To poetikal, as for more information about me, I’m 23 years old, about 12.5 stone and about 13% BF. The reason I’m concerned about overtraining was originally fairly private for a reason, but as you seem to be making a bit of a mocking point about it, here goes.
I was 19 stone 6 years ago, and through cardio 6 x a week and a pretty much crash diet I cut down to 10 stone, and clinically anorexic in the process.
I still remember the way I’d feel every day back then, shattered and exhausted, but still I’d tell myself that taking a break meant taking my eye off the ball and that I’d lapse.
So thus my mentality became that I’d just do anything I could as often as I could, and look where it got me. So now, I’m aware that the same rules obviously don’t apply, infact opposites for muscle growth, and I’m just wary of going back to those ways.
As for my lifts, snigger away.
all for 12 reps x 3:
Deadlift 100kg + bar
Squat 55kg + bar
Military Press 25kg + bar.
Bench: 26kg dumbbell each side.
BOR: 26kg dumbbells each side.[/quote]
that was surely brave of you to be forthright with that information. it surely is a smart reason to not overtrain. anywho…
a few posts ago someone mentioned training every day. i dont advocate that all the time, but i do believe that increasing your frequency can be beneficial for a training cycle
as far as doing TBT, i was more concerned with the total sets, and someone made a valid point when they said include only one huge lift (squat/dead) in a session so as to allow you to increase sets on all lifts. you dont want to fatigue yourself too early.
i understand where youre coming from with your fear of overtraining. i feel like it may be more beneficial to counsel you in PM form, so hit me up in a message.
your lifts arent abysmal, so dont be so hard on yourself
in summary, it may be time to start a split cycle considering youve been doing TBT for so long. do that. lets develop one together that fits your schedule
PS and a big one…cardio 6x a week would fatigue me more than bodybuilding style training 6x a week (NOT THAT YOU NEED TO BE DOING THAT) just saying, dont expect different training modalities to affect you the same
