Well everyone, I have decided to give Boxing a try. We meet up Mon,Tue, and thurs. I'm thinking I will weight train on my off nights from boxing. The instructor said that when I was ready and he thought I was ready I could begin to spar. Wich I am still hesistant at the idea, but still really interested in it.
A question that I have for anyone that could help me. What should I do for cardio? To drop weight. I'm 5'8 and currently weighing 215lbs. I have finally worked my way up to running a mile with out stopping. Have yet to time myself, wich I do plan on doing. The other thing with this, is because I am dieting I am not fully sure as to what to do with my weight training routine. Wether or not increasing my cardio is going to affect my weight training.
I currently train 3 days a week. I do 5 sets of 5 on all lifts with a 3-0-1 tempo. I have the lifts split up into Upper body/back day. Leg day and Arms,calves,shoulders and abs for the other day. I currently run a mile every other day and am going to start sprinting here shortly.
As for my how my diet is going. I eat 5-6 meals a day every 3-4 hours. I consume anywhere from 300-500 calories per meal depending on if its a weight training day, early morning meal or post work out meal. So, I dont want to get to where my muscles aren't producing anymore mass to them. My over all goal at this time is to get as lean as possible,while mainting muscle. By upping my cardio, how much more or less or what different for calories should I consume through out the day, wether it be on weight training, or boxing day?
I know this is all kinda rushed and not all in full detail, but I am in a hurry. Hope to hear some advice from you all. Thanks
