These questions are unfortunately beyond my knowledge.

Yes, sleep loss is an enormous factor. Two days also isn't really enough to get back on track. You really should try a full week off.

comment How to exercise muscles that are prone to strains?
Do you strain them during sports, or lifting? Do you do any strength work on those muscles?

Could you detail your exercise routine? Even without that information, this sounds like a clear-cut case of overtraining.

comment What is a bodyweight-only strength workout with a few compound exercises?
I'm not concerned with the long-term reach so much as the short-term return on investment and long-term ability to load the lower body.

@Mephisto For ab work, I prefer stabilization work, as with barbells, rollouts, or L-sits.

My answer to an almost identical question may be relevant.

comment What are you views on progress between rep range vs. fixed reps?
@nLinked The SS routine is a fine approach for someone looking to get bigger and develop a base of strength before switching to a routine that focuses more on the 8-12 rep range. I'd keep doing SS as written.

comment What are you views on progress between rep range vs. fixed reps?
@nLinked If my goal were size, I'd do something very close to Arnold's beginner program and I'd eat like a horse. Check out the link Freakyuser posted for discussion of rep ranges: 4-6 is good for beginners because it's a good balance between strength and size; 8 to 12 is better for experienced lifters with the goal of muscle size.

How much weight are we talking about, and how fast did you add weight to the bar?

comment Training Program to become stronger alpine Skier?
If you are not already generally strong, the best answer is probably to avoid sport-specific strength training and work on general strength training first.
