    over training/recovery

    I like to workout everyday I go chest Tris, back bis, shoulders traps legs repeat with no days off for the last 3 months or so. Is that over doing it?

    short answer: yes

    I made my best gains when I started to eat more and cut down to 4 days of training a week.

    People can overtrain for months and make some progress, but it will eventually catch up. You know you are overtraining when you arent making any progress and joint health becomes an issue. More often than not, injuries occur from overtraining moreso than bad form.

    It is better to lift for tomorrow than just today

    I upped my bench to 235 at 3 reps as well. On the 3rd I thought my spotter helped me so I racked it but he said he didn't lift it at all.

    One thing ive learned is I never count a rep if he touched it at all, even if he claims he didnt help at all.

    99% of the time they did help

    I honestly don't get why people put their hands underneath the bar or touch the bar at all. It bugs the hell out of me

    I like when people keep their hands on the bar but don't help me unless I really need it

    Trust me, if they are touching the bar they are helping you.

    It is a terrible way to gauge progress since you dont really know if you got a PR or not

    If their touching it without pulling up at all then they are not helping you physically. i think it helps me mentally, knowing that they are right there in case I fail

    and I haven't done a PR on bench in over a year

    Ive had tons of spotters over the years, I can tell you just about every time they touched the bar they pulled some weight up. Of course they object they didnt help at all, "it was all you bro".

    A good spotter does not touch the bar unless it is going south or not moving up. Its not as if you miss a rep, you are going to crush yourself.
