    I’ve been having this going on for 2 years started eating more recently started to feel the pump come back increased my workouts now I feel like shit again I do full body 3x a week hardcardio I love doing cardio but I’m guessing eat more less cardio?

  2. Aimee Hilbrands on December 20, 2021 at 3:41 pm

    I have all these symptoms 🙁

  3. Michael Nouri on December 20, 2021 at 3:42 pm

    great info! my cortisol is through the roof right now… I just got back into the gym after 3-4 years, and went back in the gym on god mode. This was a bad decision as I was not giving my body enough time to heal from the workouts, and as a result my cortisol levels went up.

    I started taking extra rest days, and eating a bit more *I was eating 500-1000 below maintenance, but upped calorie intake* to hopefully curb the increase of cortisol/balance my hormones. For the first 4 weeks of getting back into the gym focus on nutrition/sleep/recovery as going all out will hurt your gains…. until body realizes that working out is the new normal again.

    Thanks for the great video.

    I dont want to believe the "eat more, train less" piece… but you mentioned literally every symptoms that I’ve been feeling during my fat loss journey

    Wow just wow, mindpump is spitting gospel

  7. Jorge Roman on December 20, 2021 at 3:48 pm

    Wish I could like this video more than once

  8. Adams C on December 20, 2021 at 3:48 pm

    I recommend a step tracker and doing ur best to eat back calories from exercise

  9. Welco on December 20, 2021 at 3:51 pm

    CrossFit isn’t healthy

  10. Ian Douglas on December 20, 2021 at 3:54 pm

    Every warning sign he laid out I have been living with for years. Thank you for this information

  11. Gretta Garboux on December 20, 2021 at 3:54 pm

    My brain has programmed my hand to feed my mouth once a day ONLY and I’m lucky if i can get 800 cals in a day. I wouldn’t even know how to eat more food unless it could be injected into my stomach. I workout 4 days week but my body will not release the weight. I’m a prisoner in my own body.

  12. Rikkles on December 20, 2021 at 3:55 pm

    I honestly never thought what I’m dealing with right now is related to overtraining. I’m so glad this video was suggested to me and now everything makes sense!! I’m giving this channel a follow

  13. Wellneos (Fantasy Football) on December 20, 2021 at 3:55 pm

    Great Podcast, recovery is just as important as your workouts.

  14. DOKDONTSTOP on December 20, 2021 at 3:58 pm

    How do we figure out hormone profile?

  15. Hardbodiez Gym on December 20, 2021 at 3:59 pm

    This is one of the best podcasts I’ve heard in a long time. Way to go guys.

  16. Destiny Kish on December 20, 2021 at 4:01 pm

    What about extended fasting? Studies have shown it raises BMI and speed up metabolism.

  17. Eszter Horvath on December 20, 2021 at 4:02 pm

    ! Keine Impfpflicht! für nur vorläufig zugelassenen Impfstoff! IN USA GEKIPPT! Das weiss die Regierung und EU Parlament
    0 bzw keine Nebenwirkungen?!
    Mrna Experiment nicht unterstützen, da gegen Nürnberger Codex
    Impfdurchbruch heisst, Impfung nützt nichts?! Jawohl!
    Werbung für erst vorläufig zugelassen Impfstoff

    Stefan bringt es auf den Punkt – Bei diesem Irrsinn zu behaupten, man habe wissenschaftliche Studien durchgeführt, ist absolut krank im Kopf 🤬

    ➡️ Die Adjuvantien, fälschlicherweise als Hilfsstoffe in Impfstoffen bezeichnet, sind unheimlich gefährlich

    ➡️ Keine einzige mRNA-Impfung hat jemals in Tierversuchen funktioniert – IM GEGENTEIL!

    ➡️ In allen Impfstoffstudien werden keine Placebo-Studien durchgeführt – In der Placebogruppe sind die sogenannten Adjuvantien (Hilfssubstanzen) immer enthalten.

    ➡️ Diese Studien werden in den ärmsten Ländern durchgeführt, bei denen keiner etwas mitbekommt.

