Last two months...
2 sets Bench
2 sets clean/press
2 sets tris
2 sets bis
Retrain every 5 days or so.
1 rep short of failure.
3 sets incline
3 sets clean/press
3 sets front squats
3 sets tri
3 sets bi
I changed up all exercises and today I am very sore in my back,chest,tri,bi,wrist and thighs. So did I OverTrain, Yes or No???
PS:Can overtraining symptoms be overcome by eating more protein? And do I start off light next workout and gradually increase weight instead of resuming where I left off?????
I dont know if it's "overtraining" or not but you just added more sets than you were used to. I think it's normal to be a bit sore.
Also why do you do almost everything on one day? Do you just do the same full body workout every 5 days?
You don't overtrain in one day.
Yes I do the whole body and then wait until I feel systematically rested and then repeat. Is this too much?
Then why are my muscles SCREAMING this morning.lol?Originally Posted by Anthony
Because you did something more than usual. That doesn't mean you over trained. When you consistently start to feel exhausted after 10 hours of sleep, lose strength, lose size, etc ... then you might be over training. It's something that happens over a long period of time and it's not really that common anyway.

Thanks man I feel better already. So what can I do to releive myself from the pain I'm in (not to mention I'll be more sore tommorow,ouch) now?Originally Posted by Anthony
Hot bath + epsom salts, massage, active recovery (light work to increase blood flow), and maybe ibuprofen if it's really bad. And obviously lots of sleep and good food.
Thanks Anthony, I will take your advice right now.
P.S. I also played basketball for an 1 1/2 ; will activity like this slow down my recovery time?
What about ETS?
Might help you recover quicker so you could work out more than once a week.
Does that program work for you? I dont think I'd gain off one day a week.
Some light ball would be a good form of active recovery, although it really depends on your personaly work capacity, etc.
ETS definitely helps, but it's not a quick fix.
ETS sounds good. I'll order some when I get some more protein...
Exactly.Originally Posted by Anthony
You trained your body past it's conditioned point for one day. It was most likely a good thing.
ETS seems to help a lot but like anthony said it's not gonna do anything for your current soreness.
