How do I know if I'm working out too much?
Ever since I moved to norhern Calif three weeks ago, I enroll in a boxing gym. I also was surprise to find they have a Muay Thai instructor as well. So I decide to continue Muay Thai while doing boxing as well.
Ever since I moved, I don't have much to do beside training in Muay Thai and boxing. So I usually do some weight work out for about two hours, shadow boxing and bag work for a hour and half then a hour and half of Muay Thai class then a hour and half of boxing. both class also focus some on work out which is very intense.
Very often after doing all of that, I still get urge to continue and feel great. Also I've gained two pounds after all efforts to gains weight in the past has failed.
Even today, on Sunday I'm suppose to be resting, instead of being tired, I'm still really hyperactive and want to work out more.
What is up with this?

If you can still touch your face, you're fine.

You're working out too much when you start to "burn out" or lose motivation to work out.

Pretty much, yes, Cannibal.
However, my point is that sometimes it's better to jog a constant speed than to sprint at the beginning and use up all your gas.

I'm surprised no one's pointed out that exercise is addictive. The more you get, the more you want.

I guess I'm constantly burnt out then x.x It's all that "getting up" and "chewing" excersize I guess, just burns me out ;)
Oh and masters like Kimura went 9 hours a day everyday training/working out, so I don't think anything less than than is "too much"

9 hours a day? What proof do you have?
Can you imagine doing Judo 9 hours a day? You would be fucking gassed.
