Just work hard in the gym, and you'll see the results.
A good diet is very important, remember, 6-packs are made in the kitchen, not the gym.

Good luck, I'm trying to drop a bit of weight myself. Joining an MMA gym soon, I'm looking at Wand Fight Team in Vegas :)

Appreciate that homie, I just gotta get mentally prepared to eat right and shed the pounds. Working out doing MMA and Boxing is fun to me, so going to the gym is no problem. Thanks for all the advice, check out my video and tell me what you think of my punches and combos.

Your punches are thrown pretty nicely... nice snap on your jab only thing i can comment on is try to bring your left hand back to your face after everytime you throw it. You kind of drop it after you, throw your hooks and jabs. Also try getting lower, not too low cuz you seem tall so you have that nice hieght advantage. So get a little lower and practice working the body more. But other than that like mexicanmauler said it takes hard work and time. Keep going to the gym, boxing is one of the best workouts in the world. Keep it up and even if you get discouraged at times or tired, just keep going. Dont think about the distance think about the destination.

It's long, but make sure you read it. You're young, there's a dude at my gym who's 32 and 240lbs and 7-1 amateur, started boxing 3 years ago and weighed more than you when he started.

honestly, dont worry about competing and sh1t right now. Get in shape. You're 21 and you recognize your problems, thats a good start

Stick to protein such as chicken, fish, turkey, eggs, and very lean beef along with salads, steamed veggies, and some fruit. Take a multivitamin pill like Centrum daily. Slowly increase your running speed and distance. Increase the tempo of your workouts with less and less time inbetweeen whatever you do. Avoid sugar in all forms. If you cheat, you only cheat yourself.

good advice, but duke shouldn't really be running if he's 290lbs, great way to **** up his knees...cardio right now is more counterproductive than anything

main thing is diet, you'll lose an easy 50+ lbs of FAT from diet alone...depending on your will, calorie deficit and if you use keto this can be within as little as a few months

Thanks Akhi and Barfly, I'm gonna start straightening my life up and get healthy and eat right. I did a whole week of all salads, hardly any dressing and bits of grilled chicken. I released SO MANY bad toxins from my body that week and felt AWESOME in the fighting gym. I'm gonna cut out ALL sugars, but fruits have natural sugars so I'll just up my vegetable intake and lower my fruit intake. I'm sick of getting tired early when I spar in Boxing, Muay Thai, and Kickboxing, I wanna be able to hang with the smaller more in shape fellas in my gym. I can do this, God is gonna aid me and I'm gonna make the effort....:boxing:

I saved the Guide to Ketosis on my phone and I'll be following this to a T. I've seen people in my gym who are in their 40's and were heavy as me. This one guy was almost 300lbs and in a few months from Boxing and Kickboxing and a good diet, he's now down to 267lbs and counting, plus he's in his 40's! I'm 21 and determined to NOT let being fat be the DEATH of me. I'm NOT gonna die from this, I'm in the gym all the time it's just that I need to cut out the bad eating habits....Thanks for all the support from those who are helping me. I REALLY appreciate it.

technique is great mate, you punch well. make sure you keep your hands up after you throw a punch, otherwise you'll find yourself kissing the floor.

I suggest you to swim as much as you can, it'll do your cardio, and it really tires you well.

Don't forget; there's is nothing you can't do if you want to.

Well of course there are things, but what you want to do now is reachable goal. Just make sure you don't quit, and work very very hard.


And keep writing your progress!!!

Good luck with your brand new life...

The bagwork looked pretty solid. The good thing about being overweight is that the weight will fly off if you can stick to doing 4-5 days/week worth of cardio. I would start with swimming, stationary bike, or whatever you feel you can do for 30+ minutes and do that. The weight should fly off if you also stick to a nice diet.

Drink lots of water, eat lots of protein, and stay away from carbonated drinks, alcohol, sweets, chocolate, fried foods.

pfff... bs


TS: I would advice you to just learn some basic nutrition science.
Losing weight is in theory VERY simple. You just have to stick with it.

Do not trust the myths that you need to eat x amount of times per day, or no carbs after 6pm etc. It's mostly about calories in and calories out.

Here is a good articles to start you out.
http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/fat-loss/all-diets-work-the-importance-of-calories.html

Also since you mentioned MMA, i guess you are familiar with sherdog. They have a very decent FAQ that might benefit you.
http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f15/d-s-faq-useful-threads-health-weight-loss-gain-more-read-before-posting-718093/

I'll also send you some e-points that you can use to bet or whatever on this site with other boxingfans.
It's trivial but can be fun.

