    So I'm starting at a martial arts/fitness studio in a few days. They offer several different programs (Krav Maga, Crossfit, MMA training, groundfighting are the ones I'm interested in). Right now my work schedule is 24 hour shifts on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    1. Can I substitute taking these classes for lifting? For example if I do KM 2x a week, Crossfit x 1, and MMA x 1? I understand that CrossFit will probably give me a good ass-kicking, which I am looking forward to.
    2. If I go to this place 4 times a week and run/swim on the side, am I overtraining?
    3. Am I stretching myself too thin by trying too many things at once?

    I have a feeling I might be doing too much by trying out three things. Prob. going to just stick to KM and Crossfit.

    Crossfit takes no longer then 30 minutes.
    Do Crossfit in the morning whenever you can.
    I'll do ground fighting (should be BJJ) 2 days a week... and fit in KM when you can.
    Skip the running and swimming for a few weeks until your body adjust to whatever you plan on doing.. or else I'm pretty sure you'll burn out.

    Mon - Crossfit then BJJ or KM
    Wednesday - BJJ or KM in the afternoon
    Friday - BJJ or KM in the afternoon
    Saturday - Crossfit then BJJ or KM
    Sunday - Rest?

    Unless you think you'll have enough rest after those 24 hour shifts.. then do Crossfit in the mornings also on Wed/Fri.

    I'll skip MMA for now and build a decent base in both ground and stand up.
