I have lifted weights for many years, but in recent years have scaled back and have noticed a recurring problem. When I lift, which may be rather sporadic, my metabolism seems to go into high gear to a point that I sleep very, very poorly for at least 24 hours after I'm done lifting. After that I physically crash for 3-4 days and feel awful. While I train hard, I don't think a single workout is sufficient to put me into an extreme overtrained condition. I really feel this is a bio-physical issue but don't know where to start looking. Has anyone else had these symptoms and could you tell me what the source of the problem is? I've mentioned it to my doctor, but he just shrugs his shoulders and doesn't seem to be concerned. Other than this condition, I'm in good shape. Any thoughts?

Ok, this is a year later. But anyway: me too. Not so much the sleeping problem, but the 2-3 day fatigue. Is it age?

Try eating 2 bannanas 45 minutes before training. I had the same symptoms and this sorted it out. I think it's something to do with blood sugar levels, but I'm not sure what!
