    Any exercise/workout do incorrectly can give problems.

    In general overtraing is a overestimate for no-professional athletes, one can reach an overreaching stage, (i.e. roughly speaking a plateau, where the performance can non be increased).

    Anyway, on the basis of your description seem that your Load Carries workout is based on the Farmer Walk. The main focuses of such an exercise are the core and the hand grip.

    Considering a cycle of 4 days, your legs are trained for 7-8 times in a month using a methodology focused on power.
    Is a big number of sprint workout in a month? May be, the point is not if the "number" of a workout is big or small but whether it's adequate or not for you. (Notably, for me, adequate means that it's correct to achieve the goals on the basis of quality and quantity of stimuli.)

    Anyway, the linear progression is not possible forever, but have time limits based on the specific level (more one is in "beginner" level more can have gains with a linear progression).
    How to avoid problem and how to maximize the workout gains? The solution is easy: periodization. There are different way to apply periodization in a training agenda.
    The simple and more effective at beginner level is that a cycle of training lasts 4-5 weeks and at the end there is a deload week, where volume and/or intensity in the workouts are cut off.


    Notably, beginer does not meas untrained.

    So I looked at the Darebee sprint options list (https://darebee.com/running/sprints-guide.html), but it doesn't say how often to do sprints per week or what muscle groups to rest if you want to work out on other days.

    Preventing overtraining

    So I have been doing some reading and I have found that a "sprint workout" such as the who 6 sets of 30 second sprinting with 2 minutes walking between as well as warm up/cool down, or such, can cause negative results if done incorrectly. Some people say you can do sprints 3 times a week, some say to only do them once a week and the information is all over the place (I am assume due to different goals, purposes, etc). My main focus now is weight loss (without losing strength I have gained over the last year), then body sculpting (Of which I am told sprints help with a lot especially with added ab exercises and a good meal plan). I have been doing Loaded carries (With a ab workout beforehand) and am up to walking 30 yards with 50KGs in each hand for 6 sets (with 3 minute rests between), but I only do these loaded carries once every 4 days, with "Push Up Day" between (Push Up Day, Rest day, Loaded Carries Day, Rest Day, repeat). Would it be okay to "Sprints, Rest Day, Push Up Day, Loaded Carries" and repeat? Thank you for any and all input. I am also going to read more into the Darebee Abs Meal Plan.
