I really love lifting weights.....and I really have alot of stuff down right now...like my routine and my eating and everything. I finally got a list of supplements that i really like...and just seem to be making gains and looking better everyday.
The only problem i seem to be running into is the fact that i keep getting sick. I use to get sick once a year tops...now that i have started lifting weights...i have been sick around 4 times, 2 of which have happened since december. Now i read that overtraining can cause you to become sick but...i cant see how im overtraining...and if i am overtraining...i cant imagine how little id have to train to fix it.
I train 6 days a week...and i know like this seems like a lot...but to me it makes NO sense to train a muscle group once a week. I cant see how that would produce gains. I work each muscle group twice a week. I have been eating a ton. Is it just a coincidence that i have been getting sick? or is it a direct side effect of the training? This really sucks because it fucks my whole schedule up. Did anyone else experience this while they were starting out?