    Einfügung (JWD): Wenn die von Dr. Jane Ruby präsentierte Meldung, – "UAL-Forscher in Spanien decken die tatsächlichen Inhaltsstoffe im Pfizer-Biontech Impfstoff auf" – zutrifft, dann bestehen die Corona-Impfstoffe fast zu 100% aus Adjuvantien in Form von Graphenoxid-Nanopartikeln. Was wiederum klar macht, dass die Reise in Richtung "Transhumanismus", zu menschlichen Robotern gehen soll.
    "Jede der sechs Impfdosen aus der Impfstoffflasche bestand zu 99,99203% (747 ng) aus Graphenoxid. Der Rest war RNA 0,00797% (6 ng).there is no Virus, it is the injection Pharma gibt ihr Geld ?!o
    Alle vor Nürnberger Gerichte
    Es kann keine Impfpflicht für vorläufig zugelassenen Stoff geben.
    Waren nie am limit. 25000 Intensivbetten, nie mehr als 5700 pro Tag..3500 Städte, mindestens 1 gab nie Triage, nur in den Medien!!?
    Belgien..Alle auf Intensivstation sind geimpft schaut solange es da ist ….
    ?!.. sorge persönlich dafür, dass alle Verbrecher vor Nürnberger Gerichte kommen, so wahr mir Gott helfe
    Pharmahuren zur Rechenschaft ziehen….mz

  18. Rune Helvik on December 20, 2021 at 4:07 pm

    Great video. Mentally I dont like it, but I need to eat more to recover better. Needs over wants!

  19. RG S on December 20, 2021 at 4:08 pm

    Always love when you guys feature Jason. He knows how to communicate and distill information so excellently and is the perfect complement to Sal’s ability to do this. Overtraining and undereating is so common and has messed me up so much. I think that you should do another video podcast about adrenal fatigue/insufficiency now that gyms are re-opening because people are going to be going to extremes to lose the pandemic poundage. I tell all my friends about MindPump and have bought your programs.

  20. Alex Hernandez on December 20, 2021 at 4:10 pm

    Been there done that. Trouble is, when you’re goal oriented and really determined for a result, nobody can tell you you’re doing it wrong. You have to hit the wall and learn the hard way. Still suffering some of the effects of doing all of this ten years later. I don’t sweat anymore; I think I fried my nervous system. Whatever you do, take care of your body. You only get one.

  21. JimiRay on December 20, 2021 at 4:12 pm

    now i know why i cant lose weight and my sleeps gone down . thanks man . and i wondered why my bodybuilding days i was leaner. too much cardio!!

  22. David G on December 20, 2021 at 4:12 pm

    Adrenal fatigue isn’t actually a thing. There is no evidence that it actually exists as a medical condition. Stop spreading pseudoscientific bullshit.

  23. Jonatan Olsén on December 20, 2021 at 4:13 pm

    Eat lots of carbs if you train alot. It will turn your body into a carb and fat burning furnace. This is the way i can do 2 sessions per day, eat loads of food ane still recover well, and loose fat at the same time. This is how top athletes eat.

  24. Armah Akporowho on December 20, 2021 at 4:14 pm

    Insomnia 😑😑😑

  25. Tim Parkes on December 20, 2021 at 4:15 pm

    I dunno how this video has only had 47,000 views. So many people could relate to this, I’ve watched is 4 or 5 times since it was uploaded

  26. luke Airborne on December 20, 2021 at 4:15 pm

    Any correlation with keto at all here

  27. imarchello on December 20, 2021 at 4:17 pm

    Thanks, I really enjoy your content!

  29. Digital Torch on December 20, 2021 at 4:19 pm

    Iv being going crazy making doctors visits. You guys have just nailed my journey. Any supplements you guys recommend? I’m male, was very muscly and now totally thin. Looking to join the gym again.

  30. Jesse Timm Miller on December 20, 2021 at 4:22 pm

    The body keeps the score. Great info. I like the swearing. Makes this shit more relatable.

  31. Jinlu Wang on December 20, 2021 at 4:22 pm

    Been eating more with more trainings alongside with CrossFit classes. Need to dial in the sleep.

  32. Mr.Proppaah on December 20, 2021 at 4:22 pm

    eat more train less?? don’t works here mate

  33. Wil RockQ on December 20, 2021 at 4:24 pm

    This is fantastic information that I’ve never heard before. I believe the cursing and "dudes" detract from the message and the speaker’s authority as an expert. The speaker would benefit from eliminating these.

  34. Gambit on December 20, 2021 at 4:25 pm

    I’m so guilty of this!

  35. Enrique stewart on December 20, 2021 at 4:28 pm

    They use all these terms to make it seem like they know what they’re talking! They’re the reason why so many people are out of shape. They make it sound so complicated when it is a simple as consistently moving your ass! The guy to the right use alot of profanity to be an fitness expert! There is no way that you’re doing Cardio for an hour, and not losing weight! Bs

  36. Dimas Avila on December 20, 2021 at 4:28 pm

    51 lifting 3 days a week no cardio high protein gains showing.

