At the moment i work out 3 times a week - Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I decided to start doing Kung Fu, but the trainer always has us doing lots of pushups, and even other exercises that works biceps / backs etc.

Don't you think it'll kinda halt my working out, if i say train chest in the morning friday, and then have to do pushups/other exercises again in the evening? Or what do you guys think?

As long as you eat enough and eat clean, it might even help you, who knows give it a shot man.

it will hinder your progress and your gains wont be as good..You can still get sore from pushups and doing cable curls and all that BS.It could lead to overtraining. I would do a strenght routine if i were you.. 5x3 for big compound movements.Squats,deadlifts,cleans.Let your chest get worked out in class since you do pushups,arms too.Or you can do really simple 2 sets(8-12 repz)for arms and chest.

Im in a similar situation to you, going to start up thai boxing again at the end of the month, i only went to a few sessions before i had to quit because of exams, but i found it did affect my recovery times and i had to alter my training routine, i could not train legs after a session and so on.

true gains may not be as good as if you could focus on bbing, but you'll still get good gains if your diet is up to scratch, I seriously doubt you'll get overtraining lol.
