    The leaner you get = Less energy due to lower bodyfat levels and your body basically starting to fight itself from the prolonged caloric deficit. This is common for many who go through contest prep and start to lose sleep, start to lose energy/mood/libido

    Depends on what you want to do with your goal
    Do you want to add size/strength?
    do you want to maintain?
    do you want to cut further?

    That is up to you and your overall goal.

    It will take time for strength to come back after a long cut.

    You could always try a lean bulk with healthy fats. That way you maintain a level of leanness while still putting on muscle and size

    IMO no such thing as being too lean! (when talking about competitions that is) But for general life/fitness purposes, balance is key.
