My MMA workout, NE GOOD?

I recently started doing kickboxing/BJJ and realized that my BB routine just isnt gonna be effective for my new style of training. Here what im thinking of doing, wondering if im MAASIVLY over training

I take classes mon-thurs friday off then saturday. The classes consist of minimal cardio, maybe 5 mins of sit ups/push ups, But mostly sparring and working technique n learning new stuf, keeping this in mind heres what im thinking.

MONDAY and FRIDAY
Morning- DO a weight lifting circuit. Im gonna do the team quest workout, where u load a 25 on the bar, n do like 7 exercises back to back, 8 reps of each, liek bent rows,squats, good mornings, all this stuff. You do this complete routine 3 times. Then after this ill do a full body circuit, like flat DB bench, to lat pull down, to tricep, to bI , to legs and so on, And do this 3 times as well.
NIGHT- Fight class

Tuesday and thursdays
Morning
Im gonna do the team quest plyometric program(upper and lower body)
an externsive ab routine, then do a cardio circuit, like 3 minute hitting the mitts, 3 minutes heavy bag on the ground pounding, 3 minute jump rope, and things along this line
NIGHT-Class
WED
MORNING
This day im gonna do 4 Big lifts for overall strength, and keep myself strong, Prob Squat, Flat, Military, Clean, and do heavy weight
Night- class

So basically Mon and Friday do full body circuit training, WED Core lifts, and tues thurs agility/speed work/abs

I might as well show you my diet as well, what you guys think, is it enuff cals?

Meal 1
8 eggwhites
2 pieces whole grain bread
1 cup of kashi protein cereal

Meal 2
1 can of tuna, 1 serving of mayo

Meal 3
3 whole egss, and 2 eggwhites, 1 serving mayo(eggsalad)
2 pieces whole grain bread

Meal 4
Either chicken,fish,steak or chicken and either brown rice or whole wheat pasta, equals about 60 grams carbs, 40 pro


Meal 5
either chicken,steak,ground turkey... No carb source

Im gonna see how i react to this diet. I just started doing TONS more cardio then im used to, and with the new training im sure ill drop weight very rapidly, ill see how it goes, if im hungry ill just throw in a shake or another meal

looks good to me

I've only had one fight but that looks like a good workout to me. By the way whats your record if you have one? I'm 1-0 but my win came against a fellow newcomer so im not sure how good i am yet.

One thing I noticed about people who train hard..is they don't do alot of pushups. Why is that? I think pushups are one of the best upper body excercises there is...maybe that's just me though. Especially for fighting, with the work it does for your triceps.

Good start, heres my advice

Eat more veges

keep ur meals small, but eat whenever you feel hungry

Keep your heavy lifts but cut out your small weights altogether (seriously) and spend that time working your tecnique or doing mma drills. Use weights to build muscle and then practice the thing you want the muscle for!

maybe invest in some chickens cos you sure are eating a lot of eggs! (jokes)

Eat more veggies, yes. Lift heavy weight, no. JMO, but most athletes that need flexibility for their sport, prefer high rep/lower weight. Builds good strength, while avoiding loss of flexibility and muscle growth ( overall size). But it depends on your style of fighting also.

I didnt notice in your workout a dedicated time for lower back, buttock training. Equal time to abs and to these areas are critical for both strikers and BJJ fighters.

Good luck in your training and fight career.
