  1. I work out 6 days a week for about 45 minutes very very hardcore. My question is, is 6 days a week ok ? I do develop muscle soreness but I push through it and always feel great. I've been hitting the gym now for about 2 months.

  2. Overtraining definitely not good it is working the same muscles to often with no rest making it harder to reach your full potential. Do not over train people. Overload is working beyond your own potential to increase strength, the difference is you will be rested enough to exceed your potential.

  3. Hey just wondering, i don't know if this is a obvious question or not but I'm 15 and was looking at the Max/Size, Max/Shred and Ultimate Arms program. Just wanted to see if this was also suitable for a 15 year old as I love working out and am desperate to make the most of it without overtraining. I want to be stronger and way more bigger as I play Australian Rules Football. Thanks heaps if you reply.

  4. jeff do u overtrain? and how much muscle groups shoud i work out a day and what is the maximum and minimum time of overtraining

  5. whats the difference between failure and progressive overload? What if you do one set of 40 pushups to failure then you try again later and you do 42 then you plateau. If you keep trying to do 43 then youre following the principle of progressive overload but youre just going to failure. so whats the difference

  6. I used to train 2 hours and 5 days a week but now I train 4 days a week and only 1 hour hope I didn't fuck up cause I was overtraining

  7. Muscle Aches are good? When i am training my chest on mondays, i have muscle ache at the chest til friday normally. But thats only the case if i am including cable crossovers.

  8. I won a genetic lottery. I was 13 years old and knocked a grown man out when I felt threatened. I don't think this will give me more muscles but my traps shoulders and lats are my easiest muscles to grow so maybe I had it I was just under eating.

  9. Hay please answer this one… I work out and don't gain much size at all I actually can't tell a viable difference but I can feel I am stronger and I lift more hit harder and exc exc. Why is this and what is it caused. I build large amount of strength but almost no size over long period of time

  11. I once talked with this guy and he said he worked out in the morning. Spent something like 3 hours in the gym. I kinda looked at him funny and was surprised. He smiled and said he did it all the time. He wasn't fat but he looked like crap, wasn't lean, had all kinds of joint issues, and looked far older than he was. He was also completely confident in that he was training the right way. That is what overtraining will get you. Enjoy.

  12. Hey Jeff i did the athleanx 1 workout. And i suffered the overtraining neurological and physiological, because of the intensity..and cutted out the Tuesday and Thursday workout from week3 due to that I play basketball and trained 4 times a week and had a game on Sunday. I admit my nutrition was far from perfect and sometimes did not get quality sleep. I suffered from overtraing around week 4. Do you think I can do the program with basketball practise while getting better sleep and improving on nutrition?

  13. So I'm just getting into weight lifting & calisthenics and have heard a lot on the subject. I understand that rest is key for muscle development/recovery, so I guess I see overtraining as people who work out as hard as they can 7 days a week. So my question, is there anything wrong with giving it everything you have as long as you can, Long as you get the adequate recovery time ?

  14. I HAVE A QUESTION! SORRY IF THIS IS ALOT!

    I workout and have a minute to two minutes intervals between sets and focus on upper body every third day of training with two days of rest. My question is I work two hours to complete the work out and don't want to be over training. I don't get tired the morning before my workout and do not believe I am over training because every set I work as hard as I can to failure and it has been progressing well so far. I make sure I get rest and eat the right nutrition and down protein shakes (34g) before and after workouts. I want to gain muscle and currently weigh 140 lbs. (I am a teenager btw). This is my workout…

    What I do is abdominal crunches 4(sets)X10 (reps). Then do decline 4×10. After I do my lats with wide grip pull ups 4×6 with body weight plus extra weight (150 lbs). Then I do kneeling dumbel rows for each arm on bench 4×6 (50 lbs). Then I work chest by doing bench press 4×6 (155 lbs). Then I do flys 4×6 with each dumbel 35 lbs. After I do biceps by standing and doing dumbel curls both at same time 4×6 (30 lbs). And then I do hammer curls 4×6. I alternate by doing standing and incline so I would be doing another 4×6 for curls and hammer curls. After I do tricep cable pull down 4×6 (60 lbs). And finish with with skull crushers 4×6 (30 lbs for each dumbel).

  15. Genetic lottery for the ones who could shave when they were 13? They are all bald and fat by the time they are 30 in my experience. I know what you mean about genetic lottery though ๐Ÿ™‚ but it isn't quite them.

  16. Yeah… I don't see how that dude confused overtraining with what he described. His definition of overtraining is a fundamental principal of muscle growth.

  17. Jeff Can you talk about the balance between cardio training, like running or elliptical and then weight training. Or just plain weight training.
