View Full Version : Am I Over Trainning

02-05-2004, 01:20 PM
I've been going week after week for months now. I was messing up a couple of the weeks, IE: bad form, pain, etc. Now I have it straight and am progressing weekly on the weights. I have been stuck at 145 lbs, bulking of course.

Should I be resting say a week? Also I found a gym I can use so I'll be transitioning over to it. I have been working out 4 days a week body splits.

Progessing = no overtraining.

Just curious. Why do you think you're overtraining?

Why is this in this forum?

I doubt you are overtraining if you are only working out 4 days a week.

cause I have been stuck at 145 lbs for a month and then some.

Maybe all you need to continue gaining weight is to increase your cals

What is your routine? When you're no longer progressing, it's time to change things.

I use enough weight for reps between 4-8.

Bench - 3 SETS
Decline - 3 SETS

Bent Over Row - 3 SETS

Tricep Pushdown - 3 SETS
Bicep Curl - 3 SETS

Leg Press - 3 SETS
Leg Curl - 3 SETS

Ok now I've been consistant on that. I'm still figuring out what I can do for my back so it has been neglected. But I don't understand why I'm not gaining more lbs. Still stuck at 145. I've been using whey protein after workouts and eating tuna as well. I have been eating a lot of different types of meat and oatmeal too.

Any thoughts you all?

I definatly agree and even if you werent stuck i would change the programme.
Try something like the wbb1 routine. I splits up th body part a lot better giving preference to the bigger parts such as back and legs. You need to introduce squats for legs deadlift for back etc
