(EDITED: I no longer desire to box. Instead, I retitled this thread as “Heavy Squats and Great Judo” since I’m switching to Judo as my art. This decision was made on November 14, 2020.)
Bapoleon here! Muwahahah!
I wanted to be a great powerlifter when I was a teen, a great weightlifter when I was almost twenty. Years later, I’m now less than a month from hitting 29 and all I want is the prospect of competing in amateur boxing. But I still haven’t abandoned my squatting endeavors.
Really, I just want my upper-body to look sexy for the ladies, but leg strength is nonnegotiable. I gotta squat (relatively) big weights while also having the endurance to last for rounds in a good boxing match. That’s my aim at this point in my life. And boy do I need to maintain a healthy diet for that as well.
Historically, these were my best lifts at certain points in my life at certain bodyweight. I am five feet six inches tall…
Bench press: 275 pounds (Bodyweight 200, age 17)
Deadlift: 455 pounds (Bodyweight 200, age 17)
Clean + Jerk: 205 pounds (Bodyweight 190 pounds, age 19)
Olympic Squat: 405 pounds (Bodyweight 230 pounds, age 25)
I also do cardio now. I don’t know if all stairmaster machines have same measurements but… I can do a number 4 intensity on my gym’s stairmaster for 16 minutes and 20 seconds tops, on a good day. I literally only started there at SIX minutes tops, so I’m very happy for the end result of that!
Nearby boxing gym ain’t open yet due to COVID-19. That may be a blessing because it gives me time to play video games and do my personal studies. School will start soon so that’s another time consumer… Lots of things going on in my life. I pray to God to help me power-through these assorted daily tasks…
And as much as I’m very ashamed to admit it, I’m a complete, unhealthy fat man, weighing at a whopping 250 pounds. I gotta fix my diet man… Lots of clean eating and restriction. And I’m only 5’6. Scary, I know. But at least my resting heart rate is pretty good probably due to my rigorous cardio sessions consistently.
Please wish me luck on my FAT LOSS goals. I need it…
Videos will be uploaded soon. Thanks for the read.
And my God, please NEVER HOLD BACK ON YOUR DIET ADVICE. Please, please, please!
