So y'all have seen my "lose 15kg" thread that has become a "lose 8kg" thread. In it you'll notice this:
On Tuesday, yes, the day that I put that thread up, I did the kettlebell class and tore a muscle ever so slightly. Apparently my hip flexors are really tight, which is either the reason or a contributor to this particular injury. I DON'T WANT ADVICE ON A PLAN TO STRETCH AND GAIN FLEXIBILITY, as I already have a PT and a physio on the case. It's a small tear and will heal by next week, I'm not too concerned, other than the fact I am now off the mat for a few days, which brings me to my question.Quote:
I train a shitload and have a decent schedule for training. Monday to Saturday, I train at least an hour a night, most of the time 2 and sometimes 3. In order to let the BJJ information sink in, I am foregoing my usual MMA training on Tuesday and Thursday to do strength and conditioning with kettlebells. On these days I will run to and from the gym, as they are only 45 minute sessions. Work on my cardio.

The question that has been playing on me a bit is should I be training Gi BJJ only in preparation for the Gi BJJ Comp, foregoing Strength and Conditioning? I'm in two minds about this and I'll give you my thoughts:
1. TRAIN ONLY GI BJJ 5 OR 6 DAYS A WEEK- drill known techniques, learn new techniques, free- roll for Gi BJJ specific cardio, gain sensitivity in technique application.
2. TRAIN KBX (KETTLEBELLS) 2 DAYS (+1 cross over), OTHER DAYS JITS- Give time between classes to let new techniques sink in, get stronger.
1. Information overload.
2. Injury from performing new techniques not related to jits, not learning new techniques.
I am not upping my training, I train most days of the week normally. Keep that in consideration when your first thought is "you're doing too much too quickly". If you can support that I am doing too much, proof of your reasoning is required.
What would you do?
Please take in psychological, physiological and physical considerations when replying.
