    You could probably accompish what your accomplishing with less exercise and more focus on nutrition.

    2 full body strength workouts per week is plenty focusing on heavy barbell compound movements and actual strength gains.... squat, bench, deadlift, overhead press, power cleans, rows... add in dips, pullups if you really want to.

    1 hill sprint session is an excellent next addition.

    Then box/cycle the other days... and make sure you take a solid 1 day per week off.
    I second that.

      I agree with this too. I'm not saying its overtraining, because it isn't. However, it isn't necessary to workout that many days to build muscles. Anywhere from 1-3 workouts per week is fine. You can do more if you want, but like I said, it simply isn't necessary.

      You'd probably be better off doing something else that you enjoy on your off days. And speaking of that, exercise is supposed to be good for your mental health such as fighting depression. Anything will do. Let that be walking, mma, swimming, etc.

        Christ, dude. Maybe I'm in the wrong place...

        1) Do you ever workout a body part that is currently sore from a previous training day?
        2) Are you unable to complete full workouts without fatiguing?
        3) Are your weights and/or performance stagnate or decreasing?
        4) Is your piss red, brown, or reddish-brown?
        5) Do you mentally dread a future workout?

        If you answered Yes to any of these you're over-training. If not, carry on.

          The only one I really answered yes to was number 1. But not overly.

              I'm hitting the weights less and doing a bit more cardio.
