I've gone weeks at a time doing 4 hours or more in the gym on consecutive days and the more I did it the better I feel but if I go too long without excercising I start to feel shitty.

Right, so we have two people telling stories with no concrete proof, and the first thing that comes to your mind is that they shattered a myth, not perpetuated it.
Neither of you have any evidence besides "I heard" and "It came to me in a dream."
Post some exerpt from a historical book or even a link to a website confirming this.

Even proffessiopnal fighters don't train for 6.5 hours per day.
They run and do some fitness drills in the morning. Then go to training for about 2.5 hrs in the evening. All up they train about 3-4 hrs per day. And thats only about a few months leading up to a fight. In between fight events. They are in gym 3 nights per week just to keep themselves in decent shape.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker.

Did you copy and paste that from here? Or Sherdog?

Pro fighters only train 3 times a week? You've got to be kidding me.
I know "hobbyists" who train more than that + do weight lifting and other stuff.
Then again, those hobbyists don't use Xyence...
Maybe that's the secret?

9 hours a day and such? It reminds me of the kung foo guys that sit in horse stance for ten years straight and other stories of greatness. Tall tales.
At least it sounds like it.

shut up hannibal, guy i know trains at least 4 hours a day even if he doesnt know when his next fight is. he also runs his own company which is a pretty full time job. with time management that sort of thing is possible (helps if you are incredibly dedicated as well)
overtraining isnt a myth though and whoever was spouting **** about guys lifting weights for 8 hours a day needs to get better resources than hercules: the animated series

[QUOTE=kracker]I'm not 100% sure this is true but I've also heard that old time Greek weightlifters trained hardcore weightlifting with very short rests between sets 8 hours every day of week, 6 on Saturday and only a measly 2 hours on Sunday. If the stories are true, they were stronger than any chrome and fern dweller of today so I don't beleive overtraining is possible UNLESS your and idiot who doesnt know what the **** hes doing then you can overtrain (because you hurt your back and knees with improper form) but if you know what your doing than I think you would be fine.
You are clearly a fucking idiot. The end.
