25 months off exercise intolerance

Recommended Posts

I have been feeling great but every time I start exercising I can go for a period of time and then start to deteriorate.  I start to slowly experience poor sleep, then irritable, then ultimately full blown crippling anxiety over a course of 3 to 4 weeks as I increase in intensity .  I Have to stop and heal again.  Takes a week or so before I’m ok again      Is this normal?  Anyone else ?

Hey, man. It's been a long time since we spoke. I'm noticing the same thing about exercise as of late. It seems the harder I go, the more troubled my sleep becomes. I need to test it out a little more though because I also sleep poorly if I eat anything after dinner. Like if I snack at all.

I ultimately had to go on TRT after it was revealed my testosterone levels were that of an 80 year old man or specifically 180! My T levels are now over 1000 and I recovered 90% of my old competitive physique!

Been going on 10 mile bike rides where much of it is uphill and gets me breathing real hard

Also weights 4 days a week.

What happens if you exercise more gently?

 

I bike a fair bit and continued biking during my withdrawal.  But I slowed down.  If I rode 'normal' speed, I'd get all rev'd up.  So I slowed down a bit (but rode the same distance - about 2100 miles that year). 

 

You'll be able to go hard again, but I'd invite you to back off the intensity of those workouts by 30% for a while.  If you're a 24 kph biker, maybe back off to 19 kph and see how it goes.

I am definitely going to scale back.  Once I shake this set back.  Do you think the weight lifting is also a culprit?

Same thing for weights.  If you're lifting near your limit and/or doing vigorous work-outs, I'm guessing it'll rev you up.

 

If you're pushing/pressing/lifting something as hard as you can and/or doing as many reps as you can, I think it's too much.  If my bench max was 250, I think I'd stay under 200 during withdrawal (and with slower reps and more breaks).  And definitely no tear-downs!
