Awww how cool, you're so hardcore that you don't think that there is such a thing..... Haha, jk, of course there's such a thing... If you are a weight lifter and you lift too much you're muscles won't get a chance to actually grow, or you could burn yourself out (depends on the person). Or obviously you could injure yourself by doing too intense or too much of a workout.

"Overtraining occurs when the volume and intensity of an individual's exercise exceeds their recovery capacity. They cease making progress, and can even begin to lose strength and fitness. Overtraining is a common problem in weight training, but it can also be experienced by runners and other athletes."

You may also feel something different mentally when overtraining. You tend to not have the same "zest" or drive that you once previoulsy had and you no longer enjoy the workload.

Stolen straight from Wikipedia:

Persistent muscle soreness
Persistent fatigue
Elevated resting heart rate
Increased susceptibility to infections
Increased incidence of injuries
Irritability
Depression
Loss of motivation
Insomnia
Decreased appetite
Weight loss

And I heard for girls they'll get an irregular menstrual cycle but chances are that doesn't apply to you.

Every morning first thing when you wake up, take your pulse before you get out of bed. If you are training properly, it should go down over time, e.g. week by week. If you are overtraining or undertraining, it will go up. If you are not working hard enough it will stay the same. If your pulse goes up, you know whether you are working too hard or not working hard enough. Yes, there is overtraining, but most people are lazy and undertrain, except at the dinner table.

some people don't believe overtraining exists. Seen guys work till they throw up and barf. Pushing it to the limits

Basically overtraining is when your body cant recover fast enough and leads to lower performance.
