High Volume + Weight Training = A Bad Romance

Excessive volume is the common enemy of lifters. It’s been mine since I was 12! I got hooked on weight training when my parents bought me a weight set. I’d lift every morning before school. Then I’d use the school’s gym during lunch and do a session after school.

My Olympic lifting days were just as bad. I’d train twice a day, 5-6 days a week. Heck, I’ve even done 100 sets of bench press in one workout!

Was it worth it? Hard to say when you’re a kid and can recover quickly. I thought I was doing fine. I was convinced that the more I did, the more I progressed.

Every lifter goes through this “more is better” phase, and it’s actually working against you. Here’s why and how to manage volume for better gains.
