Is it possible to overtrain on a PH???
I am on my 5th week of a 6 week cycle of havoc 4 caps/day and Halo extreme 2 caps/day. I cant tell if I am overtraining or just get some sides from the supps. I feel tired throughout the day I get about 8-9 of sleep a night and wake up not feeling rested.
7 years of lifting
My training regimen
Mondays: BJJ (1 hr), back and bi's (1-1.5 hrs), 15 min interval cardio, core (15 min)
Tuesdays: Wrestling (1 hr), boxing(1 hr), Chest tri's (45 min), abs(15 min)
Wednesdays: BJJ(1 hr), legs(30), 15 min interval cardio
Thursdays: Wrestling (1 hr), boxing(1 hr), shoulders(30 min), core (15 min)
Fridays: Back and bi's(1.5 hrs), interval cardio (15 min) abs, (15 min)
Saturdays: Chest, Tri's, and legs (1.75 hrs), 1.5 mile run
I am on a solid diet
Fats: 78 g
Carbs: 285 g
Protein: 250 g
I am eating all lean meats non processed, whole wheat carbs, fats are coming from dairy, nuts, and seeds. I have a cheat day on fridays

I would think a combination of both. I would continuously increase calories every week maybe just a small amount (around 100-200),
The side effect of being tired is quite common on a ph or any steroid for that matter when test is not being supplemented with it. It's part of being partially or fully shutdown.

My goal is to get in great shape and get cut. The numbers i use were given to me by a program in order to loose fat and maintain muscle

With that level fo activity, at least 4000kcals/day would be much better for your performance. That's about what my maintenance was and I was ~20lbs lighter than you at the time.

Thanks everybody I really appreciate it. I know I'm coming off as a dumbass but all my life i played football and its been lift big eat big. Now that I am done I wanted to get in really good shape and just went off what I have read through 100s of different of articles about getting cut. So I appreciate the help and the patience with me

With 400kcals cut, you could potentially be in a 2800 calorie diet deficit with just diet adjustment alone. Just do that long enough, say 12 weeks, you could burn nearly 10lbs of boyd weight off with a majority being fat. Just a thought.

i weight ~same as you, my energy expenditure is nowhere near yours, and i train with bodycomp/low bf% goals always in mind..my average daily intake is 4k cals (yesterday i had 4500)
sure metabolism plays a part, but now you are getting a sense of the massive undereating you have been doing
you can get away with that for a little while; long-term, it will catch up with you

Last question. So adding in these extra calories should I gradually add them up or starting tomorrow should I consume 4000 a day

I agree with all of the above. If you're waking up tired then I posit that your recovery is hampered due to the sheer stress put on your body by the combination of your training volume and calorie deficit. I stupidly thought the same thing last year. I trained with a heavy training volume whilst on epistane on a severe calorie deficit thinking that the PH would compensate. But it didn't. Over the course of 2 months my symptoms worsened until I started suffering from constant fatigue, insommnia and anxiety. It took me 6-9 months to fully recover with a period of 2-3 months out of the gym completely. Listen to your body.
