So it seems like any routine I do that has some volume (10-12 sets per muscle or so) I end up overtraining and regressing. That's not even a lot of volume. I sleep 7-8 hours a night and have zero problems gaining weight. I tend to overbulk and have to lose some fat because I start looking chunky. How the hell do I avoid this because I am damn frustrated. Haven't made much progress in my upper body in a long time.
Don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I've also noticed after one all out set for a muscle like bench for chest, my strength drops dramatically for the rest of the workout. Seems like most guys can do many sets on big lifts while keeping their strength somewhat respectable, but I'm spent after a couple hard sets on a muscle.
