    To a degree, but this is not always true. If overtraining is not real, then you can lift for six hours every day, all out, heavy weight, etc, for weeks/months and not overtrain? No amount of prioritizing recovery will make up for this. Of course, it’s a silly extreme example, but it shows that overtraining is real, just perhaps not as common as some people think.

    we can test this easily.

    Squat 3x5 twice a day every day and let me know your results in a month.

    Compare it to the guy who squats a regimented training program of 2-3 x's per month. lets compare end results.

    Clearly a logical training protocol would yield better results than trying to murder my legs twice a day for a month. And let’s not forget that I’d still have to work the rest of my body in addition to twice a day leg workouts. There’s no need to “test” this anymore than there is a need to test if eating tide pods is bad for your health.

  4. Overtraining is real.
    Deload in an autoregulating program is key

    Do you know a better way to cleanse a dirty mouth? Or to clean the gene pool, for that matter?

    Is that what they mean when they say we should "eat clean?" #DarwinAwards

  7. So. Arms every day. Got it.

  8. Sure you can over train. Here's a simple way to do it:

    Deadlift for a set of 5, as much weight as you can handle, 5RM max
    Deadlift for a set of 5, 95% of 5RM max
    Deadlift for a set of 5, 90% of 5RM max
    Deadlift for a set of 5, 85% of 5RM max
    Deadlift for a set of 5, 80% of 5RM max
    Deadlift for a set of 5, 75% of 5RM max
    Deadlift for a set of 5, 70% of 5RM max
    Deadlift for a set of 5, 65% of 5RM max

    Do this workout every day until over trained. It shouldn't take long.
