Perhaps you are getting a good pump? Nothing really wrong with that.

Keep your workout sessions 45 minutes - 60 minutes in length and only once per day. I would say at max 4-5 times a week. This should prevent over training. Good day

i get that sometimes too

i also get it if i run a couple of miles too, little twiches in my leg

its never caused me any problems and i always thought the symptoms of overtraining were feeling tired, getting injuries frequently and not growing
i think you have nothing to worry about

No its is not a sign of over training.


Are you lifting too much or too often?
Numerous signs and symptoms of overtraining have been suggested. It should be noted that not all of these symptoms will be present, and that the presence of some of these symptoms does not automatically mean an individual is overtrained. The ultimate determination of overtraining is whether performance is impaired or plateaued. Listed below are some frequently cited signs of overtraining:
Performance

Decreased performance (strength, power, muscle endurance, cardiovascular endurance)
Decreased training tolerance and increased recovery requirements
Decreased motor coordination
Increased technical faults
Physiology

Altered resting heart rate (HR), blood pressure and respiration patterns
Decreased body fat and post-exercise body weight
Increased VO2, VE , and HR during submaximal work
Decreased lactate response
Increased basal metabolic rate
Chronic fatigue
Sleep and eating disorders
Menstrual disruptions
Headaches, gastrointestinal distress
Muscle soreness and damage
Joint aches and pains
Psychological

Depression and apathy
Decreased self-esteem
Decreased ability to concentrate
Decreased self-efficacy
Sensitive to stress
Immunological

Increased occurrence of illness
Decreased rate of healing
Impaired immune function (neutrophils, lymphocytes, mitogen responses, eosinophils)
Biochemical

Hypothalamic dysfunction
Increased serum cortisol and SHBG
Decreased serum total and free testosterone, testosterone/cortisol ratio
Decreased muscle glycogen
Decreased serum hemoglobin, iron, and ferritin
Negative N2 balance


If your worried about your arm, go see a doctor, but I don't think its anything to worry about.
