I recomend protein shakes...keep working out the way you do just drink protein shakes before bed, in the morning and during work outs.

I get Mammoth InterACTIVE brand. It's Canadian so I pay less tax on it, plus its generaly cheap...I bet the other brands are better but this one is nice and cheap. Since I can get 4 kilos for 50$.

Just google "protein powder" and read some reviews, and consider the price.

if you want to gain some weight try a protein powder with more carbs in it. because if your training hard, as you would be, n only taking protein shakes, your body will be looking for carbs for longterm n shortterm energy, so if you dont have enuf carbs in your diet, it will start eating away at your muscles. i would prob recommend a powder with maybe 60-70% protein, n 30-40% carbs.

goodluck, and if you need extra advice you should ask your trainer, because he knows what your workout schedule is, so he could base his decision on all that ****.

Do it the toney way - burger king.

It's the easiest form of weight training ;)

Why would you wanto gain weight, especially force yourself to gain, that is a bad idea in boxing. Also, you say you want to get into the supermiddle (168),...are you in the pros? If you weight 158 in the amatuers you should be fighting in the < or = 165 weight class.

Choose a weight that you are comfortable with, not one that you have to force yourself into.
