So with a lot of help from this forum, I started lifting for the first time. I've been lifting for a little over a month now, and I'm wondering how I can balance my desire to get stronger/bigger with my desire to improve my cardio and train lots of Muay Thai. A lot of things I've read basically tell me to do absolutely nothing on my off days, so my muscles can heal. But I also see a lot of people around here who mention that they train 6 days a week and still lift on some of those days. So I guess my big question is: how do I get big and strong while still training MT as much as possible? Oh, and I'm also having trouble sleeping enough, as I tend to get a second wind around 10 PM or so. I've always had a problem with early bedtimes for this reason, I can be exhausted at 8 or 9 and wide awake at 10:30. Anybody have any tips for that? So far the lifting is going really well for me, I'm feeling good and I've seen some decent noob gains, so thanks for all the help I've already gotten!
