How often should I train?

This is a copy of my MMA classes.

Mon: 6pm-7pm Muay Thai, 7pm-8pm Jiujitsu/ Wrestling, 8pm-9pm Muay Thai
Tues: 7pm-8pm Muay Thai, 8pm-9pm Jiujitsu/Wrestling
Wed: 6pm-7pm Muay Thai, 7pm-8pm Jiujitsu/Wrestling, 8pm-9pm Muay Thai
Thurs: 7pm-8pm Muay Thai, 8pm-9pm Jiujitsu/Wrestling
Friday: 6pm-7pm Muay Thai,7pm-8pm Jiujitsu/Wrestling
Saturday: 9am-10am Jiujitsu/Wrestling, 10am-11am Muay Thai
Saturday: OPEN MAT 3pm-430pm FOR ALL
Sunday: 10am-1230pm MMA CONDITIONING CLASSES FOR ALL

Now I work full time 40-45 hour job. Nights/Weekends/Days whatever the schedule is that week. The schedule is so wild never the same. Now how often should you at least make it to train. 1 day a week 2,3? What is the norm usually? Thanks all!!

well honestly depends on what ur training for. Since you;ve just started I would do mondays, Weds and Friday; Muay Thai and BJJ class. And then as you get your condictioning up add another day or weekend in there. But if your lookin to be the next UFC fighter then the question is what day do u take off and what school has training starting at sun up til sun down. lol

But thats a good start and then add in another BJJ class bc its the hardest to learn and practice means everything. I go 4 times a week to pretty much the same schedule and sat for open mat and boxing class. But I by all means arent looking to make anything of MMA. I suck! lol

Training isn't restricted to only taking classes. You can get a heavy bag for the home. Keep hitting it with all parts of your body to strengthen your bones and body.

i dont think hitting a bag at home is a good idea only if ur not a really good at it because u might develop a bad technique

^ thats true but if he works the techniques he learns at his muay thai class then it could be used to make his technique better.

I have 4 2.5 hour classes/week and that's really plenty for me, with a 40h/week job.

Training only once a week isn't enough, I'd suggest at LEAST 3 times.

I try to train at least 3 times a week for at least three hours. The past couple weeks, I've had one day off where I didn't do anything and just recharged and the rest of the time I was training for 5-8 hours a day. It's extremely hard when you have a job though, but I only work on the weekends and I've had the past two weeks off. Try and train at least 3 times a week for at least 3 hours, but again it depends on what you're training for. If you want to actually fight then train as much as you possibly can
