depends on a lot of things including the type of workout, musclegroups involved and intensity of training. If you are talking about 10-14 workouts per week, most likely it would be overtraining.

Also diet and rest patterns will have an impact in overtraining or not.

Also, for a natural trainer it would lead to overtraining.

Not neccesarily.
I'm training twice a day 6 days a week:

mon lower body (AM), upper body(PM)
tue rowing (AM), cycling(PM)
wed lower body (AM), upper body(PM)
thu rowing (AM), cycling(PM)
fri lower body (AM), upper body(PM)
sat rowing (AM), cycling(PM)

and am not overtraining.
More strength type training though than bodybuilding (hypertrophy) type training (meaning: heavy weights, low reps, low volume not to failure)

For how long have you been doing that?

Are you a drug-free athlete? And kind of sport are you in?

I like this split. Don't know how it would work for us older guys tho. lifting heavy and not going to failure works well for me. Doing too many sets to failure makes it awful hard to recover.

Do you feel like the cardio helps you recover from the weight training?

Yes I do. With the cardio strength training seems to go smoother.
And the other way around as well.
