Doesn't sound like overtraining to often do you workout?

When you diet, you're usually missing out on vitamins, minerals, etc. So, I suggest you take a multivitamin as your only supplement. The rest depends on your diet/routine.
Good call on the green tea. My girlfriend drinks it all the time and I drink hers just to piss her off. I guess it was good for me.
first, as i think i've stated before in other posts- i do work in a supplement store and i know my supplements very well. if you are under 18 you aren't supposed to take hydroxycut (says so on the label) and retailers arent allowed to sell it to you.

The reasons are numerous but the biggest issue has to do with the caffeine levels. Caffeine is the active ingredient in hydroxycut and its largely what makes it work. Caffeine in large doses is an appetite suppressant and it chemically interferes with your thyroid glands to speed up your metabolism slightly.

the problem is that with such a large caffeine intake at such a young age (the 3 to 4 pills a day hydroxycuts program eventually requires is equal to roughly an 8 cup pot of coffee) you are exposing yourself to risks of high blood pressure, dysrhythmia, tachocardia and various kidney issues (in severe cases, e.g. hydroxycut while drinking caffeinated drinks- you run the risk of stroke due to elevated blood pressure).

you can also achieve the effects of hydroxycut through drinking a cup of tea 2-3 times a day and you wont have any of the health risks and you will gain the benefits of the natural antioxidants. I highly reccomend white tea or green tea. black tea has more sediments in it and isnt healthy for your kidneys (plus it will stain your teeth). just something to keep in mind.

sorry if this was excessively long or sounds preachy. not my intent. just dont want anyone to get hurt.

aslong as you know your different exercises from one or another and you train each body part you should be able to progress in whatever you want to do.
this is my routine i made please let me know what you think:
Speed = resistant bands
Cardio = running
Strenth = weight training
Power = drop push up

Speed = 6, 5 minute rounds, 5 min rest
Cardio = 5 miles
Strenth = 1 session wrokin all body parts
Power = 10, 3 minute rounds, 5 min rst

Day 1 = speed
Day 2 = cardio + power
Day 3 = cardio + strenth
Day 4 = cardio + speed
Day 5 = cardio + power
day 6 = rest
day 7 = rest

im hoping this will increase my speed and power aswell as fitness and stamina

as i have no partener to help train wrestling or anything else with i cant really progress in that aspect but i do have a series of boxing dvds that learn you from basics to the most advanced moves so hopefully my boxing should be getting better without a training partener.

its a good idea to put your rest days between work days. two days off consecutively tends to be too much time off. also, having a day off between work days allows your body to recover more effectively. i reccomend resting after your strength and power days. so for the schedule you posted you should rest on day 4, move your workouts past that down a day and then take day 7 off as well.
i typically have 3 of days spread between my work days.
