Alright guys, looking to get carded in the new year and just wanted to get your thoughts on my regime. I've been reading these boards for a while and really admire some of the knowledge on here so I thought maybe some of the amateur guys could help us out.

Bearing in mind that I'm a notch under 6"3 and come in at around 12 Stone 6 at the moment, what would be necessary to get closer to my ideal fighting weight which is actually a stone less (middleweight).

Boxing (Days one, two and three)

Stretch
Skipping x3
Bags x6 (with a focus on floor to ceiling balls)
Shadow x3
Gym Circuit (usual stuff)
Own Circuit (stuff with med ball, front raises etc)
Also a personal session one day a week with a Pro, pad work/core strength etc.

Cardio/weights (Days, four, five and six)

Stretch
Abs 60 x3 (crunch type ones)
Med Ball drops
Running 30 mins with 3 intense uphill sprints
Rowing 15 mins
Shrugs 12x3
Tricep pull ups 12x3
Legs 36 x 6 (leg press, calf press, quads, adductors, abductors and hamstrings)
Swimming approx 30 mins with underwater lengths
Also sixth day seen as an all body workout (shoulders, chest, back etc.)

I also take the following supplements;

Animal packs and SNAC'S Vitaylze at breakfast (only on days I know I will need them, i.e. the one on one sessions.

Vitamin A-Z

Creatine an hour before and after training

CNP's Pro recover, after harder workouts.

That looks like a pretty good training schedule. But losing weight is quite simple, burn more calories than you eat during a day. Knowing how many calories you burn is pretty hard but you can get a pretty good approximation.

Knowing how many calories you eat is much easier. So you fix yourself a limit and make sure you work out hard and don't cheat on your caloric intake and you will lose weight.


Personally i'm a heavyweight. I injured myself last winter and couldn't train much, i eventually got fed up with not being able to train and started smoking again, eating whatever i wanted.

No need to say i gained some weight, i went up to 280-290 pounds from 230-235 in about 5 months.

At the beginning of the summer my injury was gone and was shocked when i weighted myself and realized i gained all that weight.


I started training again, 6 days a week and i limited my calories to 1600-1800 a day, which is extremely small for a guy my size. But i wanted to lose the weight before going back to the gym in fall. I did, by the end of august i was at 240 and i started in june, so i lost around 50 pounds in 3 months.


Now i have been keeping around 230-235 and i eat normally again, which is about 2200-2600 calories a day.
