I've been making steady progress since starting squats and deadlifts last September. The loads now feel heavy to me. I get to the gym twice a week and alternate exercises as follows:
Pull up (parallel grip)
Pull up (wide overhand grip)
2 warm up sets and 3 work sets of six reps for each exercise.
After each workout I feel great but fairly wiped out until I get food in. In the following hours and lying in bed later on I feel wired. It's hard to explain. It's a twitchy, nervy, slightly spaced feeling that I'm attributing to the effect of the workout on my central nervous system.
Is there anything that can be done to dampen this effect?
Having run around the gym like a maniac doing millions of exercises for years with little or no results I'm very happy with this pared down approach.
Any advice will be much appreciated.
