    Just wondering how everyone who does MMA structures their workouts with their MMA..
    Personally, Im still trying to find a balance and well, something that will work for me, but right now (with varying experimentation) it looks like this:

    Monday - Kickboxing 2 hours [Weightlifting Morning]
    Tuesday - BJJ 3 hours (2x 1 1/2 hour splits, morning and night)
    Wednesday - Kickboxing 2 hours [Weightlifting, Morning]
    Thursday - BJJ 1 1/2 hours
    Friday - BJJ 1 1/2 hours
    Sat - Open Mat BJJ training
    Sunday - [Weightlifting]

    Really thats all Im managing to fit in.. Im thinking of upping weightlifting to Thursday as well.. Its overall, very tiring.. but I really can't get enough of it :D BJJ leaves me very dead, at this point im rolling nonstop with my BJJ to try and speed up my game.. I see my week as pretty cardio intense, so I'm eating as much as i can, as often as I can, so i can still try and make gains off my weightlifting, another note.. I just recently started weightlifting again.. I've lost 15-20lbs since i stopped a year ago, but since theres a gym nearby now Im back again.. though with this setup its gonna be hard T.T

    I'd love to see everybodys setup!!
    (I also work Fri/Sat nite Bar.. lonnnng nightshifts, so Fri and Sat i keep relatively low intensity)

    that seems a hell of a lot of training. I would badly overtrain on that scheduel and not recover one bit. Mine is as follows

    Monday- day off
    Tuesday- Muay thai 1 1/2 hours
    Wednesday- Muay thai 1 1/2 hours
    Thursday- Weights 1 hour plus light half hour run after
    Fri- Muay thai 1 hour
    Saturday - muay thai 2 hours
    Sunday- rest

    That seems to work really well for me.

    Mondag: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
    Tuesday: Vale Tudo
    Wednesday: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
    Thursday: Vale Tudo
    Friday: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
    Saturday: Submission Wrestling
    Sunday: REST

    Monday - Rest
    Tuesday - Weights
    Wednesday - Rest
    Thursday - Weights
    Friday - Muay Thai (2 hours)
    Saturday - Weights
    Sunday - Muay Thai (2 hours)

    If I had any more than just the 2 classes I'd probably only lift twice a week, most peoples schedules are just too busy to lift 3 times a week. I'm thinking of adding in a cardio session on one of the off days at some point, but I've only started Muay Thai recently so I'll wait a while to settle into my current routine.

    Just a boxer, but incase you're wondering anyways:

    ("skill work" is basically what would be done at the gym with the exception of focus pads and sparring)

    Monday - light skill work/sandbag work
    Tuesday - Boxing gym 2 hours
    Wednesday - Lifting
    Thursday - Boxing gym 2 hours
    Friday - Skill work and conditioning
    Saturday - Lifting + light plyometrics (eventually will progess to complex training)
    Sunday - Skill work conditioning

    something like that
