a week it's not surprising that you feel tired and probably need a little break...say a week off. Then try a 4 day a week program and see how that works...that's my schedule and I take a week or 2 off every 13 weeks or when needed. You have to use a periodization type of training cycle to avoid breaking down...take it easy when you are tired and don't rush it until you are fully recovered from it...then you can give it a push for say 4-6 weeks.
yea man..in the last 9 days ive worked out 8 days 2 hours at a time...my body feels very tired but i dont want to take to much time off,i feel like i may lose something
