Calories are Calories, right? and you need a surplus of calories with the right nutrients to gain lean mass with any excess going to fat.
When you overtrain you don't gain lean mass because your body can't recover from workout damage fast enough to build new muscle
So... even if you are eating a "clean" diet and are overtraining do the extra calories go to Fat?

you'll get smaller and fatter
Extra calories above what you burn and use to build are just that.....extra calories. Excess will be stored as fat.
