What is Overtraining?
The biggest mistake bodybuilders make is overtraining. Overtraining is when you do more in the gym than the body has the ability to recover from outside of the gym. It is outside of the gym that the body grows. Alot of times bodybuilders fall into the fallacy that in order to grow 6 sets is better than 3 sets.
Your goal from the time that u come into the gym until the time you leave is to tire the muscle as much as possible in the shortest period of time possible.
When a person is overtrained they are chronically sore. Muscles always hurt and the joints hurt too. You are more prone to colds as your immunity is supressed. You also are getting weaker and not getting any stronger.
If you do too much in the gym then it sets you up for failure.
