Can this be overtraining
Maby is more suited for the workout forum but this gets more traffic.
My health right now is rapidly deteriating. In the last 4 weeks I have
been through 3 colds(acctualy I never got rid if it, I have been sic constantly since 12th jaunary but just sligthely sic).
1 stomach flue
1 food poisoning
got my first stomach katarr ever in my life
Very sore joints and muscle tie ins
Sleepy all the time
sexdrive is gone(even though Im on test)
Hell even my little guy isnt working properly. Im not flat out impotent, but he isnt always as sharp and happy as he usualy is...I can go soft while having sex god **** it.
Motivation GONE, I just want to lie down and stair into the celling. Its not realy the usual depression either, I just dont care.
I am gaining strenght and looks like I am gaining muscle to while dropping fat. But I am doing a INSANE workout routine. Its only because I promised a guy to coach me for a period and to do what he says and he has me doing anything betwen 30-50 sets of each muscle and workouts is sometimes above 2 hours and then cardio for half and hour after that and 1,5 hour walks every morning. We also workout 5 days a week minimum.
I knew **** well that the workout routine would overtrain me to hell and back but how can It impact my health before my strenght and size suffers Dont call me stupid for following the routine, or well it is stupid I know that myself lol, it was just plain morbid curiosity that made me do it since I realy am a low volume guy when not doing westside.
Anyway the "symptoms" I listed are they comon for overtraining?

Sounds like OT to me.
I'd take a week off, maybe two, to recover, see how things are then.

completely off or just go into the gym and do light stuff? I have a competition in may so cant take total time off

just keep up the cardio without weight training..
remember weight training we want to make muscle size increase.. or harden..
so 2 weeks off.. might be exactly what you need. to bust through..The answer to your every question

Training for a competition, eh? In that case, I dunno . . . someone who's been through that mill can probably give you experienced advice.
Otherwise, if it was just a result of the usual training & workouts, ya, I'd just take a week or two off.

It just feels like I will break my promise to my coach. But health is the most important thing right now.

I hope he wont be grumpy about it. But I cant continue like he does no way in hell. Honestly I cant understand how his body has been able to cope with it for the years he has been workingout. But then again he has pains everywhere. Ohh well if it works for him then who am I to put it down. hes big and always cut so he mus have the genetics to handle it considering he juiced very moderatly to.
Now I atleast know it doesnt work for me.

Do yourself a favor and get the hell away from this "coach". I would think you'd know better than this after a few years on ar! If i promised someone i'd let them help me, then they started stabbing me in the stomach saying it was help, I'd break off their arm and break my "promise".

Know better... Yeah I sure do. I just give everything a try before I dismiss it completely. I am acctualy miraculously gaining strenght and muscle, but on the expense of my mental and physical health. So it isnt worth it to me, but maby to him.
Now I have tried everything, HIT, DC, WSB, mega volume ect and I have to say what works best is wsb and dc and my bb routine based on wsb layout. I hope he is open minded enough to try my training methods for a while now when I have tried his.

You know that workout is nuts and you also know what it's doing to you. Screw his feelings, this guy is tanking your health. If he complains do as BDTR would do and rip his arm off! Now don't start analyzing whether or not that is possible

Id call him a farfanoogan and bitch slap him across the gym Sounds like over training

Def OT, tell the "coach" to go f@k himself, weight training and then cardio?!?!? 2 hour workouts?!?!? 30-50 sets?!?!? WTF!?!?? He obviously doesn't know what he is doing!
Take a few days off and regroup bro!!!
