If I do a muscular endurance activity that trains type 1 fibers on day 1, then train type 2 fibers the next day is this a bad idea? (I would like to do a HIIT involving lots of burpees but tomorrow I lift upper body)
That's not how overtraining occurs and it's never 100% of a specific muscle fiber being trained. They're all being trained, but the predominance shifts depending on the stimulus.
I see. So even though today I would train more type 1 than type 2 I should still give a 48 hour rest until I bench press? Or should I just go for it?
I think you are diving too deep with the Fiber Type there

Current Workout Log= Chasing the Dream
10 sets of 10 burpees with a core exercise between. I'm well conditioned, wouldn't say a freak by any means but I can hold my own. So basically 100 push ups today then I plan on doing heavy chest and back exercises tomorrow. I am curious if all of the push ups could potentially affect my bench tomorrow?
Imo over training is the boogie man of weight training and real over training is Lactic acidosis. If your diet is right and calories are high enough you can hit the same muscle group multiple times a week and still grow.

Yea, what they said.
Perhaps we should create a sticky FAQ in this forum
"Read here BEFORE you even think to ask about over training"
^^yeah, what he said!
See what I did there!

Hey guys, what's going on?
CT Fletcher said there is no such thing as ...over-training..."it's still yo motha f'n set!"
You want to overtrain or you'll never gain size/strength/endurance. Under training and training are synonymous.
Well, I think the term is used a bit loosely in gyms but an actual OTed state was mentioned above and is one of a systemic nature, not just a group and or muscle training per se.
I think Siff went into this in Supertraining.
An actual OT state is not easy to bounce back from, or at least not a few deloads and you're fine. Chronically OTed effects the system in a breaking down way.
