Thanks everyone.
What seemed to work best for me, consistently, is to eat a little more that I had been, before the workout.
I've been eating a slice of sprouted wheat toast with hummus spread over top, and lox. Yummy!!! And, seems to work for me!
Thanks again!

If you don't start feeling better soon, you could try adding another rest day or two to your schedule for a while.

I'm going to go with Gladgad. Most likely you are not getting enough fuel and therefore are feeling tired. After weight training you should eat a meal that is high in protein and carbs and lower in fats. This will help your body replace what you used and start the repair process. Remember weight training increases the metabolism over a longer period of time after working out. So you body will need something or will get tired.

If you are lifting with good form and don't feel like you are straining yourself in the wrong way, then the weights you are choosing should be fine.

It could be a combination of things. If you're increasing weight but decreasing calories and especially carbs, that could do it. Good carbs are a source of energy, so you could try increasing your carbs a bit to see if that helps.

Other things could be your TOM or even being low in vitamin D.

Personally whenever I increase my workout intensity I go through a period of fatigue. I have also found that if I skip my vitamin D (I'm older so I don't process D as well as I used to) that I will be fatigued in the afternoon.

Hi,
I've been consistently weight training for about 6 months now, using barbells/dumbbells and love seeing results slowly happening. It just feels good to weight train for me.

However, lately I've been feeling very tired after workouts, where I need a nap, but I am at work. I feel extra fatigue. I've been trying to figure out if there may be a connection to my weight training and I have been eating less to lose weight and at the same time been increasing my weights.

Has this happened to any of you folks out there? How do I know when I am ready to increase the weight, perhaps I am moving ahead too fast? Or should I increase carbs or other nutrition? (I am mostly just increasing protein, but still have been eating carbs though not as much)

Thanks in advance!!!
