look into something similar to rippetoe's starting strength.....google it no wonder you got burned out/overtrained....that's wayyyyyyyy too much workload.

I am willing to bet you are nowhere close to being "overtrained".

Just eat, sleep and program your training. You'll be fine. Go to Ground Up Strength and read some of the articles out there. Eric Troy and Joe Weir (that would be Kane) do a great job of putting thoughts to words.
