    My class schedule is as follows. 5:30-7 Kickboxing, 7-8:30 Judo and 8:30-10pm BJJ. During all of this I get really, really hungry which as stupid as it sounds, really affects my performance. I would eat a big meal beforehand but then I'd be all bloated and again my performance would suffer (plus chance of hurling), what/when should I eat to stop this? Thanks.

    4 and a half hours of training! I'm not fat but I have to eat something every 3 hours. get some nuts or carbs in between... or lighten your load

    That is a pretty ridiculous schedule IMO. Can't you split them on different days?

    Sounds like a good idea, I would split the classes up but I'm at University and doing the classes there (so awesome that a university has a BJJ, Judo and Kickboxing club), for some reason all the clubs do it on Tuesday, which in a way works as a kind of cardio. But yeah, thanks for the recipe.

    How many days a week do you train like this? If you don't take care of yourself it's going to lead (or already has) to over training.

    that is not overtraining. If you get to the point where you dont feel good or are just to tired to train then take a day or two off otherwise keep working hard. And mix some bcaa's with water and sip on that instead of just water. After the class drink a gatoraid mixed whey then eat a good meal with lean meat and slow digesting carbs

    If he only trained once a week like that maybe. But if he is training 4-6 days a week like this, then it is over training.
