Sleepy/Useless after workout

I can work out either in the morning or the evening, given my 9-5 schedule. If I do it in the morning, i'm a useless lump at work. If I do it in the evening, I sleep forever (like 10+ hours), often through my alarm, and am half-useless at work the next day. I enjoy the exercising, but I...

Losing motivation because of friends

About four months ago, me and a few of my friends started lifting weights in the gym. They started doing split body routines their friends made up for them, but I started on the Fierce 5 workout (which is full body, obviously). Despite the fact that all my lifts are much higher than theirs, and...
