I was recently climbing for a good 4 hours, and afterwards I did weighted pullups (Enough weight to hit my 2RM). I did 6 sets of that, then i did the same with some intense pushup variations, and lots of functional/assistive training.

I noticed that two days later, instead of feeling stronger as usual, I felt MUCH weaker, especially in my shoulders.

This leads me to my question; do the super-compensation phases arrive later if I train harder? And is this an indicator that the training was too much?
