    You have to consider :
    1) Training
    2) Eating
    3) Recovery
    4) Supps if needed.

    You don't grow in the lifting room, you grow while you recover so get some days off. 3-4 days of lifting a week is usually enough.

    3 dinners = less than 2k unless you're eating double cheeseburgers.

    For me, it would be bad. Definite overtraining.

    as long as you aren't overtraining that's fine, there's no set number of days

    if you notice:

    a)constantly feel tired
    b)don't feel recovered
    c)decrease in strength (or even stagnant)
    d)lack of desire to lift

    then you might be overtraining and therefore in a burnout stage
