Hey everyone, for a long time i have been training atleast 6 times/week and was making a lot of progress. Problem is that I have been stuck for a long time and am always tired and get sick very often.
I think the turning point is when i got a job to make extra money on Sundays. Because of this I go to school and train from Monday to Friday, Saturday i train and work, and Sunday i work all day as well. So really I have no day off every week.
Sense on Tuesdays i only have class from 9-10, do you guys think it would be a good idea to do a double training on Monday (10-11:30 then class from 12-4 and then train again from 5-7) in order to have tuesday nearly 100% off from stress?
Love to hear your opinions.
On a journey towards human excellence.

This is kind of funny because I was researching about the benefits of rest just now...
I would say that the more stressed you are, training-related or otherwise, the more you need to relax and take a break. Nap time, meditation, and drinking tea will do the trick.
If you really do not have the time to rest and relax, either get used to the stress you face or cut back some training sessions....
I hope that helps.....

As Joe Mills said: one a week is better than five, two is better than four and three is perfect.
Viktorius is right, I think.

I see the Joe Mills reference and raise you a Tommy Kono; "...it is the old system of light, medium, and heavy training 3 to 4 times a week and each workout lasting no more than 90 minutes."
Don't double down on monday and DO take Tues off completely. Better yet cut your training days down further and make better progress.
