Hey guys hows it going, im pretty new to boxing, im 19, 5-7 185 , i just started training and was told they want me to get down to 140 before i can fight, can someone give me a realistic time frame this can be achieved in? i have a workout room in my complex that has bikes and tredmills and a few machine weights, if i hitup this place everyday how fast could i drop this weight and what machines should i use. thanks

Why not a different weight class?
I wouldn't think it would be healthy to lose that much in any amount of time.

you could fight right now, i have to lose the weight because right now if i got in the ring i would be fighting Cruiserweights haha he wants me to get down to Welterweight size, 186 is just too damn heavy for a 5-7 guy

Dude 45 lbs is going to take a while. I recommend just forgetting about fighting until you drop some. If you can drop 45 lbs in two months I would be amazed. Just work hard and in time it will come off. Working out hard will increase your metabolisim and the weight will come off easier later down the road.........Rockin'

Remember Joe Frazier only started boxing so that he could lose some weight. He was a real fat ass. Good luck man!

I didn't say you were. I just meant that boxing is the best weight loss program out there, and it is amazing how much you can lose just hitting a heavy bag in your basement and running and sparring.

I am 5 11, and I can get down to 160 when I fight, but usually about 180-5, when I am not doing anything.

Just work on your boxing skillz. Thats all that really matters in the ametuers. That and conditiong. IF you really get competitive then just go on a low-calorie diet. Drink V8 and eat hard boiled eggs, and stop lifting. You can easy lose 10-20 pounds that way.

If you dont know how to properly throw a punch with leverage and your weight behind it, your overall strength means nothing.............Rokcin'

my friend lost 12 pounds by sitting in a sauna in his winter equiptment. but i heard somewhere (cannot remeber) that it takes mass away from your muscle tissue acctually hurting you more than helping. i had to cut for wrestling and lost 5 kg in 5 days, its not much compared to 70lbs in 3 months but i was pleased with the results, i went down from a 58 to a 49. sadly i am currently sitting at 55 :(. if anyone could confirm my muscle tissue reducing theory id be grateful.

thats a good theory because your body is 70% water so that could make some sense i guess

Worry about the weight loss first, then worry about the fighting. I was 5'4 and 210 lbs. at 14, and by 15 I was 5'6 and 125 lbs. It's easier to lose the weight when you have a base of muscles under the fat so you can actually do the exercises. I suggest cutting down on non-essential foods like cookies and ****, eat healthier, work out regularly, and do some jogging. You will lose the weight if you show will power in maybe 4-5 months.

alright thanks for your input. i currently run for half an hour twice a day, in the morning and after school also on the treadmill for 15 min. during school with 3 and sometimes 5 pound wieghts then 20 without weight. then i lift for an hour and do situps, dips, pushups and whatnot at home. i am hoping the results will be worth the work. i am going to look into a boxing club or trainer because it looks fun and in my wellness class i kicked some ass 50 pounds heavier than me.
