    I have been inactive after I fell with my motorcycle but have recuperated fully in order for me to start training again. Our boxing gym opened yesterday so I have been training my self quite hard at home to regain my fitness. A bit of background first: I do floor exercises (push ups, burpees, sit ups, etc) a little weights with dumb and barbell and then do at least 8 to 10 rounds on heavy bag and maybe two on the double-end bag (3 min and 1 min rest). Very little resting in between movements. I take creatine and the last week BCAA about 30 min before and during my training.

    Question: Yesterday felt fine, did all my floor and weight training but come round 5 I felt like e deflated balloon all of a sudden. No energy, battled to hold my arm up properly. Kept going for another two rounds battling and finally gave up. Rested first time for about two minutes and then went for usual 1.5 km run. Started off good , did uphill no problem and again I had this feeling of hitting a wall. Experienced that when I did cycling but not in my boxing.
    Why? In the last 7 days I trained Sat,Sun, Tue,Wed Sun and yesterday. I don't think it is a case of over training, not with that many days not training. Am quite fit for my age but didn't enjoy this deflated balloon feeling!

    Any advice and or suggestions? Could it be the BCAA? I do sparring but no fighting but my first class in more than 4 months only tonight.

    Thanks in advance.

    You're over training.

    Take 3 or 4 days off, eat healthily, let your body recover.

    If it happens again then analyse your diet, your routines (same muscle groups to allow extra rest / too heavy / too many) and your life. For example - are you stressed at all?

    I was going to advise you not to hit the ball because you could break your hands.

    The blood work up is a good idea.

    Also work different body part groupings on different days is a good idea.

    Knob lifts usually help

    Definitely sounds like CNS fatigue to me. I suggest a few days off with maybe some warm ups, stretching and shadow boxing. Return after this for three days and notice the change. If you can't stay out of the gym, same thing. Resist the urge to push yourself too much. Recovery is most underrated.

    Blood check up is a good idea, your iron levels could be low, not enough greens in your diet. I had the same thing.

    could also be a bit of overtraining too.

    get some rest and have your blood checked out.
