    i now feel fine!

    i had a big arguement with my coach who claimed i was being a pussy, he's now thinking of dropping me. :|

    gonna go for a light jog, dont think ill do weights today.

    I'm 19 now, have been doing weights for a few years and can now shift some fairy heavy weights (105kg) bench for 6 reps. At first i was going all out repeating the same exercises everyday and basically i was feeling sore and feel i'll rather fast. I'm sure you aren't doing this but anyway just making a point.
    Also it is paramount that you take a good week off every 3-4 months in my opinion, the body is very adaptive this is true but it is not designed to be a machine. I'm not sure how old you are but im guessing your around my sort of age and recently their have been many articals stating that people of our age do not need the same level of stimulation to cause muscle grow as our older counterparts, and training at the same level as a mid twentys male is not actually as beneficially as training with a less intense routine.
    What sort of supplements do you take? because i genuinely feel that there are some good supps out that chondroitin ive found to be good and i also take flaxseed oil. Keeps me feelin gmore supple and alert during the day.

    Umm, nope, i dont have a **** routine, nor diet.

    Supplements, whey, flaxseed and ribose.

    Supplements, or lack of, have nothing to do with me over-training, being that i've trained most days for over a year.

    As i said mate i never even suggested you had a **** routine or diet. I was merely trying to get a better perspective on what your routine/diet etc was like. Nevermind though.

    Having a week off isnt really necessary for physiological adapation, although it can be quite beneficial mentally.

    I think research has shown that a programme should be structured so that 3 weeks of progressive overload should be followed by a week of recovery exercise.
