    Help With Training Schedule!

    Hey guys, I'm pretty new to the site and I view a lot of the forums, but I need help. I'm a tenth grader in high school and I just started taking MMA. I wanted to know how many days a week you think I should train. Here's the class info, and I am leaning to work more towards my grappling than my striking right now.
    Monday, Wednesday, and Friday: Muay Thai
    Tuesday and Thursday: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
    Saturday: No Gi Submission Wrestling
    Sunday: Open Mat
    I'm available everyday but I wanted to know how often you guys think I should train, and on what days. I understand I need to take resting periods, I just can't exactly decide when. Thank you!

    Train as much as you would like. 6 days a week is great. Get it in now while you still have the free time and little in the way of other obligations.
    Question are you doing any other sports or weight lifting or exercises? If so then maybe you need to worry about over training.

    Prior to MMA, I'd normally go to the gym about 2-4 times a week -- some days focusing on upper body work, some for lower body work. But I don't lift heavy weights, and I focus more on speed and technique. I mostly use the machines and occasionally do free weights and benching. I don't know much about MMA training though, but I've been going to the gym since about 8th grade. I'm not so sure what days I should fit in my gym schedule either, which is why I've only been going once a week for the last few weeks. So yeah, I'm also trying to fit in a light gym routine as well.

    That was another concern of mine. Prior to MMA, I would visit the gym 2-4 times per week -- each time focusing on either upper or lower body work. I'm cautious when I exercise, and focus on speed and technique over weight. So I guess another question would be how could I fit in going to the gym with MMA training?
