When I had a really intensive training session (weights), the day after I'm so exhausted that I can't do anything the whole day. I can't even concentrate, so my work performance (desk job) degrades to such a level that I am thinking about avoiding those sessions during the week.
The problem is that I don't see any improvement at all in that matter. I train for about a year now and although I definitely made progress in my workout, I'm still exhausted on the following day as on day one.
As other people don't seem to suffer from this as much as I do, I wonder if I do something wrong with my after-workout nutrition.
Normally I go for high protein food, and if I did cardio, something isotonic.
Am I doing something wrong? Or do I just need to increase the amount or duration I take supplements (protein/isotonic/etc.) afterwards?
Food: I don't have a strict nutrition plan, but post-workout I mostly eat chicken, salmon, steak, vegetables + supplements (protein shake/bar, isotonic)
Exercises: Basically everything strength related (back, arms, chest, neck, legs...)
