    I would think it would depend on how long you've been training and if you've worked up to that. I just increased my workout frequency, and maybe a little bit the intensity, and it made me feel tired for a while. Why are you asking? Are you feeling something? If you feel fine with what you're doing, then your body is probably ok with it. Also, it's good to meet another martial artist on here. I used to train in kickboxing, but the gym was too far away. Hopefully I'll find another eventually.

    Hi there,
    I`ve found one sign is when you get many little injuries that don`t heal but persist.A lot depends on how frequently and hard you train and how you build it up;even your age.For me,I don`t train every day to give myself time to recover-the other side of exercise.Looking at your schedule,I`d say you need more rest,maybe another day off.
    All the best with your training!

    Un-explained fatigue even with proper sleep, grumpiness, soreness lasting for more than a couple days, you just shot your neighbor and have no idea why, etc...

    But really ? Overtraining is a function of the amt of energy you have on hand
    You get overdrawn in the calorie bank for whatever reason and you're going to be overtraining

    If you're eating enough and getting enough rest you can hit the workouts like gangbusters

    But if you're doing almost everyday and doing twofers besides? You're def going to have to up the calorie intake
    Take a look at some of the diets on here and check if there are any guidelines for the amount of daily workouts you do ... I bet there are
