Overtraining? How much is to much?

I was sick for the past week and a half. Last Friday I started back working out. To wiped to even think about it before-cold/flu. But I did Fri and Saturday and wanted to Sun. but resisted. Worked out Mon and Tues. Started coughing a little more today. Still anxious to work out but am I killing myself? I resisted Monday because of the feeling in my shoulder muscles and legs. Same time I did personel best Monday with low-one step-wted 32KG KB pistol. Numbers where singles but never did it before.

Any Advice? been working out for 4 years with KBells couple years before that doing BS bodybuilding nonsense before I found that path of the light.

Do you cycle down regularly?

Let's take the four-week cycles that Pavel uses as an example, where the fourth week typically has half the volume and/or lowered intensity. This is modeled after a ? Chinese or ? Russian weightlifting team training cycle. Perhaps your next week could be such a week. Of course, only you know what constitutes being "on the nerve" on any given day.

BTW, I wish that I could come out of an illness and do a 32kg KB pistol! :]

Do you cycle down regularly? Badly

I am really bad at the scientific approach to cycling down. I try to listen to my body as opposed to my demons-lazyness being one. I try to cycle down by doing enjoyable but low intensity exercises like overhead squats with one 32kg bell and snatches with the 24 kg bell with plenty of Lupitan sit ups, back rolls and lower back looseners. And some CQB drills.
I liked how you said "on the nerve" I would like to hear a further explantion of what you mean. I think I know but would like to know more.

By the way the pistol wasn't exactly crisp but what the hell I did it.

On the nerve...

...simply means that you and on the edge of failure. Acceptable once in a cycle but done regularly, will decrease strength levels.

What are CQB drills?
