    Hi, I'm new on this forum.
    I posted this in the women's area but no responses. So putting it out further.
    I am doing 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? Because I don't want to decrease it and lose weight. 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 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?

    Also, how do you gain lean muscle and minimal fat?
