I am always coming onto Muscletalk to read the occassional recipe/article but I saw the overtraining thread below and after last nights session wanted to gather an edcuated opinion on my problem..
I go to BJJ 3 times a week, Monday - Tuesday and Thursday. The sparring in this can get pretty intense but I've gotten a lot fitter these days and now I am back from surgery i am sticking to a good diet/regime, which helps.
On wednesdays I will go to the gym after work - I mostly do TRX machine stuff, KettleBells, pull ups (overhand), DL and some other stuff - all to 15 reps x 3, if i can do 15 i try to increase the intensity.
So yesterday I had increased the intensity as much as I could, I gave it my best and when it came time to put the clothes on and leave I had to sit down for a good 20 minutes sipping my water and shake because I was so absolutely buggered... What i like about my routine is that it works my Cardio at the same time doing strength that I believe is functional to my BJJ.. But i don't see anyone else in the gym hanging out like this and I must look like a right Douche sitting in the corner afterwards!
Does this mean I'm overtraining? I ate pretty damn good the whole day so I'm a bit unsure....
About a month ago I came back to the gym after recovering from Hernia surgery and didnt eat properly which ended up me getting some weird tunnel vision which freaked me out, couldnt see out my left side and then got a killer migraine... This i put down to not having my usual breakfast in the morning and going to the gym anyway (it was an early session).
