    What I have found in this short space of time, is that there are many different opinions.

    Why? because most people base that upon what they can do.

    I would go with what works for you. Your body is the one that will tell you if you are overtraining. Hence you will get to a routine that you know works for you.

    I think it's difficult to "overtrain a muscle" as such. I think there's a difference between just doing more (possibly a lot more) than is optimal, and overtraining. You could do far too much triceps work and consequently make little or no progress on your triceps but that isn't the same as what is usually referred to as overtraining, which is a more systemic effect.

    Overtraining!!!
    Arggghh... does my head in. It's a buzz word that people have latched onto for some reason.
    It seems to get re-enforced all the time by people repeating it over and over again for the wrong reasons.

    You could train your tri's to the point of diminishing returns in a session... yeah that's simple to understand right?
    But as long as you're eating enough and resting enough it's not a huge issue.

    Everything is a balaning act between:
    Intesity
    Frequancy
    Volume

    Thing of it like balancing macro-nutriant ratios maybe.

    You can play to your strengths if you react well from intense exercise (very heavy etc) or frequant (people recover at differant rates) and volume (people respond differantly to quantities of reps or sets etc).

    Even decrease in size i hear too. If you're training to faulire, you should be giving yourself a minimum of 1 week in btween hitting the same muscle again. If you're not going to faulire, then potentially you can train that muscle more than once a week. DOMS is not an indicator of recovery, so when DOMS goes, a lot of newbies assume they are fully recovered and train again, and 'potentially' risk overtraing.

    Hope this helps mate.
