    Can an Endomorph OVERTRAIN?


    i think people who are primarily endomorphic ...are immunue to over training

    they only why an endormorph can get shredded is to train hard 6 days a week...2 adays if possible.

    Endormophs are efficient ...taking rest days and doing easy wont shred u

    u gotta go so hard... very hard

    At some point training would interfere with nutrition.

    Overtraining is a concept that's been totally blown out of proportion. That being said, I don't believe anyone is immune to it, but rather it's very hard for anyone to truly overtrain. It usually happens with hardcore athletes/olympic lifters training 30+ hours/week.

    It's an interesting question. Thibadeau wrote an interesting article on this a few weeks back. While the amount of physical work that one can theoretically perform is huge; recovery is crucial. If you're stressed out, getting little/poor sleep, your body might be under-recovering from your training which will lead to something you would call overtraining.

    Yeah, that's mainly what I was referring to. Nice elaboration.

    Lets say someone trained 4 hours a day once in the morning once in the afternoon and once at night he focused the work on one major area a day and would leave 48 hours before focusing work on that one muscle again but saying this it might be used within 24 hours as a secondary muscle. He got 8 hours of sleep and diet was on par.

    The other guy trains 1 hour 3 times a week he also got 8 hours and had a spot on diet.

    Who would end up getting having the most gains?

    You'd have to eat a lot to fuel that kind of rigorous schedule, but Thibadeau would make a case for lifter #1 getting more gains, I believe.
