21 Year old training methods/possible to overtrain?
Im farily knowledable on how to workout and train etc....
My only question is that because I am younger and my test levels are prob higher being 21 is it possible to work a body part more then 2 times per week?
I find that my musceles recover very quick , some more then others but still some days when I workout my chest I can do 4x6 sets of dips in the mourning and then at night I can do the same thing without any lag from the mourning workout.....Same thing goes for other workouts like bench press or ab workouts...It seems I could almost work them out twice a day or even back to back days if I wanted.....
I dont feel like im overtraining at all and I can do them without any noticable difference of working out earlier in the day or anything......Should I continue this or am I still "overtraining" ? I know when test levels are high when taking anabolics and people train like crazy so not sure if this type of workingout is acceptable considering my age and test.. levels'
based on your question, I think you need to re-think the statement "I am fairly knowledegable on training."
You can't quantify overtraining in one session or one week. Try doing what you are doing for a significant amount of time and you will reach a state of overtraining.
Moreover, doing what you are doing is a great way to overwork the tissue and lead to injury. We grow when we are OUTSIDE of the gym, resting; not in it! In the gym we tear down tissue. We adapt when we rest and that is when we improve. If you keep tearing down tissue, eventually it will catch up with you.
i use to do the same thing... just try and do chest twice a week but when you do add more weight and train harder i guess... sounds like your body is use to the same workouts... try switching up you exercises
