    hello. so first of all for a long time now i had insomnia, but recently it have gotten worst. i stopped training for around a month or so to see if it improved, but i got more depressed and can’t remember correctly, but i sleeped less and had less motivation to do things, but heres the thing, i went back to lifting (only 3 days) and sometimes i feel worst during and after the gym. anxiety gets worst and sometimes i feel burnout. idk if this is mental because im an overthinker, have anxiety, depression and constant stress, but i feel like i now can’t sleep longer like before. now im getting min of 6 hours and it’s extremely hard to get the 8.

    should we actually lift weights when low t? we know training releases cortisol, gym cortisol + outside stress might be a huge impact?

    any experience?

    what im planning is establishing a schedule to sleep at the same time. try to relax. if this doesn’t work i guess ill stop lifting for months to see if it works.


    other thing im experiencing is that im worried about getting bad sleep etc.
