I'm a beginner and I started lifting weights at the beginning of this year. I do workout 3 days per week (Sun, Tue, and Thu) I kept that up over the past two and half months. When I do lifting, I focus on specific muscle groups, that is a day for legs, a day for chest and arms, a day for my back and a day for my abs. So, there will be a muscle group won't be trained in a week (legs or abs).
I train for 30 minutes, where I push myself as best as I can, and I switch between machines targeting a different group of muscles, so I don't just sit down on a machine waiting to rest. For example, I switch between biceps and triceps machines. And I usually, train myself to the point I fail to do anything (where my muscles completely stuck and cannot move).
I noticed that on the night after training (I train before afternoon) that I don't sleep well, and recently I completely get into insomnia issue. For example, yesterday was an abs day and I couldn't sleep for 3 hours! I tried to increase my carbs intake but it didn't work, so I'm wondering what the possibility that I'm overtraining myself?
Should I take a week rest or so? I watched this video from a channel I like. However, I'm afraid if I do that, that I will lose my motivation and stop keeping my protein synthesis on fire!
I usually stay calories deficit, but I'm taking no less than 90 grams of protein. My weight is 73 kg and 1.78 cm tall (and no, I'm not thin, there is some fat around my waist.. skinny fat? maybe I'm not sure)
Please let me know If I'm doing anything wrong here.
