I will ask this as a general question with a specific situation in mind.
Can you overtrain doing high frequency resitance training with low intensity high-ish volume workouts (not to failure or even close)?
I am currnetly easing up on weight training at the mo’ trying to focus on bis and quad (which as you can see from old photos i am lacking in) and improving technical aspect of olympic based lifts and squats.
I am happy with lats and chest hence the idea for this change from the typical 4 sets of 4-6 reps i normally stick to.
I pretty much wont be doing more than 2-3 sets a week on chest or vertical back movts (if any, see how i go). However will be doing multiple supersets of pull ups and press ups (5x10 and 5x20) for five days of the week. Now these are obviously not to failure (only body weight but are performed sun, mon, tues, thur, fri)each week just adding a set keeping rest to about 90 sec. by the 3rd day i am feeling it but after the day off i am fine. not on any supps at all at the mo either.
Any thoughts generally or specifically, or just a shit post?
