Training Frequency?

How often should you train if you are looking to fight someday near down the road. Im talkin like a year from now. 2 days a muay thai, 2 days of BJJ? 3 days of muay thai, 3 days of BJJ, or even more?

Now if you werent looking to fight how much should you train 2 days muay thai, 3 days BJJ, etc...

Let me no what everyone thinks. Thanks all.

Train as much as you can. If your gym offers unlimited classes then go to every single class you can. Make sure you are eating properly and getting enough sleep, but train, train, train, train!




What a stud

Yeah man train as often as you can, nothing replaces mat time. There is nothing wrong with taking a bjj class and a muay thai class or whatever in the same day either, I do that quite a bit and once your body adjusts to it its not that bad. Its up to you man but as long as you feel like you are not overtraining and you can tell you are getting better you will be fine. Good luck.

Before you go training, there are two things to keep in mind. One, don't overrtrain. I used to be all "Oh I'm going to do a full body workout six times a week and get so strong!", but all that happens is you get burnt out.

You should do strength and conditioning training mabye four times a week, but as for actual classes like BJJ and MT, train as much as you possibly can.

Put as much effort as you can, it will do wonders for your cardio if you always push your body whenever you can. If you plan on doing it most days of the week, make sure you're eating enough food and getting enough rest to replace whats put out into training.

HOWEVER, you're the only one who knows your body. Ice those sore muscles and attack those acute injuries as they pop up and take care of yourself. Being able to tell the difference between when you're just tired/sore, and when you're really hurt is paramount to intensive training.
