hm.

7 hours is pushing it for sleep, though you have a few days off...

the others are gonna ask how long you been training?

vital stats?
brief description of your weight routine?
6 meals, how many cals and protein and such?

personally, i feel you should move that thurs lift to fri, since the first 3 days prolly tire you out.

Yeah, how long have you been training? I started about 3 months ago and was fatigued for the second month of training. Now, after 6 JJ classes and a kick boxing class in a week I'm tired, but still still strong at the end of the week.

I asked my jiu jitsu instructor about feeling tired. He said that I should keep training every day UNLESS I find myself tossing and turning at night. He said to take a day off if I can't sleep. Seemed like strange advice to me, but it seems to work.

Ive been training in mma for about 4 months but i recently just moved up to the advanced class which is 2 hours instead of 1, also i just started the boxing last week. as for my lifting my reps and sets change from low to high every week but basically this is it
Tues-bench,cleans,dips,shoulder press,french curls,shoulder laterals,upright row/shrug
Thurs- Squats, straigh leg deadlift,puul-ups,bent over rows,calf raises,bicep curls,wrist curls
As for calories i cant tell you for sure but its a shitload lol and i make sure to take in at least 150 grams of protein a day, my diets pretty clean for a teen. hope this helps and thanks for the advice so far

Maybe you should spread out your off-days, instead of bunching them all together.

How old are you?
Height/Weight?
Diet doesn't sound nailed.
How long do your lifting periods last?
Try sleeping more, I find myself very fatigued unless i sleep 8.30-9 hours.
and as above, you could try spreading it out.

Exactly what I was gonna say.

Ideally you want to have 1 day training, then 1 day off.

Resulting in 4 days training with 3 days rest

Im 17 about 5'9 153 7%bf. I lift no longer than an hour and its usually just 45 minutes. i cant spread the mma training or boxing because its scheduled classes but i could lift and do cardio on my own instead of with the wrestling team. As for my diet i was thinking that mabye i wasnt taking in enough carbs.
