      Not really, maybe I get a bit tired on boxing days since it's right after the gym but nothing too bad

      Symptoms of overtraining: Getting too fricking swole, bragging rights, nausea (from excessive female attention)

    Are your lifts going up?
    Is your cardio going up?

    If you're making progress then you aren't overtraining. Maybe you are(by an eensy bit) but then all you need to do is deload once in a while.

    I don't know why people like you ask these questions as if we'll be able to give you a meaningful answer. Figure it out for yourself, you're the only one who knows how you feel

    Boxxing gives you brain damage which is worse. You'll end up as dumb as andrew tate or sneako. They could have had average IQ if they didn't engage in fighting sports.

      You can ameliorate the brain damage with creatine and other supplements. Recommend eating gingko biloba, eggs (acetylcholine), and brains (all the nutrients in brains, similar to how eating skin will give collagen, and eating muscle meat has lots of protein).

        Probably better to just avoid the brain damage in the first place tbh

        Unless you have aspirations to become a professional boxer, and are actually talented enough to make significant amounts of money, you should avoid it

      Boxing professionally has a chance to give you brain damage
      Training doesn't

    I had a similar schedule as yours while practicing mma 3 times a week with constant sparring and I was doing full body strenght workouts at the gym. After 6 months of that I felt overall depression and couldnt even get myself to go to the gym, instead I took break and did some mild calisthenics outside under the sun like twice a week or whenever I felt like, this weakened stage lasted for 3 months until I naturaly felt like going back to lifting. Now I only lift 3 times a week while still prioritizing strenght and all my lifts, gains and mood overall improved immensely. In my case I realize I was addicted to the adrenaline and it was actualy slowing down my gains

    you're fine.
    when i was overtraining it was extremely obvious. i would literally be kept up all night from extreme cramping and no matter what position i was laying in, i was in physical agony. it destroyed my resting and sleeping. my performance was STEEPLY decreasing and i was basically always recovering from a new injury as soon as one "got better". it was like an addiction.
    i was in university at the time and was using working out vigorously as a coping mechanism and a way to avoid doing homework.

    You will be able to tell. The only time I started getting overtrained, my sleep quality took a nosedive. I ramped up to 65 mile weeks rooning to quickly. I cut down and I felt better after a couple weeks. I've heard that if you are truly overtrained it can frick you up for months. One other thing is that it also depends on non-training stressors. Just think about professional athletes: some of them have 30+ hour training weeks but they can handle it because it's all they do (also steroids, probably)
