Overtrain on steroids


JOHNNIE MORTON
Caught: 6/13/07 , following his 38-second knockout loss against Bernard Ackah at Dynamite!! USA .
Tested positive for: Unspecified anabolic steroids. Morton’s pre-fight urine test came back as positive for a very elevated T/E (testosterone) ratio — , when the average for an athlete is 6.
Punishment: $2,500 fine and an indefinite suspension from the California State Athletic Commission. Morton’s $100,000 purse was also withheld after he refused to take a post-fight drug test. He hasn’t competed since.

So how do you know if you are overtraining. Well we have the symptoms above but here are some rules of thumb. If you are lifting weights more than 10 hours a week, you are most likely overtraining. If you are lifting weights more than 6 hours a week, you might be overtraining. To find out if you are, try cutting your weekly workout time in half for two months and compare the gains, if you do make more gains with less working out then you were overtraining. The easiest way is to use a standard workout plan rather than inventing your own, the free  custom workout plan  generator on my website will help make an optimal workout plan for your specific goals.

so i just done mondays workout, i thought it wud be the hardest thing ever, but tbh, it wasnt too bad, these programmes of professional bodybuilders are CAREFULLY created to hit different muscles groups, even different parts of a particular muscle, hence why you shouldnt end up overtraining if you do this workout like some people may think. i done mondays workout, after being exhausted from doin my back i was suprised i was able to do biceps quite easily, then after that i thought i had nothing left, hit the shoulders, and i could go full throttle.

Great, great article. I’ve got a few questions, however. I’ve been lifting now for about 5 years, and really only a month or so have been SMART training (diet in check by tracking, progressive overloading in the 4-6 rep range, essentially following BLS) and have made substantial progress on cutting. Does this mean I’m technically a beginner by these terms, being that I’ve trained for years but only recently started becoming fully educated? Should I be cutting first? My plan was (starting at ~15% BF) to get down to about 8 or 9 (I am roughly 11-12% now). Should I be cutting that low, or bulk earlier to cash in on “genetic potential”?
Thanks
Matt
