Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here goes.
Early february I decided that I was fed up with sitting still and growing fat, so I started working out with a friend of mine. Since then I’ve been doing a 5-split, and I’ve cleaned up my diet.
Lately though, my shoulders and elbows have started aching, and the pain has gotten so bad that I can hardly move my arms. Needless to say, I’ve taken a break from training now for a couple of days.
So, to the bright heads of T-Nation, does this sound like a symptom of overtraining? I am in the middle of my exams, so stress levels are high and sleep is basicaly something that happens to other people Thinking about going to a doctor, but most doctors here are worthless, especially if I am overtrained.
monday: shoulders (+abs)
friday: chest (+triceps and abs)
saturday: back (+biceps)
My diet on a usual day:
8am: 2eggs and one bowl of oatmeal
11am: about 50g rice and 200g fat free chicken
3pm: same as lunch, with small variations
6pm: 2-300g chicken or other meat with some veggies
10pm: protein shake
I also drink a protein shake with some carbofuel after training sessions.
