overwork?

Okay I have a question...when people say you're overworking your muscle and the muscle will not grow, what is that mean? I know resting is the key to grow muscles but what makes the muscle not to grow? Please if anyone could answer these A.S.A.P. I need to know before I leave the office... thanks!!!

    quote:

    When you are lifting heavy weights your muscle fibers tear and then while you are resting through proper nutrition and sleep they get bigger and stronger (hypertrophy). If you overtrain, your muscle fibers tear and your body does not have enough time to heal the muscles before you go back into the gym and tear the fibers again. This is overtraining. If you overtrain your muscles will not grow in size or strength and can actually get weaker or smaller.



    i searched 'How do you overtrain muscles?' in google for that.

    hope it helps,

    1rm = 1 rep max = the maximum weight you can lift for a single rep.
