    Not necessarily. If you can sustain it for several weeks consistently then maybe you need the volume. It is on the high side as you probably know.

    If you start overreaching after a couple of weeks or less then yes it is too high.

    Volume is an individual thing.

    You use however much delivers you the results you want.

    It doesn’t matter if what you are doing is a lot compared to others.

    It’s gonna vary from person to person.
    - Your mindset influences your outcome. It's time to take out phrases like "I can't" or "I don't have time" and replace them with phrases like "I will make the time" and "I will keep working at it until I find a way that works." Success starts with the right mindset and believing in yourself and your dreams.

    The only way you know if you’re doing too much is of quality of work degrades over time and you stagnate.

    You could reduce volume and see if you make better gains.

    But without trying it, it’s pretty tough for anyone to say yes/no.

    I’d personally say you could be venturing into junk volume territory but if you’re progressing and having fun who cares?

    That's right around where my volume is during the summer, when I tend to favor a bro split since I have enough time for longer workouts. So I would say that no, it's not too much volume as long as it's working for you. Obviously, if it's not working for you, it might be too high.
