    Sounds like it, eat, replenish your fluids and get some rest. Take a couple of days off till you feel like your ready to go..
    Overtraining can also lead to burn out...which is no good. All that training doesnt help if your burnt out and you dont want to go anymore.

    My insomnia happened the day I started feeling like total crap....takin 3 to 5 days will that help my cardio, cause before i started feelin terrible my cardio was great, now its terrible...So do you think takin time off and feeling better will make my cardio even better?

    3-5 days rest would probably help tremendously.

    wow man, cut some training out or your gonna burn out... take a day or two off and just eat as good as you can and rest as much as possible, maybe cut out the workouts in the morning, and just have a run and sleep some more. the three days were your grappling, weightlifting, and grapple or do mma at night is rediculous, more harm than good imo... try sleeping longer, striking in the afternoon, then grappling/mma at night...