Other than that, I'd just like to wish you good luck. Just stick with it, thats the only important thing to success.

really take this post to heart. DO NOT put too much stress on your joints. For cardio do something like biking or swimming until you've dropped 50+ lbs and gotten your body used to it. If you go running now you are almost certain to injure yourself.

And yes, diet is 90%. You need to work out a ****load just to burn off one small sandwich for example.
Do some boxing, go for walks, ride a bike or swim. But thats just a small bonus and to get healthier. The weight will mostly drop because of you limiting your calories.

:boxing:GREATLY APPRECIATE ALL THE ADVICE AND SUPPORT!!! I'm super motivated, today is stand-up only in the gym. We'll be doing Boxing, Kickboxing, and Muay Thai..The smaller fellas in the gym tell me I have fast hands to be as big as I am. People expect me to just throw power punches cause I'm fat and wanna show off lol. I'm the complete opposite, I'm fat and I only wanna use speed and technique because being fat and trying to throw hard will equal slower punches and me getting hit more. I LOVE learning technique, and when I start shedding this nasty fat, I'll be a lot better off health wise and skill wise.

You all are keeping me going, all this advice has me pumped to get fit and SNATCH my HEALTH back from the hands of DEATH slowly pulling me to an early grave...:boxing:

c/s the sh1t harry said about caloric intake...even on keto you won't lose weight unless your expending more calories than you consume.

Use a BMR calculator to find out how many calories you're body uses just to function, from there cut off whatever you feel comfortable with (nothing extreme, but if you want to lose weight fast 500+ is good)

a lot of people use a clean diet as a excuse to eat alot and then get surprised when they're not dropping weight

since you're a MMA fan (im not) but I saw this on sherdog today:

I want to be fit to where my stomach no longer hangs, my fat isn't pressing against my lungs and ribcage, so I'll have more stamina and start being more competitive in the Boxing/MMA gym. My legs are WAY stronger than any part of my body because I carry so much fat up top. Being a fatass is killing me, I love to be active and spar a lot, grapple a lot, and have a good time for the love of the sweet science. I finish a WHOLE gallon of water in a 2 hour Boxing class cause I sweat so much. So drinking water is easy for me, forget sodas, and Kool-aid, and luckily my doctor says I don't have high blood pressure or anything like that. So it's time NOW to cut back HUGE and get my mentality in HEALTH MODE...I AM NOT GONNA LET THIS WEIGHT PUT ME SIX FEET DEEP!!! F U C K THAT! God be with me, and lead me down the health path....Ant is makin a change!

Most fat people just blame everyone but themselves, and see themselves as victims. You don't, i respect that.

Well in your case it's going to be hard to be in really good shape. your skin stretched, body used to certain amount of calories that u ate every day etc.

I say don't try wayy to hard, because even a decent work out for an overweight person is always a hit to your heart. in your case, you do need to create yourself a diet + nice trainings will do it for you. dont expect 6 packs, i'll be glad if you can make it to 240. and mate I don't hate or critisize you, I wrote it as it is and you took it, which is good to hear.

You don't, i respect that.Preciate that Harry...I could NEVER blame someone else for somethin I've done to myself over these past few years. It's ME who decides to buy some garbage to feed myself. It's ME who instead of going for a walk I lay down and be lazy. It's ME who drives MY car that I paid for to drive MYself and buy whatever sorry a s s food that I bought. I have NO ONE to blame but myself because I'm a grown a s s man accepting that I'm unhealthy and ready to fix that. Also, I'm no slouch when it comes to Boxing and sparring and what not. I have some of the best technique in my gym, my coach and the other fighters tell me.

I just want the body to compliment what little skills I do have. I'm not looking for a ripped up, ab filled body with riblets. I just wanna remove this hanging stomach, remove these b i t c h a s s man-breasts and tone myself up.

I've been going to a boxing gym for about 1 3/4 years and I'm seeing some good results lately. The best thing to do is to get into a good routine where you're going to the gym 3-4 times a week (if life permits) and doing light exercise on your days off. On gym days do a variety of boxer exercises/training techniques like the heavy bag, double end and speed bags, skipping rope, light weight lifting, running in place and all the other exercises....

