your statement seems contradictory => you need help fitting everything in, but you are having trouble recovering. it sounds like you should just do less.

i've recently had on average 2 days to train outside of grappling classes. this is what has worked for me:

day 1: ~85% pressing, ~15% pulling
handstand/press to hs work
ring support/cross statics
L statics
very minimal work (just for a bit of stimulus): BL and FL
30 min jump rope

day 2: ~60% weights, ~30 pulling, ~10% pressing
squat 5x5
CJ 3x3
pullup work:
-nipples over bar
-l pullups
-slow ice cream makers w/ static holds when chin comes to bar
BL and FL statics
very minimal work: press to HS
30min jump rope

(note 1: day 1 is at home, day 2 is at gym)

these are the skeletons; i add dips, DL, planche, etc. according to how i feel and time

i have seen decent progress with this. i know that most all my pressing is on one day. i originally did that for convenience since i was at home, but now i've seen more progress doing that compared to before. if i didn't have grappling and could add another day, i would probably have a 60-70% pulling day. i get enough of that in BJJ right now though.

pull from that whatever you think could help
