    Ive taken alot of time off and juss recently got back into the routine of things
    I injured my knuckles and gave up on combat sports for a while.I did alot of weight lifting in the time frame.
    I was 165-170 before when i was only kickboxing
    its been about a year later and about 208 lbs now, 5"8 short guy

    Ive been working out in the morning and i take my classes in the evening
    its really hard right now, but i think i can adjust. dont know if its too much for me to handle right now, am i pushingmyself too much or what, either way im gonna keep trying till i figure out what my body can handle

    thanks in advance

    Use punctuation.

    If you feel that you can't handle it, then yes, you are doing too much. It really depends on the person to how they feel about their training.

    As for the weights...It depends on your goals really. Heavy weights and low reps are there to help you increase power and strength. Light weights with high reps is to help you with muscular endurace. You decide what is best for you.
