comment Taking a break from weightlifting - how often?
I agree that taking a short break isn't going to impact your strength/performance - HOWEVER you need to correct your stress/motivation levels, otherwise you may find yourself eventually taking a very long break. Find a sport, hobby, etc. that combines exercise (martial arts, volleyball, tennis) that will re-motivate you

comment Why is it beneficial for powerlifters and heavy weight olympic lifters to not have low body fat?
I'll have to get back to you with the reference, but thinking through it, if the person remains at the same bf% (say 25% which is a lot) and gains 10lbs - 7.5lbs is non-fat/lean body mass - somewhere half being muscle to support the additional size.

comment Can you overtrain?
So, are you attributing the people that are injured to over training? or to incorrect training for them? I think the interesting point is the 'garbage man' theory - where people are working out heavy every day as part of their jobs and not injured due to it...

comment I need an effective excercise for wings/chest
@Greg - I agree, I switch from chin up to pull up to neutral position - to keep things interesting and to focus on different muscles.

comment Day off from training…how to mentally relax
I like the list of warning signs - some of them I fall into (working out alone, working out injured/sick) - and I know you're right about where the stress is coming from...but, the the day off from exercising seems to be adding to it
