Grappling, overtraining and injuries
I went to 4 classes yesterday. 1 kickboxing and 3 grappling.
And when I went to one class today, I felt weird like I was going to injure myself. So I didn't stay for my other JJ class. My cardio was fine, but my muscles were not that sore but my body felt allot more fragile.
2 calsses a day is fine. I would love to train 4 times a day. I have enough cardio, but for some reason I start feeling more injury prone when I do that.
Now I need to take tomorrow off. Rest my body so I can perform good on thurs.
I need advice. Does anyone else experience this?
I usually find that I have to ramp up my activity slowly in order not to end up totally exhausted. How often do you train normally?
Your body needs time to repair itself. It's just the nature of things. If your body is telling you that its worn out and at risk of injury, it probably is.
Make sure you get enough sleep, water and calories.
Is there any reason you need to train four times a day?

But you know what? If I show up and I'm un focussed and aching then I don't roll or I don't stay for ground.
After a year out because of broken ribs, I take better care of myself.

Answer: I usually train 2 times a day, but I wish I can train 4 times, but my body can't handle it.
Some days I have the urge. I'm taking today off, at lest rolling. That's when I really feel it.
I have wondered if it would be better to break up my training schedual. Grappling 1 day, and kickboxing the next. Instead of Grappling/kickboxing everyday.
