This question is probably more in-depth than what can be answered on here. A few of the many missing details here:
Your age, training history, your goals, progress that you’ve been making, and what these workouts actually entail.
If you have been making progress, don’t feel run down, and you haven’t been experiencing pain or injuries from training, then you might be fine. This really depends on the individual, so keep track of how you feel from week to week. If you find yourself losing enthusiasm for training, then you might be overdoing it. I would recommend taking a week off of structured training every so often. Some people prefer 4-6 weeks, while others prefer longer. In any case, cut your workouts short, or take a few days off during this recovery period.
There are hardly ever black and white answers. All the best!
