I think training "too hard" is actually very hard to do. Overtraining or what I have read of it happens rarely. I know you can train till you can't move or hurt but thats DOMS. If you can overtrain congratulations I haven't been able to do it yet! haha
i missed this post earlier.
OVERTRAINING IS A MYTH
ok so maybe it's not a myth, but let's be serious here for a second. Olympic athletes overtrain, and it happens so incredibly rarely that they don't even think about it.
I hear guys in my gym that train 3 times a week on a chest/biceps/chest split who won't add extra sessions because they're worried they're overtraining. It just isn't going to happen to you.
I totally agree with John here, if you've managed to overtrain, then good for you! Your work ethic is clearly better than 99.99999% of the rest of the world. Scale it back a tiny bit and I look forward to seeing you in London 2012
There is obviously a chance that you can overtrain but it's really not something to worry about all you have to do is listen to your body. I can't tell you if your chest is sore. I can't tell you if you are fatigued. If your tired take a nap change your diet or drink coffee?
All I know is I TRIED to overtrain and couldn't do it. Maybe I didn't try hard enough but like I said congrats to the few that have supposedly done it!
