here comes the hotstepper!


« on: August 25, 2006, 06:30:37 AM »

this last week recovering has taken days instead of a single day after a workout.  I'm getting the same amount of sleep and eating right...

the only thing that's changed is that i've added a single set to failure at the end of every workout per muscle group. Could it honestly make THAT big of a difference?  Huh

or could that one extra set throw me into overtraining?  Huh

Yes.

And yes.

Why change your training when you were doing so good?

Suggestion: Take 5 days completely off training, then get back on your old training protocol.