  37. Thrill Billy on December 20, 2021 at 4:29 pm

    Glad I found this information. Originally I starting a weight loss program on November 1, 2020 using dumb bells, stationary bike and yard work. I dropped 23 lbs in 14 weeks. I started having all of the exact same symptoms 4 weeks ago. I have 15 more pounds to lose. Time to change it up. Thank you

  38. RosesareRed38 on December 20, 2021 at 4:30 pm

    WAIT- some one finally answered my question after ages! I’ve been yo-yo dieting for so many years and at the end of last year I crashed! Every single time I dieted, my adrenal fatigue would show up. I was sleeping poorly, thyroid issues, hair loss, muscle and joint pain, anxiety, depression, binge eating, slow metabolism basically ALL of the symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue/metabolic damage. Now, I’ve been reverse dieting and I gained fat. I’m currently over weight by 20-30 lbs. The thing that I wanted to say was that every time I cut calories too low (700 below maintenance) my heart starts palpitations because of what this guy talked about NERVE ADAPTATIONS.

  39. TheAcdcnz on December 20, 2021 at 4:31 pm

    I defs don’t eat enough.

  40. Trent Krupka on December 20, 2021 at 4:32 pm

    This was so helpful and reaffirming.🙏🙏🙏

  41. TheDrCrow on December 20, 2021 at 4:34 pm

    I’m an amateur boxer and I remember a few months during the first wave of covid I was prepping hard for the season however as soon as lockout came I was forced on to a short break, however during that short break my athleticism crashed immediately, my body refused to do a single pushup, or run at my previous capacity. However when I got into boxing that affect reversed immediately, I could run my previous time, do pushups, and regain my athleticism

  42. Jayden Ulbert on December 20, 2021 at 4:35 pm

    Valuable fucking info!! I train Muay Thai/MMA 5 days a week, few hours a night. Also adding weights again 3-4x a week. I’ve been smarter in my approach, but hearing early on set signs for burning out was very good to hear. I notice a lot of these symptoms at times but would always struggle to pinpoint where these issues stemmed from.

  43. Marie E on December 20, 2021 at 4:36 pm

    I found this video today and everything you describe is me. I’ve been researching adrenal fatigue and learned yesterday that having your left kidney removed instead of the right one for donation to my brother shuts down the adrenal gland on that side. It explains so much as the endocronlogist keep changing my thyroid meds and nothing improves. I have Hashimoto’s, too.
    I used to work out hard on very little sleep for years and continued after the kidney operation and began to get chronic exaustion. I’m beginning to learn why now. 🙁
    Thanks for this video.

  44. Angel Espinosa on December 20, 2021 at 4:36 pm

  46. Judd Otto on December 20, 2021 at 4:37 pm

    I been training real dumb

  47. Flex Dawg on December 20, 2021 at 4:37 pm

    This happened to me.

    My routines became and more intense and my calories didn’t adjust accordingly, so my maintenance became 2000 calories at 184 lbs and I was working out 6 days a week.

    I didn’t know what was happening, so this wasn’t the best approach, but I lowered by 250 and did that until I got down to 15% bf. Once I did that I increased to fine maintenance and I had to keep increasing because my metabolism was returning. I’m currently 173 and am eating 2100 and increasing each time I lose. I want to be as heavy as I can at 15% bf. If I go over, I immediately drop down just a little to get back to 15% and then start the process over of increasing. I did make it to 2250 before but gained a little on my waist, so I started over. Right now I just know maintenance is somewhere between 2050 and 2250. I will keep doing this until my body settles in and I get my true maintenance.

    I sleep better, have better sex, am stronger, have a better metabolism and don’t have issues with my cortisol like before. My SHBG and free test were low, but they are slowly returning to normal.

    I am going to make sure this never happens again because it’s absolute hell to deal with, especially when you have no clue what’s going on. More is not better, so please do not kill yourself in the gym or you will pay for it. Do just enough to stimulate, not annihilate and then get your ass out of the gym and eat enough calories to rebuild.

  48. Suni Sun on December 20, 2021 at 4:37 pm

    How can I ask my question on your podcast?

  49. Eric Cox on December 20, 2021 at 4:37 pm

    Thanks for info. Hope my wife listens now

  50. Brittany Baker on December 20, 2021 at 4:39 pm
