What dempseyroll said. Over 20 = Endurance.

You should be doing both, focusing more on whichever one best suits your goals.

It would be better, in my opinion to change it on a longer basis.

week 1-4 strength
week 5-9 endurance

swimming is fine, but try HIIT stuff to really get that endurance up

Could i use the HIIT training in a pool for example swim 2 lengths at medium pace then sprint one length then back to 2 lengths medium pace etc .... or would it be more effective on a bike?

It would probably be more effective in the pool.

so if i was to do HIIT in a pool in the mornings and weights in the afternoon (6 days a week monday-saturday) with mma training in the evening (monday and wensday). and i also want to add some mauy thai on Tuesday and thursday evenings but this wont be for a few months. and resting on sundays.

would this be beneficial in the long run or would it be to much in the long run and have a negative effect on my body?

It really depends on you. If your recovery is top notch, youll be fine. I would ease into a little more then that. Maybe go to the gym 3-4 times a week and get used to that, then add in swimming, then go to MMA. Make sure you are eating right and getting 8+ hours of sleep too.

well i have been doing mma training close to a month now along with weights so i plan to carry on like that for another week then add swimming then after another month of that add the mauy thai.

im eating about 5-6 small meals a day normally egg in the morning a subway for lunch and lots of green with a little meat for dinner and fruit for the othe 2 meals between breakfast- lunch and lunch-dinner. i want to add some whey protein in there where would it be best to add it? as a meal or just as a supplement after training ?
