    For the past month and a half I have been working out twice a day on fridays.

    Around midday I do:
    Squats 3x8
    Box Squat 1x20
    Bench Press 5x5
    Deadlift 5x5

    About 6hrs later I go and do.
    Calf Thinger 3x20
    weighted wide grip chins 3x10
    DB Press 5x5
    and then finish w/2 or 3 sets of tate presses or curls :)hsugh:)

    It hasn't been a problem, I only feel it on Sundays. I get 5k+ calories (1 shake after each workout, rest is whole foods). And I'll get about 10hrs of sleep tonight.

    Too much for my CNS or no? Like I said I only "hurt" (just slightly sore) on Sundays.

    the way i see it (and i know il be disputed on this) everyone is different and you need to find what works for you, last summer before i knew what i was doing, id work out 3 times a day an hour each, 2 times lifting and 1 hour of cardio (and i ate hardly anything, what i did eat was protein and well below maintenance cals). that was definitely what would be on this board or anywhere considered over training, but i gained significant muscle strength durring this time as well as i lost 40 lbs of mostly fat. i wouldnt be as strict as i was but it all has to do w/ your metabolism and your body's predisposition to make gains, and of course what you eat. id personally suggest taking a month or so eating where you think your maintenace cals are and see if you gain or lose weight, then tweak your food as needed. im no expert but i would venture to say thats a little excessive for one day. il let christophers feild that one.
