    Workout Length, Intensity


    I'm curious, how many total exercises/ sets do you generally do for chest?

    How many sets would you consider to be overtraining?

    6-9 working sets with about 4 warm-up/feel sets. My rep range is 6-12 and I do 3-4 exercises. Overtraining chest generally doesn't really happen, but the delts and triceps take a pounding from chest training, so those are more likely to become overtaxed. I am not saying that you cannot overtrain chest, but it is much easier and more likely that the secondary movers will suffer first.
