Run and run some more. You mentioned you smoked and smoking would make you eat less so thats maybe why you cna see your muscles with no working out, a low body fat percentage becuase of lack of food.

as it was said, probably from smoking you don't have much fat. I wouldn't try to put on too much weight, but strengthen the muscles you have, it weight comes, so be it. and then run, run, and run some more, try and get those lungs back in shape - I don't know if its possible...how much did you smoke???

btw , for your age id say your under weight.

im 15, i box for a year now, im not fat at all, and im not really super toned im just an avrage thing guy.
and i was 175lbs im 6ft 2


unless your quite small in size then, you dont wight muich and if that you in ur pic, then ur pretty skinny.

if you box ata gym then it dosent really matter aslong as your fit, but you may want to eat protein and lift weights to gain size.

Don't worry too much about your weight right now, unless you are extremely light for your height. How tall are you?
Also, smoking is always a bad thing that can only work against you but it's never too late to get in shape.
About energy:
eat properly, well balanced low fat meals, and some multi-vitamins.
To gain speed you can do different things. For example you can train with heavier gloves while sparring or hitting the bag. You can also use weighted gloves and practice speed drills. Use weights but not too much, for than make you tight and slow.
To condition your lungs you need to do a lot of road work. Dont forget to mix it up though, when you run you need to also do wind sprints these are very helpful.

sounds to me you are leaning more towards bodybuilding and not so much boxing. If you want to box you dont need to try too hard to gain weight, let your body fall into its natural weight on its own. If you were too heavy or fat then I would say yes lose weight but not in your case.

Its good to know you've stopped smoking, its a horrible habbit especialy at a young age like yours, i mean 16 is when girls start gettin hot and most girls think of that as a major turn off since its so bad for your skin teeth and health. So by stopping you've not only done something super healthy but you've also greatly enhanced your chance at getting girls, which should be a huge insentive to not smoke again.

For your other problem. Check out a boxing gym as soon as you can so you can. If you want to gain weight you u gotta switch up your diet. 3000 calories a day is really easy to hit. honestly i could probobly get 3000 before lunch time. Try eating every 3 hours. HEALTHILY of course stick with lean meats like chicken breasts turkey breats ham-steaks and seafood. So for breakfast have like an omlete and toast, then after have an apple. for lunch have a 2 sandwhiches, or some pasta with some chicken. then another light snack (protein shake?) have a good solid dinner, with a meat, vegetables and carbs. and then after have another light snack.

As far a working out if u want to lift weights the exercises u should be doing are bench press, military press, squats, lunges and rows. Along with your bodyweight stuff like push ups chin ups, pull ups and dips. These exercises will get you strong and have actualy helped me with speed as well.

Honestly unless your going HARD biking isnt much cardio...its a way of transportation. Start running and swimming.

Good evening, i had 3 Training sessions so far.
everything goes great! I can see my weight increase and today i have reached an milestone my Training partner said i did great, after the training session i Came in home and ate Brussel sprouts and before the training another plate of brussel sprouts. Then i went mirror boxing with gloves and weights in it, Did 75 situps. I feel my speed and power increase so i had 400ml of milk and food with 40grams of proteins and i can feel my body and arms. should i repeat this training in home 3 times a week or is it to bad for me?,
