    Hi ladies, I'm new on this forum.
    I do resistance training and am beginning calisthenics.
    I feel like I've been overdoing the exercise for a while as I'm constantly sore and fatigued, and have been pushing myself every day to exhaustion to complete workouts, often don't have the energy to do other things.
    I am wondering about what happens if I very, very gradually decrease my training over the course of a few weeks' time? Does this work similarly to reverse dieting, where people want to increase their caloric intake without gaining weight so they increase in really tiny increments - can you sort of do this with exercise, ie. can you really gradually decrease your exercise/training output without gaining weight if it is done gradually enough? and at what speed would you try and do this?
    I wouldn't want to decrease it by terribly much, maybe by about just an hour a week.
    Anyone able to offer advice?
