my schedule has been
Monday - chest & tri

Friday - legs
Sat & Sun off
My conditioning seems to be lagging. I have been told in class that weight training and conditioning don't work well together.
And to lay off the weight training if I want to make progress on conditioning.
Can I get some guidance on if I should do both or stop weight training
I see no reason why you should lay off weight training to make progress on conditioning; weight training IS conditioning. I don't see any cardio in your schedule, and that is an important element of conditioning. If your cardio amounts to two days a week of Uechi, it's not enough. You need 4-5 days a week to improve, and at least three to maintain when you've found you're where you want to be. If your conditioning is lagging, this is the area to work on. Swimming, running, rowing, boxing... however you prefer to get it, do it. You're not going to keep doing something you hate, so find what you love. If you find you prefer running, make sure you read up on do's and don'ts, or you're going to hurt yourself: pains in your feet, shin splints, aches in your legs, wrecked knees or ankles... Oh, and you don't need two days off from working out. Take one most of the time (I usually take Sunday). Your alternating patterns work to keep yourself from overtraining. Right now I'm doing 5 days of cardio, with three days of lifting per week, to get back to where I want to be.
I don't see Abs in your schedule. These are important. Your abs recover quickly, so you can work them every other day.
