Hey, I did nothing but eat and lift weights and I went as high as 170, im 162 right now, but I need to cut the damn Weight, I want to be at 140-150 by next month and a half, So I can get back to my regular boxing training!
Any ideas diets and exsercises I can do, to get the job done???
Im 5'9'' and about 162.
My last fight was at 125 like a year and a half ago. Amateur fight ofcourse!!

Losing weight is mostly diet, you have to burn off what you're putting in.
When I needed to cut, I'd restrict myself to only a handful of foods not counting protein and supplements.. I ate small meals all day, consisting only of chicken breast, tuna, oatmeal, bananas, milk and water. I'm a big boy and I've always had a huge appetite, so when I was hungry I'd just chow down on a head of lettuce and be good.
If you are disciplined it's easy to cut.

I am a qualified P.T. from Australia. What I do for my clients if they want to lean up but remain powerful is just compound excersized. And go back to basics. Squats holding weight plated, jump squats, pushup claps, etc. Work some plyometrics into there as well once you get the basics down to improve speed and power.

I said the same thing in another thread, if you're training for boxing correctly and intensely, cutting carbs will make you drop weight fast, though I dont recommend it
