I have come to the conclusion that I have overtrained for years. I have changed my routine, but now am feeling a bit lazy-feel like muscles aren't getting enough.
I was hitting every muscle in my upper body twice a week throughout college. Legs were sporadic at best. Anyway, after all that time, some moderate increases, and definitely some good definition, but still thinner than I'd like. New routine is something like this:
Legs and abs work their way in when I'm feeling especially ambitious.
4 workouts throughout 7 days.
These four workouts are rather intense, lasting 45min to hour.
Finally to my question-How can I ensure I am not undertraining with this routine? Should my intensity be such that my chest stays sore for days after a workout, so it takes the whole week to recover, or should recovery take a day or two?
Thanks for any advice...This is my first post and I'm excited to be here!
