I think I'm right in assuming that everyone including me wants immediate results from lifting. Of course that never happens. I have tried all different types of training programs with varying intensity and varying frequency through the week. Along the way when I hit plateaus I constantly find myself wondering if I may be overtraining and that's why I'm not gaining quickly enough so I back off; all of these articles on the internet insist that overtraining will lead to lack of gains because you don't have sufficient rest.
The only time I have ever seen good results in the gym is when I workout with alot of intensity and high frequency. I'm not saying that I do chest multiple days in a row or anything, just go to the gym 5 days per week and have a nice intense workout.
My question to you guys is if you think overtraining has been overexaggerated? It seems to me like the more work you put in the more gains you will experience.
