Overtraining or Overly worried friend?
I have a friend who majors in exercise science and he said that I might be overtraining. I am neither an exercise science major nor someone with medical knowledge, so I wanted some opinions from bullies whether I am overtraining or I just have an overly concerned friend.
Below is my weekly work out during the semester.
My daily morning routine: 1 hour
-5min: 4.5mph warm up
-4 x (1min: 10 mph sprint + 4min: 6mph jog)
-5min: 3.5mph cool down
30min rowing on the ergometer
-I try keep 1.2 km/h
My afternoon routine:
Mon: 2hr BJJ w/Gi
Tues: 2hr in the mma gym (mostly Taekkyon training)
-15min stretching + warm up
-5 x (20 jump squat + 20 taekkyon squat)
-Drill a selection of 5 Taekyon kicks
-5 x (12 man makers + 12 boxer's push up)
-If I am lucky, few sparring sessions. If not more kicking.
-50 crunches + 50 judo push ups
Wed: 2hr Aikido, then 2hr BJJ w/no gi
Thurs: 2hr in the mma gym (mostly Taekkyon training)
-same as above
Fri: 2hr Judo
Sat: 2hr Judo
I also use electrical heat patch on my body to relieve any muscle soreness before I go to bed. I feel some muscle soreness after every work-out sessions (especially quads) but other than that I feel healthy. So am I overtraining?
PS: I made up my MMA gym routine by mixing conditioning I learned from Taekkyon and Judo, but I would appreciate any comments or suggestions on how to improve it.
