Bros I'm taking up "martial arts" training again and I have a few questions for yall.
1. How much time should I have beetwen my gym and m.a. training if its both on the same day?
2. After my m.a. training do I drink a pro/dex shake or pro/fat shake? Keep in mind its in the late evenings.

The problem is that martial arts training and weight training are both done when peopl have free time in the evening, and that makes it hard to do them with lots of time rest in between.
I say either do martial arts on your days off from weights, or if u want to train hard in martial arts then lift weights in the morning and do martial arts in the evening so that u have adequate rest and nutrition in between.

I do cardio in the morning 7-8am, lift during my lunch noon-1pm, and thai kickboxing from 6:30-8:00pm. The thai classes are fixed at that time so I felt lifting at lunch would be a better time then at 8:30pm.

When do you plan to take time to let your muscles rest? If you are doing martial arts and lifting, i would assume your muscles are not getting the rest they need.
I do Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Wrestling and it would kill me to do them with my weight training. I am strictly weight training for the time being.

mon : gym
tue : m.a.
wed : gym
fri : gym
sat : sometimes m.a. sometimes off
sun : off
I think that with adequate nutrition and sleep I could pull it off. I am aware that my build will change, more of a Mirko Filipovic look, and less Ronnie, but I'll take hard and cut over huge and bloated.Although huge, hard and cut would also be nice
Also, after the first m.a. training session I realized that maybe it would be a g ood idea to down a pro/dex shake afterwards, since it drained THE SH!T out of me.
I got into m.a. for the benefits it can do for my body visually, not because I want to become competitive in the sport. Like I could become competitive

You will not get a CroCop look, his build is not from MA, he weight trains like crazy and has a team that watches his diet etc...
