Hey guys, I was curious if doing this weekly would result in overtraining or if the non-lifting days would result in loss of muscle or anything, even if I feel fine?

max strength training on Monday (just strength training)
core and MMA class on Tuesday (split up by a few hours)
circuit conditioning for an hour, then straight to wrestling for an hour on Wednesday (back to back)
core and MMA class on Thursday (again, not back to back)
explosive strength training on Friday (just strength training)
Muay Thai for an hour, then straight to jiu-jitsu for an hour on Saturday (back to back)

I ask mainly about Wednesday and Saturday where I go straight from a 1 hour class right to another. I heard over 55 minutes of straight like conditioning causes muscle breakdown? I just want to be sure both days are beneficial and wont negate my strength training? But it's not like im just running on a treadmill for 2 hours right, both wednesday and saturday those classes consist of using all your muscles they are more "conditioning" than "cardio" right?
