    Just a simple question... If I have to lift and train Muay Thai or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the same day, how many hours of rest in between should I have?
    -Thanks

    Just listen to your body.
    These questions are annoying because there is no magic answer, everyone has different endurance and intensity in their workouts.
    Just try to get enough rest so that you feel good to go, and if you don't... rest more next time.

    keeps you from overtraining and causing excessive muscle breakdown.

    Your body needs replenishment after exercise. This gives you time to refeed and recover.

    Just echoing what i've read several times. Its in max-ot, john berardi, etc.


    How can you even get a good lift after training muay thai or vice versa? Resting in this case is common sense.

    on weekends i lift early in the morning and play basketball in the evening...to me i've found it fine to go about 4 hours...this gives me time to have a post lifting shake, 1 more real solid meal and another preworkout(basketball) shake(whey/amino acids/maltodextrine/creatine). ill also take a nap in that 4 or 5 hour gap. i can have an intense leg workout in the morning and still feel pretty good playing basketball later in the day as long as i warm up properly.

    listen to your body. some people can train harder for longer than others

    diet and 8 hours of sleep can make u train harder and longer

    Doing both, you'll know for sure once you start trying to do much of anything if you're overdoing it. I had a monday off, did the bill starr monday routine in the morning, came home, napped, and tryed to go to bjj that night and couldn't do shit.

    BJJ/MT are not even close to being the same as basketball. Sorry.

    I can't even shoot hoops at all 3 of the 4 days that I do lift. And I don't lift very heavy at all :mamoru:. I might pull it off on back day but thats it. I have to have at least 4hrs rest. You are not lifting hard enough if you can do BJJ/MT or even basketball afterwards. Run after leg day...not happening.

    LOL. I was lifting right next to a guy who was playing ball and then doing curls. Someone that was playing with him came up to him and commented on how great a workout he was getting by lifting after bball. I would have a shitty lift if i did that after bball


    * If you can do it, give yourself 8hrs rest. If you can't, listen to your body.

    If you can do BJJ/bball/whatever an hour after lifting, you are not lifting hard. Your body may eventually break down and scream at you if you do too much all at once. I had great endurance when i was young but did too much and got injured...4hrs of basketball on concrete followed by 2hrs of karate every weekday. Im still feeling the effects ten years later.You may not see it coming, but too much takes a toll on your body whether you feel it or not.

    If I tried to do squats/deads on the same day as BJJ, my back immedately told me to fuck off.

    I did Leg day + BJJ on the same day. My body self-destructed after the first 30 mins of BJJ.

    I've seen people who can workout 6 hours after a BJJ class. Yet me, it takes me a good day? I'm normally sore/tired as fuck the next day. Listen to your body.
