You want to lose weight? #1 stop eating garbage foods, think about what you are fueling your body with. #2 Wear heavy clothes when in the gym working, sweatshirts and stuff. Sweat that **** off of you. Dont go in there in a tank top and shorts, go in there dressed to drop some weight. #3 When your in the gym, work your ass off. #4 Drink lots of water, water is a natural ingredient in your body for burning fat.

You can try all kinds of methods for quick weight lose but the best method is simply working hard and then working even harder. When you make weight before the fight even comes off it will make it so much easier for you rather than drying out the last couple of days before the fight. Drying out will leave you drained and weak. Remember, you are not doing the pros yet. They have a full day to replenish their bodies from cutting the weight. You as an amatuer, will weigh in a few hours before your bout. And if you had to cut weight it will not be enough time to get your body what its needs to fight strong.

So follow the simple suggestions that I listed up top and you will be just fine. Go out there, kick some ass and make your friends at boxing scene proud. We will be rooting for you.................Rockin' :boxing:

Rockin gave some really good advice. also, remember that breakfast and lunch are the times to eat the most food. youre metabolism rate throughout the day is much higher than when you sleep even if you do nothing, so what you eat at dinner will not be converted into useful energy. also, the meal you ate yesterday is what is fueling you today.

Good point there too. I always ate very light for dinner, having eaten breakfast and lunch already in the day. Forgot about that, good point Blackburna944...........Rockin' :boxing:

For droping Weight, make sure you eat right. If you want to lose weight dont eat nothing after 6:30 pm. Never eat before working out. When i start fighting in the amatures at a young age. I would eat at school(lunch) come home then on the way to the gym do my home work, First thing i did when i got there was Warm up streches,Loosen up a bit. % rounds shadow box, 5 rounds rope,5 depending how i felt on the bag, of course i always did my speed drills then to finish it off 15 rounds of sparing. But in now days not fighters spar 15 rounds. most important,Do what you have to do. Train dont half ass off in gym. these are just basic things. Mind if i ask you a few things? What weight are you fighting at? just wondering its always nice to give younger fighters/New fighters advice. Good luck with you're fight. let us know how it went.

Also, I sprained my wrist awhile ago and after i work for awhile it'll start bugging me.

I've been stretching it out and its been feeling a little better but it seems to be taking a long time to get well. Should I use some weight with it??

Rockin...You said to where heavy clothing when working out....will that only cut water weight through sweating or will that aid in fat burning?

It seems to me that it would. My only theory being all of the fat people that I see sitting in saunas. A skinny person does not need to burn fat so they arent in there. I know that this is only a far fetched hypotosis, but it is just that.....Rockin' :)

just water weight will come off if your skinny. this wrestler at my school went in the sauna every day and he only weighed 103. but if your fat it might help

I'm new to this site but a long time friend of FXXI and its true he's startin' to get freakin ripped.

I mean his fists are like bricks anyway so I think I'll start training as hard as he does.

my first fight is in a week and its against a guy who has a good twenty or thirty pounds on me.

any advice

Just a quick update

I've kept a pretty good diet lately and I have been working out everyday(not too intensely) and I run 4 miles everyday

I've lost about 8.5 pounds in fat not water weight and I feel faster and i can see a difference

thanks for all the help.

I went and watched the guy fight last weekend and he likes to charge in a lot.

What would be a good strategy against that type of fighter

I think i have a little reach on him too.

If you have reach, work behind your jab see what he has to offer then counterpunch his ass. I'd catch that ****er with an uppercut when he comes in.

The charging type guys will be easy pickings if you have lateral movement and a good jab. If its your first fight then he must be new as well if your matched to throw with him therefore he will most likely have limited head movement. The important thing to remember against those guys is to get off quick and get off often. Stop him in his tracks and take a side. Meaning, land a shot or slip a shot, move to either his left or right and start digging. These guys can be tenacious and unforgiving but dont let it bother you. I am sure that you have trained well for this and are conditioned. The one cardnial sin that you dont want to break on these guys is never back up in a straight line. Take a step or two backwards and then take a side and start diggin'. Best of luck to you man, doing this is something that many men dream of doing but you are going in to do it soon. I commend you on your cahones' and go get 'em man, make us here at boxing scene proud.........Rockin' :boxing:
