Thumbs down Help With Routine.

Hey, im currently at college and weigh about 145 pounds im only 16.

Im trying to get a good routine to maximise my training of MMA, and weight lifting.

I do Muay Thai and MMA on a monday, and want to start BJJ on a thursday. also i want to goto the gym 3 x a week, i currently go just once on a wednesday.

What would be the best way to schedule the gym around the MMA so my body gets the rest it needs?

Well the first thing you need to understand is every person is different, and recovery times are going to vary across the board. You will need to find out through personal experience whether your body recovers better by having a weight training day come before or after a MMA/BJJ training day. This is something that I would set up for myself, but keep in mind that I am already used to being in the gym 3-5 times a week, and sometimes more than once per day.

Sunday - Rest
Monday - MMA/MT
Tuesday - Weight Training
Wednesday - Rest
Thursday - BJJ
Friday - Weight Training
Saturday - Rest

What you have here is 4 days of training with 3 days of rest. For your average person, this would be a pretty good taxing load on your system. The two consecutive days off on the weekend will ensure a good recovery, as will the one day somewhere in the middle of the week. If you find that this isn't enough and that you might be able to do more, then feel free to tweak however you wish, but I'm sure something like this will be more than enough.
