Hello GymJones,

I have been using your plans since 18 months. I started as a absolute novice ( only 20 push ups max etc.,). 

I have come a long way. Thank you so much for great knowledge and tips. I used plans like foundation, 300 month one ( finished twice), 300 month two (finished once), superman month one (finished twice) , lower body injury. 

The latest plan I finished was 300 month two. (4 days ago)

I workout in the morning. I work as a software engineer. I come home at 8:30pm. I feel very very tired after I get home. all I can do is some basic stretching, dinner and sleep. 

However, I observed that my energy levels are getting very low. I feel fatigued all day. I do get 8 hrs of sleep. 

I get deep tissue massages twice a month. At least some of my body parts are always sore

Am I over training ? or not eating enough ?

can you please tell me what I could be doing wrong ?

Here are my workout and diet details

Workout:  90min in the morning.


pre workout - oatmeal, post workout- whey protein, green superfood, 2 eggs

lunch and dinner: lean meat, greens and some carbs

pre sleep: calm powder. casein 

Here are my standards:

Age: 27, weight: 158lbs

Deadlift: 265lbs, Bench Press: 190lbs, Back Squat: 205lbs, 2000m row: 7:51

My goal is to look good without sacrificing strength and performance. I believe traditional body building will not let me run 10 miles or carry someone over for a mile ( if need arises)

Thank you for emailing and being a member. Do you know how many calories you eat daily? It really doesn't look like a lot. I think you are not eating enough. You should be somewhere around 2000-2500 per day.

Hello Bobby,

Thank you for the reply.
I will count my calories for a couple weeks and see how I feel. I will aim for 2500

Thank You,
