Beginning MMA training - Should you start slow or dive right in?

I'm asking because my first day was today. I am athletic but I haven't been doing anything for months so i'm really out of shape.

I did really good in class but at the end I rolled with a guy and it exhausted me so much I had to pull over on the ride home to throw up. It felt absolutely horrible.

I'm better now but I can feel my body got a pretty good workout. Now i'm wondering if I should go back for the evening classes, or if I should just take it easy. I'm eager to learn, but I don't want to push myself too hard. What would you do?

In my opinion, at the very beginning you should not be working out your muscles too hard. Try to train all your muscles, and don't exhaust an individual muscle too much. Otherwise you'll get muscle ache, and you have a bigger chance of injury. Besides, in the first trainings, your muscles start to use more of the muscle fibers - and I think that holds help for this - exercises like wall sit, holding pushup/crouch position as much as you can, and other similar. I think that in a week or two, you can start training more intense.

Anyway, I'm not that competent about this.

Thats how its supposed to me man you should be on the verge of throwing up in your training sessions for a while, your body will slowly get used to it. Makes you respect the fighters going 5 5 min rounds, cardio and muscle endurance is no joke and it takes a long time to develope.
