You CAN have it all
Over the last two months I have been doing “WAY TOO MUCH”:
EVERY DAY 100/100/100
that’s right, 100 total presses (combination of incline, military, pushpress…) with heaviest weight I’m willing to complete all the reps
100 multi-joint lower body (squat, ft squat, deadlift, single leg dl, pistols) i allowed about 30 leg press reps/day just to pad my stats
NO PLANNED DAYS OFF–i find that life deals me a day off about once a week whether I like it or not, so I’ve done this 5-6 days per week.
Am I overtraining? I have gained strength in all lifts while LOSING bodyfat. I would assume that I’ve gained muscle as well, but I find that the mirror can be deceiving so I just worry about strength. Also worth mentioning–I ate virtually 0 carbs 6 days per week and had one night of binge drinking/week. The last two weeks I have eliminated the drinking and the progress is astounding.
