When was his last shed? They sometimes slow down for a day or 2 prior to a shed. If the room is cooler you might think about changing the basking light to a higher wattage or move it closer to the basking branch. That could also affect his activity.

Adding to the ammount of uv and heat will promote digestion and therefore more activity. No more than 90℉basking. What are you using for light?
If adoesn't help then call a local herp or vet

Why do you not feed crickets?

Mealworms have a hard exo skeleton, which can lead to impaction when over fed.

It is not good to limit his diet anyway.

He could be less active because he needs, more food, different bugs, needs to shed, is impacted, needs more heat, or a bigger cage.
