I’ve seem to come across a problem here lately; I do not know if this is problem stemming from society (pop culture tends to lean toward the feminine male for some reason) or that people are just pussies today. Then again, I don’t have to worry with kids and a nagging wife that has my balls clenched in a death grip.
I work out six (Hell, sometimes seven if its a great week)days a week, and I use high intensity/high volume. I get plenty of rest, give my body time to repair, and eat like a hog-if I don’t then I might as well open the door for overtraining. Now here comes the million dollar question-Why is it that people scream that I’m overtraining everytime I tell them what I do? They ask, I tell them, then I get a large speech about how I’m borderline on overtraining and that I need to work out only 3-4 days.
Please explain how I’m borderline overtraining if I’m making gains and having no symptoms whatsoever. Now I ask you fellow T-brethren-Do you think that 6 days a week, high volume/high intensity regimen with enough rest, time for repair, and large enough quantity of food overtraining?
…Or are you like the others who think I am overtraining (and consider sweating a warning sign of deadly dehydration)?
I also work 40-50 hours a week manual labor, and that’s the kicker for most people.
