I believe there is such as thing as overtraining. Back in my first 9 months of lifting I foolishly did a very high volume bodypart split taking every set to failure and frequently beyond failure. You can imagine the damage training this way for something such as chest on exercises such as bench press, incline press and dips for a total of 24 sets with no chemical advantages. Of course, everyone is different but this was way too much for me. This resulted in very sore muscles and damaged joints and extreme fatigue, despite getting adequate amounts of sleep and food. Unfortunately I was part of the 'more is better' mantra. I learned my lesson.
