Just Starting (Kind Of)

Okay I’ve been boxing since I was 15 (now nearly 20). I’ve never had the frame for it (short and stockier then most of my opponents). Had some minor successes but being a realist know it will never lead to anything major. I have one year left at my job (work in a gym) before going to join the police force. Now I want to spend my last year playing footy (rugby league) with the boy’s from home (live in a country town so bush footy, not too high quality. Though I have to perform my best in anything I do) So pre-season I want to get bigger, whils’t maintaining my cardiovascular fitness.

I was thinking Defranco’s Skinny Bastards with some of Ross Enamait’s conditioning samples.
