So, last year i completely destroyed myslf by overtraining. To cut a very long and complex story short, I attempted to combine my bodybuilding with a strong addiction to technical mountaineering. I simply got WAY too lean, for TOO LONG, and bang. I had a complete metabolic shutdown.
I've been working with a sport med. specialist who's got me on a personalized [training intensity] protocol (meaning that I'm not allowed to go full out yet).
My PROBLEM: I still can't seem to break myself out of the old "constant" push mentalities. My leg mass is not recovering like it should, and frankly, I'm having to completely reorganize my life AND PERSONALITY because of this.
Has anyone else on here ever completely srewed the pooch? I'm fed up with this problem, and any insights into how to mentally change my training approach would be fantastic! And, I don't take drugs..... (A doc. actually put me on T for a while, and jeeze, it was a "free for all"! Realizing that steroids were taking me away from where I want to be [mentally and spiritually] I came off of it)
