    I went through a fit of that for a couple weeks. Its good to get extra sleep in if your working it hard.

    How is your nightly sleep? are you supplementing correctly? hows the food intake?

    Its common for me to need a nap durning the day if i can sneak one in.

    I had that two weeks into my first cycle after a heavy leg day. I came home and literally passed out. Woke up a few hours later and finally got dinner.

    If everything is in check you are probably just raising the intensity roof in the gym and your body is simply responding. After all, change does not happen in the gym - it happens while at rest.

    1. Naps - COUGH - POWER Naps are good. Sleep whenever you get a chance.

    2. Take a MultiVitamin and extra Vitamin C and review your diet for enough calories and protein.

    3. Just eat. Not sure what your stats are or what kind of training you are doing to define what a "clean diet" would be for you.

    i had that a few times the first couple weeks of my current cycle. i would come home after a killer leg or deadlift day, drink a protein shake and lay down for a sec. the next thing I know Im waking up 2 hours later. i guess it just means you had a killer workout.

    The reason you get tired after workouts is because your blood sugar levels are low. I always want to go straight to bed after a workout lol. Make sure you get some carbs and protein after you workout to take advantage of that insulin window. Read up on insulin, you can use your bodys natural slin production as a heavy advantage in meeting training goals.

    Like Psycoswole said, the insulin levels are dropped and it's time to recover brah. It's the difference between a good workout and a great one in terms if 'window of opportunity' to eat post-workout.
