That sounds like a pretty good workout. You may just not be breathing good in your fights. I know it sounds insignificant but there is a huge difference between breathing good and not breathing. If your not breathing in your fights you have to make breathing a habit in practice by putting it as a top priority in your mind. And visualize yourself breathing in your fights even when your resting.
Anyway, as far as your work out, I would start working in a wieght lifting routine. Nothing to much, something like chest and shoulders one day, legs and back another. Do a mix of heavy and light lifting. Make sure to do those shoulder raises. And dont over do it with the wieghts. Two days a week is plenty. If you do any two-a-days (lifting and gym work in the same day for example) make sure you have a solid 5-6 hour break in between workouts.
As far as burnouts, I would go ahead and make the last burnout in a round the last 30 seconds. So two 10 second burnouts then a 30 second burn out to end it with.
Also ask your coach he probably knows more than me.
