    Overtraining On Steroids...?

    Hi all,

    Touching on a much discussed subject...yet i still find it being in such a grey area.

    CAN you overtrain on Steroids!? or do you take advantage and train every murscle group twice per week?

    There's guys in the gym that beleive overtraining is a myth, Who have no rest days, and yet are HUGE without showing anysigns of overtraining.... whats the truth?

    Re: Overtraining On Steroids...?

    im not on gear so cant talk from that point , but overtraining in my opinion exists , but revolves around life too , i was working a hektic job training 5 days a week plus a couple of them sessions had cardio . plus attempting boxing . an within a two weeks of this i was extremely fatigued , was sleeping like 14 hours a night am couldnt kick myself into gear an started suffering anxiety (sp) an stress. this lasted a good week an was eventually 3 weeks before i was training and eating again properly , now this was not obviusly all down to training but i feel it played a big part.

    Depends on lifestyle, diet and training.

    Gear helps you train long by increasing testosterone generally so you repair much faster.

    The people who are huge at my gym and seem to have no rest, work a few nights a week at night clubs and dont work during the day, so i'd imagine they have plenty of time to sleep and train.
    also depends on body type and training performance, personally i find if i do strength/hypertrophy training i could do it again within 3 days rest of that group. If i do endurance or definition with lots of fatigue training i can't do it again in a few days lol

    so what your saying is aslong as you eat enough calories to what you expend you cant overtrain?

    without trying to sound like a smartass ( trust me im not im well aware your a lot more knowledgable in this area than me)
    are you saying you could then train chest everyday an aslong as eat enough it wont overtrain??

    Re: Overtraining On Steroids...?

    LOL yes but you would not train for 8hrs a day nor would you train chest every day.....overtraining is about recovery and diet is one of the main factors to this........

    so for you and the others that say "what if you never sleep or train all day and all night" if you follow a normal training method ie once a day training rotating bodyparts in my opinion under eating is the main problem ie you don't over train your under eat

    on gear muscle will recover and grow at fast rate as long as you provide the body with required nutrition to do so. and this could lead people to over train because of quick recovery. just have to remember that tendons and joints connective tissues get under pressure because they don't grow as fast as muscle tissue.

    Of course if you follow a 'normal' training method ie once a day training rotating bodyparts, you are not overtraining and it is therefore not what the initial question is asking.
    I think what needs to be determined is exactly what constitutes 'overtraining'.
    Yes its completely unrealistic for anyone to train 8 hours per day etc etc but its quite possible to train at high intensity 2 hours per day, 7 days per week, no matter what your work schedule is. I do believe that no matter how much gear you take and how much food you consume that you will be severely overtrained. The CNS alone just could not cope.
    On that basis i do not believe the statement ' there is no such thing as overtraining, just undereating' holds up and yes you can indeed overtrain when using AAS.
