Friday was my chest + abs day, today is Sunday and my chest is still aching. Did high intensity for about an hour. Is this normal? How do I tell if I'm overtraining? ( I take 2 rest days after each workout so I'm hitting it again tmr) sorry for the broken sentences, I suck at typing off my HTC.

For how long you been doing the current workout routine ?
I don't know if you just began training or not. But at the beginning it actually takes time for the muscles to get used for the workouts. Usually over training is a different concept referring to a more intensive training when you burn out.

You'll know. You'll get tired, want to take naps, feel a bit bummed etc. You'll figure out how often you need to rest and such.

I am over trained right now. I need a week off but I'm holding out until my Lasik.

Hey,

I think its impossible you're over training if you have 2 rest days between workouts. Although in the first 2 - 3 weeks of working out - or sudden dramatic increase in workout intensity - your muscles will probably scream for days afterward...mine did. ( I ignored it, as long as they'd had a days rest I kept with my workout schedule)

I just read Weider's Ultimate bodybuilding book...here are the symptoms of over training (from the notes I took)

Body will not improve if over trained.
Lack of enthusiasm for working out
Chronic fatigue/low energy
Irritability
Persistent sore muscles/joints
Deteriorating motor function
Insomnia
Loss of appetite
Can't concentrate
Morning pulse more than 4 bpm above normal.
