For everyone who doing sports, no matter what kind of sport it is: do you think it is possible to train daily, especially when you consider that you are working from Monday to Friday or even to Saturday in a week and the issues and doings in everyday life are added to it?

To give a closer look in my life as a sportsman: I am training three days a week, just to improve my skills as martial artist, to build muscles and to keep fit for my main sport. And there is a lot to do to gain a higher level and I am so ambitious to come at this level to get better. The obstacle to it is the lack of time because of obligations and responsibility I have for my life.

So it is possible to train daily anyway?

You can.

Wake up early and go gym.

Or go gym after work. You can also buy training gear for home.

It's absolutely possible. The question should be is it an optimal approach? The consensus is generally no. The body needs time to rest, recover, adapt, and grow. I don't mind sacrificing a limited social life for the few added hours of sleeping and eating in addition to a hectic lifting schedule, but my work life ultimately gets in the way of truly living the day to day life of an athlete.

i usually play badminton every other day with cricket nets in between so monday wednesday and friday is badminton. tuesday thursday and saturday is cricket nets and sunday is just a light jog kr swim or whatever i feel comfortable. It's not too stressful and balances out quite well.

Yes it is. In fact it seems to be the norm among a lot of the hardcore amateur endurance athletes I meet.

I'm just getting back into the habit of running properly and I'm up to 6 days a week, with resistance work 4-5 times a week. You've just got to learn to regulate fatigue and understand that it takes a while to condition your body to tolerate the constant stress. You also have to remember that a good diet and sleep are your friends.

I think it is sufficient when I train two days a week in a gym. Think about other training methods instead. As a martial artist, I can train some forms from Taekwondo and doing shadow boxing the day after. Or practising techniques. Or running 30 up to 45 minutes a day. Stretching would be daily withput a doubt. Do you rhink that is a balanced training plan?
