    I need a good link. Where do you draw the line from an effective ammount of training, to going over the edge? Should my body tell me something?

    I think actual overtraining will take a period of months to recover from. I'll try and dig up some posts from Lyles board, I remember there being good stuff over there.

    Why do you think that you are overtraining?

    I have stange pains throughout my body. Its not like rotator cuff issues, but more like tendonitis in many places. I can put up 225 on the bench 5x, but can't break bolts loose on my car without withering in pain (I had to get a 108lb girl to break a bolt loose for me yesterday).

    I'm starting to think its just overtraining.

    tiredness and not making progress would be a start. 4 days a week training vs 7 days a week I feel a hell of a lot better and making better progress

    shoulder pain is usually from muscular imbalances, scar tissue, overactive muscles, and/or dysfunctional muscles

    Sounds like pretty normal recovery. Unless you're frequently tired, sore, irritable, not showing progress, etc. you're probably fine.