You're not gonna lose all the weight in week so you have to stick with it and work hard when you're in the gym and limit the junk food. For me, I noticed that if I eating junk food for breakfest and lunch then my gym workouts all that much tougher. So I've been cutting down on the potatoe chips, fried food, etc. so that I won't struggle with my workouts.

Just a friendly tip. Don't go overboard. 1077 calories is way too little, especially if you're also working out.

Even if you go with 2000 cals, you'd lose like 3-5lbs at your size, every week.
You don't wanna burn yourself out. Slow and steady is the key.

You drop your right hand before you throw it. It has an anti-ark to it. As soon as I see it drop a left hook would land easily before you even get to throw the right. The left hook should get the side of the bag not the front. Do not practice right hooks on a bag like that. Try out some body shots too but you must pivot a lot more into the hooks they will be a lot faster bro.

Not much I can add about the diet.

I was quite impressed with your bag work, nice snappy punches which were fast and those straight punches were technically excellent.

Only thing I would recommend is not throwing them just from the shoulder, twist your hips and plant your feet when doing so, this should create a lot more power.

Good Luck, be sure to hit us up with updates of how your getting on.

i've been there buddy, just work at it, stay disciplined, stay motivated. your style kind of reminds me of riddick bowe by the way, he's one of my favorites of all time.

when you're tired and don't feel like it in the morning and feel like sagging.... get your ass up and go to the gym, when you start that workout you'll feel better. remember every little step you take towards losing weight is a step.. and remember every step in the other direction is exactly that..

have a routine, drink a lot of water, do something active everyday, no matter how hard it feels and do spend a little time for yourself to be lazy. all work and no play...

(don't forget to stretch and all by the way, when you're heavy, there's a lot of pressure on the muscles, easy to get injured)

to keep motivated, find music, anything that pumps you up. i'll send you some of my stuff.

whenever you don't feel like it.. pick one of those things that pump you up and get going to the gym, to the pool, to do your roadwork..

Good advice from all. Best of luck with it mate. Diet and dedication is the key. I have lost nearly 80 pounds over the last few years and it all started with taking a serious look at my diet. As others have said though, don't go absolutely mental with cutting the calories. I read in an above post that you ate just over 1,000 in a day? You need more than that. Restricting your diet to that extent will increase the risk of total default.

I started my Journey of weight loss in April with lap-band surgery(which I wish I never did) and so far I've lost 60lbs(284lbs now). The only advice I can give you is to not eat to little and don't over train yourself. I too love working out and I found myself to be eating like 1200cals a day, in addition to running in the morning and doing a full boxing workout at night (jump rope3rds, 5rds heavy bag, 3-4rds shadowboxing, pad work,abs, dips, body-weight squats, and push ups). After about 3days of that I would be so drained. So just make sure you don't deprive yourself of cals because your body will need it for fuel. Other than that keep up the good work.

p.s.Your looking good on the heavy bag........ This is my heavybag work about 2yrs ago before I ballooned up to 342. In the vid I'm about the same weight as I am right now.

You gotta eat clean man, you're already in the gym doing your thing, all it takes is eating healthy.. Whole foods man, I know it sucks. I was in the same boat as you at your age, the craving for a big mac with extra sauce never goes away haha, but once you start losing those pounds it will be easier and easier to keep away from it

like I said you're already in the gym, just take that extra step and change up what you're eating

Second video of me hitting the heavybag...I threw 2 kicks on the bag as well, 1st kick sucked, 2nd kick had better technique (pause in between the kick to see the technique)...

very nice dude, real good technique. try to keep active, move your head and upper body while not punching and go to the body too.

and for kicking: remember to turn the kick in on the ball of your foot and push your hips into it.

doing great bro, for real.

Preciate that homie! ;-) Pause the video right before my shin lands on the bag on the second kick, I turned my hips over with more rotation, but when after the kick lands it looks weird when I return back to my stance. Thanks for the tips, I'll be using the advice and making more combo videos. :boxing:

Good stuff man! I'm trying to drop some pounds myself. Just watch what you eat, and stay consistent with your exercises man. CONSISTENCY! You seem to be pretty good as of right now, so just stick to it and the pounds will come off. Just stay consistent, cautious, and patient.

Im not sure if it's been said.

but add weights to your training to burn fat quick..


do squats, dead lifts, bench press. heavy weight, 3 sets.. 3-5 reps.

squats and deadlifts burn hella calories. and get your foundation strong

well don't need to go to the gym to stay active, road work, pushups at home, jump rope outside, even just jumping jacks can be killing. stay active!
