MMA : am I over doing it?

Hi guys!

I've been doing MMA for about 8/9 months 3 times per week. I'm pretty addicted to it and want to do more. Mondays I train for two hours, then One hour on Wednesday then on the weekend I do my own 12 round circuit of skipping, bag, pressups,situps, burpees, dips, etc and maybe some weights on Sunday. I'm 28 and pretty fit as I did alot of sport and weight training before MMA, but I'm not sure if I'm over doing it or not with the two hour classes, plus going to the gym to train? Whats the recommended rest period after training etc?

It depends, what is your body telling you? I'm a big believer of listening to your body and not whatever cookie-cutter/template information is out there. If you feel sluggish/drained, have trouble sleeping, feel depressed, lose your appetite, or find yourself feeling ill you may be over training.

The most important thing when training at a pace like this is consistent, restful sleep and a clean diet with plenty of calories. If you aren't training you should either be sleeping or eating. Listen to your body. As a side note, taking a week or so off from training may yield some decent gains in strength and endurance.
