Hi everybody im a new member here; the forum looks great! lots of great information but i couldnt really find exactly what i was looking for so im posting this question. I've been working out now for strength training and bulking for about 2 and a half years, and iv progressively seen results that i am happy with. ( i trained every second day so roughly 3-4 times a week). about 5 months ago i decided to increase the intensity of my training schedule, and split training for different muscle groups over different days. my training schedule is as follows: Day 1: Back and Biceps: Wide grip chin ups with 10kg added weight (3 sets of 8) Close grip chin ups with 10 kg added weight (3 sets of 8) Bent over wide grip barbell row; 62.5kg (3 sets of 8) One-arm dumbell bent over row; 22.5kg (3 sets of 8) E-Z bar barbell curls; 32.5kg (3sets of 8) wide grip barbell curls; 30kg (3 sets of 8) preacher curl; 35kg (3 sets of 8) hammer curls; 12.5kg (3 sets of 8) Day 2: chest and triceps: Bench press; 90kg (3sets of 8) incline hammer strength press; (3sets of 8) dumbell fly cross-over; (3sets of 8) incline bench (3sets of 8) triceps cable pulldown (3sets of 8) skull crushers with E-Z bar (3sets of 8) narrow-grip bench press for triceps (3sets of 8) dips with 10kg assisted weight (3sets of 8) Day 3: shoulders, upper trapezius and abs shoulder press (3sets of 8) seated dumbell lateral raise 12.5kg each arm(3sets of 8) bent over dumbell lateral raise for posterior deltoid (3sets of 8) standing dumbell lateral raise (3sets of 8) bent over dumbell lateral raise (3sets of 8) upright row; 35kg (3sets of 8) shrugs; 37.5kg each arm (3sets of 8) various sit ups Day 4: legs smith machine squats (3sets of 8) seated leg press (3sets of 8) seated quadriceps extensions (3sets of 8) seated hamstring curls (3sets of 8) calf raises (3sets of 8) I eat fairly consistently and healthily, and i take an adequate protein supplement, but I feel that my body is no longer responding to the workouts! Its almost as though I'm getting smaller in bulk size, with the greater intensity work out!?! I fear that i may be overtrainning; could somebody please advise? I've taken about 5 days off training to see if this helps, but i'd really like to get back into it again! I'm 22 years old, weigh 67kg, and I'd really like to pack on about 5kg's... but i've hit a wall!! help!! cheers in advance for any advice!
