Hi,I’m finishing my third week of the first ramp of this program in the 6 workouts per week modality. By reading experiences arround the web and specially the big thread about that program in this forums, it seems that by now I should be starting to feel very tired since I’m entering the accute overtraining state. But it seems that I could still go perfectly a couple of weeks more continuing adding volume and cutting rest periods.
I’m not messing with the rest periods (I always put the alarm in the phone so it rings 1 minute 20 seconds after I finish each set, right now rest periods according to the program are 1 minute and half) and I take all the sets to the point in which compromising the form even more will be extremely dangerous or completely pointless since I wouldn’t even been hiting the muscle group I’m working.
Also, my stats are 5’10, 205 lb, 22 years old, 5 years lifting (not perfectly because the first 3-4 years I was being mislead by wrong training and dieting advice).
The thing is, is that I have a very high threshold in terms of overtraining, I sleep at least 9-10 hours per day and my diet doesn’t lack any macro or micronutrient, so it takes like a month and a half on this kind of frequency, with like 30%-50% more volume than BBB has to reach overtraining. I’ve reached that point before in my life even reaching the chronic overtraining state and then injuring myself so I’m familiar with the sensation.
So now the question, should I jump on the supergrowth phase, even if I’m not yet close to overtraining, or should I continue this ramp increasing the amount of volume and reducing rest until I reach that point then do the supergroth phase?
