Feeling Overtrained

Musclemania® Balkan Champion Blaz Hrastnik has been hitting the gym ever since winner last season. The 6'2", 220 lbs., Slovenian medical student says, "This week i started to feel overtrained after 50 sessions in the past month. So after yesterday's 250 kg squat record, my plan now is to take a few days off for my ligaments, joints and connecting tissue to recover. I will keep a moderate training tempo until my exam-and after that it's full power again. The weight stays about the same, i can see a new vein somewhere on my body every week." Blaz is training for the competition season in Europe and next season straight to MM Universe.
