Lack of energy

Hungary BiggestEiprilFan 
Hi HLTV Lately I've been feeling kind of unenergised (idk if this is a word, English speakers confirm pls). Like, every time I should do my workout , I feel like I have no power, what should take only 70-80 minutes takes 2+ hours , and I don't understand why. Plus sometimes I just skip workout because I feel too tired. How to get energised again? I don't eat much junk food and I drink a lot of water. Pls help

There is nothing wrong with sleeping more than 8 hours. The higher your physical and/or mental activity the more time your body/brain will need to recover. Also there are other different factors.

then tldw turns into tldr? its just 19mins anyway there is research on oversleeping amerisleep.com/blog/oversleeping-the-hea.. webmd.com/sleep-disorders/physical-side-.. sciencealert.com/sleeping-more-than-8-ho.. we are not talking about singular cases where you absolutely mentally and physically exhausted yourself. noone says anything about being wasted after doing an IRONMAN. so your comment is misguided anyway.

Sleeping more than 8 hours and oversleeping aren't the same things. For example, sleeping 9 hours is fine if you have high physical and mental activity during the day. Sleeping 9+ hours is probably too much if you need such amount of sleep EVERY day, but if you do it once in a while to "compensate" sleep deprivation from previous days, then it's not a big deal. Edit: Quote from the article you posted: "Of course, not everyone who oversleeps has a sleep disorder. Other possible causes of oversleeping include the use of certain substances, such as alcohol and some prescription medications. Other medical conditions, including depression, can cause people to oversleep. And then there are people who simply want to sleep a lot." Another quote: "The “right” amount of sleep proves somewhat individual as some people will feel great on seven hours and others may need a little longer. However, in most studies and for most experts, over nine hours is considered an excessive or long amount of sleep for adults." Keyword: "over nine". So there is nothing that contradicts what I said above. Last article looks like clickbait because it has "sleeping more than 8 hours" in the title but in the article itself they talk about "average sleep duration of 10 hours".

Unenergised isn't a word but I understand what you mean. I had this before, it may not be the solution for everyone, but my friend put me on zinc supplements (40mg MAX), per day. This gave me much more energy than i ever had before, drinking monster energy/red bull every day, and it's natural for the immune system.

Maybe your body is giving you signs you need to rest from your workouts cause you overtrained. Low energy is a symptom of overtraining. I advice you to stop working out for a week, give your body some rest and then start again. If you are still having the same problem then you should do a blood work to see if you are missing some vitamins or something else. Could be low testorone too who knows.

2021-03-08 11:10
It depends, how much do you work out, even though you are probably young enough to fairly recover, you should look and make a schedule when you will rest. Also look for massages, physio and sauna, all it help you with recovery and to prevent any injuries. Another thing is if your calories intake is high enough. I dont know if you track your calories or not, so look more into that. And last thing is some vitamins and mineral supplements to check if its correct.

I workout like 3-4-5 times a week depends on my free time , and each session consists of 46 exercises (5 times each, half of them are rehabilitation for scoliosis and other half are muscle strengthening) that should all be done under 70-90 minutes but I take 2+ hours and idk if this is normal but I feel like it isn't
2021-03-07 21:34

What do you feel that is making you slow? Is it the pace of exercises? Do you go to a gym where the number of members is high so that it takes time to get equipments/machines? Also How much is your protein intake? Make sure your protein intake is good enough so that your muscles have a good recovery. And looking from other comments, I would recommend you get a blood test for Iron deficiency you mentioned

Then I suggest you monitor your daily protein intake, if it's fine continue without monitoring. Or else, are you experiencing stress/burned out with all the current conditions? Mental exhaustion can also lead to physical lethargy.

Do you workout every day ? I just do 4 days in a week strengh workout with weights at home and 2 days in a week I got cardio outside. I need at least 1 day off every week or I overtrain myself. Overtraining is a thing, it can make you feel terrible and sleepy all the time, you can also feel headaches, higher body temperature etc. You probably need day or two to rest. Also go for a walk outside, even during the quarantine, body needs sun to operate normally

Maybe: 1.) You don't eat enough. When someone discards junk food it happens that then they are low in calories. It can also happen that you do not have sodium in your body and because of that you urinate everything out. Make some good broth/stock. 2.) Vitamin/Mineral deficiency. Most often it is magnesium and Vitamin D 3.) Stress - Massage or bath with bath salt can help. 4.) Check your blood pressure.

Energy drinks (like 3 week maybe 4 but never more than 1 per day). If you want a more healthy solution try to workout even when you don't want to. I takes 15 miutes of cardio to make you lose calories. On the days you don't want to workout just do 20 minutes of cardio. It doesn't take much time. Take warm showers and avoid playing cs at night for a some days. Energy drinks help a lot. I could recommend you some.

So lets say. You workout monday, wednesday and friday. you should try to stick with those days. And if you don't feel like doing it. 1- Stretch, look up stretching exercises. 2- do it but not as heavy as a normal workout would be like. As I said you only need 15 minutes to burn calories with cardio so a 20 minute workout and stretching is great!

Do you take time off? Normal is something like a full week off every 6 weeks or so. If you don't, eventually fatigue will catch up and your body just won't let you keep going. Lethargy (unenergisementism) is a common symptom of this. As #67 says though, wouldn't hurt to have a blood test, FBE, MBA, iron studies and thyroid function will cover the most common causes of lethargy.
