Alright, Im going to stop here because I think my point is clear and you guys are just nitpicking. I just used 6000 calories as an over-exaggerated example. Of course thats way too much, but my point was that eating more will not prevent or solve an overtrainng problem.
The problem lies in the lifters ability to stress his/her body to the point that they cannot recover from it between workouts.
Actually you are the one who is nitpicking. The OP was asking if people generally see overtraining as a real possibility, or is progress usually haulted by lack of calories.
The overwhelming consensus is that 95% of the time it is a lack of calories that is the problem. You are claiming that a person can train to the point of where no amount of calories can prevent them from overtraining. Sure, this may be true, but do you see it as a regular occurance?
Has anyone for that matter? This is the point Vader made and pretty much sums up the question.
To the OP, read Bauer’s thread in the T-cell and get his take on overtraining.
Actually the OP was asking
Do you agree or disagree? that “There is no such thing as over training just under eating.”
I have stated my opinion: Disagree
Are you agreeing with this statement ajweins?
Do you think that there is no such thing as overtraining?
I agree with your disagreement, but am trying to emphasize the rarity that this occurs (I personally have never seen it). If you have, I would be interested in how much work they were doing and how much food they were consuming.
