What is overtraining? I know this seems like a simple question, but I still need clarification. The problem is certain strength coaches don’t really believe it exhists, while others seem to put great emphasis on it while designing an exercise program.
Some say there are symptoms. Such as irritability, lack of desire, sleeplessness, lack of progress etc… But are those really physical effects or just “being sick of being in the gym all the time!”
Another question I have in the same field is if high volume bodybuilding training of the 1960s&70s was soo counterproductive, wouldnt bodybuilders of today be much stronger in comparisson? (And yes I know bodybuiders arent strength athletes!)( And please dont bring up Gregg Kovacs, he’s just a freak).
The reason for all these questions is because I just got some Tribex-500 and I want to design a kick ass routine to go along with it. So which route should I go Simmons/Hathfield or King/Poliquin. I have tremendous respect for all these men.
