Intensity of workout

If you have 3 full body workout per week. 1st workout you can give 100% 2nd workout you can only 70% of 1st workout 3rd workout maybe 50% Will you consider this as over training? Or it should be this way for intensity because you cannot perform at same level if you go for heavy workout?
