    There are many factors in overtraining:

    If you are not motivated to go to the gym
    If your lifts are declining and not increasing
    If you are losing your hunger
    If you pull or tear a muscle
    IF you are always tired
    If you are losing weight
    THese are just a few factors involved in overtraining...

    LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!!!

    I am beginnig to get the signs of under training. Too many weekends at the beach.....

    I generally can just tell that I need a day off. You walk in and you feel like you just don't have your A game with you, best thing to do is to take that day off and come back feeling well rested the next day. After a while you recognize that your body gives you signals that it needs some time with nothing to do.

    gotta agree with scottp999, there are days when you just go to the gym and no matter how motivated you are just can't lift shit. the trouble is actually taking time off, i think its the hardest thing in the world to stop myself lifting and take a week off. even though i know i need to take a break it still kills me to miss gym time and i feel like i'm gonna shrink if i miss a week. but you gotta do it bro, if your eating well, lifting hard and things aren't improving, then maybe its' time to take a little break.

    I have always read that you can't really undertrain...just undereat. If you eat enough then you should be just fine...

    imho-good luck

    I agree...

    FOOD is key. I can tell if I have not eaten enough throughout the day. I am very unmotivated at the gym. I know I need to keep eating in order to have the best workouts possible.

    Try changing your diet.

    I also agree that no matter what you do, you are going to have an off day.

    When I was working out 6 days a week it wasnt that bad until ive been doing it for a while... Experienced sleeplessness because i was sore and decreased energy in the gym. Switched to an every other day split thanks to my AR bros and things are 18938938938x better and im growing more.

    A way to tell if you're overtraining is by your heart-rate. If you're working out and want to check it out, monitor your heart-rate and if it increases by 10bpm from what's average for you (it's a bitch to keep track off, but it works) you're overtraining.
