    Look at the name
    My cardio is horrible,and I enrolled at a gym close to my office, so i can get an hour of cardio training in at lunch.. Then on Mon,Wed,and Fri, I go train MMA/BJJ. Am I over doing it? keep in mind, i've only been working out BJJ for about a month.

    If you can fit them into your schedule and you have the energy DO 'EM

    My personal experience is that with the help of 2 a day's i was able to reach my goal (in my case it was to get a bodyfat percent below 6%)

    again if you can do 'em cool
    If not don't sweat it

    this is no different than what a boxer does run in the morning train at night or during day. th only thing that you need to do is make sure your diet is in check and your sleep schedule is in check and you will be fine. Also keep drinking that h2O. Good luck

    I agree with Boomer (and not just because I box too, lol), but because just yesterday I just started going all my running in the morning at about 8:30 with only water and some aminos in my stomach. Then doing my normal workout later in the afternoon. It's working good and I feel stronger already.

    I see Dr. Phil as no less credible than anyone else who "creates" Cardio systems. Ok I am a smart ass

    i am training twice a day and it is working for me. It is not to much if you feel ok - as said listen to the body - REST IS AS IMPORTANT AS TRAINING.

    Yes recovery is very important.

    Hey, here in Thailand they won't let you fight if you don't train twice a day. That's six hours a day--each workout is harder than what US Canadian workouts once a day are.

    Just a level difference.
    Come try it.

    Are you in Thailand? I got much respect for the way the Thais train MT and in boxing. There are some guys in my gym now who are from Thailand I wont even attampt to spell their names but they are th emost intense hard working guys i have ever seen. From what they say boxing is becoming pretty big in thailand now ans alot of guys are doing it along with the traditonal Mt.
    Anyways if you wouldnt mind would you type up a typical thai workout I find other peoples workouts very interesting especially after all the bullshit that I have taken for how hard mine is. From what i have hearn the typical thai workout is grueling.

    yes my coach did a couple summers there. Boxing is huge becuase it was proven by the europeans to be very effective when incorperated properly into MT. the MT stance even has an old school and new school, old scholl is more weight on back leg while bouncing the front leg weighting to teep, while new school is more like boxing, waiting to side step the teep and box the guy. Just what I have been told.

    There are old and new styles but they are more about the blocking and the combinations.

    Here is what one of my trainers did (he was Lumpinee Champion 1998--best fighter of the year)
    Morning:
    13km run
    15 minutes jump rope (the heavy clear plastic ones)
    3 Rounds of Shadow
    3 rounds on Bag
    5 round on Thai Pads (pushed harder than you can believe)
    20 minutes of clinching
    Stretching--cool down (all rounds are at least 5 minutes long)

    Afternoon:
    from 5 km-13 km run
    3 rounds Rope
    3 rounds Shadow
    6 rounds on Thai Pads
    3 rounds on Heavy Bag
    20 minutes of clinching
    (pushups are done between rounds)
    situps are done at the end
    Stretching

    AND THE THING THAT MOST PEOPLE DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS ALL OUTSIDE TRAINING IN 36c WEATHER--WITH 93% HUMIDITY--IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE IT--YOU HAVE NO IDEA

    The funny thing is if you check out my thread about no such thing as overtraining all the forum know it all :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:s said i did to much and my workout is nothing compared to this one lmfao. It is so great when the fucking jackass kno-it-alls on this board are blown up.
    Thanks for the post Teep. DO you train in Thailand? if you do please post up some info on what it is like training in a true Thai camp. Kind of like a day in the life i would just like to see if it is as grueling as boxing and I like to read about how hard true fighters work

    I agree that their is no such thing as overtraining. Their is such thing as not having the motivation to train twice a day but their is no such thing as overtraining.
