Yes, there is definitely such a thing as too much. I have a friend that was always working out and not getting the proper rest that his body needed; because of this, he ended up in the hospital with Rhabdomyolysis. This is where the protein in you muscles break down and pretty much fry your liver. So always have rest days so your body can recover.

Ok so what you need to eat to repair muscle is lots of protein and vitamin c so a good idea if you don't do this is have a whey protein shake everyday 1 or 2 is fine I use to have the same problem as you and that took care of it

I see an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine twice a year. His advice to me was take a day off once a week and, never go 2 days back to back, without a session. Unless, your sick.

Everyone has different levels of fitness so listen to your body :)
