i havnt posted for a while as i have gone from baseball, lifting very regularly to boxing.
i started boxing 5 months ago, at 87kg probably around 15-17%bf.
after training for 2months 3x/week of intense boxing i dropped to 80kg.
i then went into “amateur boxing” (i want to compete) and have been training for 3 months 5-6x/week - 1hr per session. last week i started to run after training (run average pace for 5-6km in half an hour on monday and friday, on wednesday i do HIIT on the bike). i train my abs after each session.
oh and my target weight is 75kg (super middle), and turn 20yo soon.
My diet is good (so i think, please correct me if im wrong).
an average week for diet would be:
m1 - 4 weetbix with lite milk
m2 - 1 serve of chicken or steak, 1 serve of potato salad
m3 - 1 serve of chicken or steak, 1 serve of garden salad
m4 - (Pre training) Protein shake with lite milk
m5 - (post training) Protein shake with lite milk + 1 bananna
m6 - serve of chicken or steak with a serve of salad
m7 - 2 Multi V’s, 2 Vitamin c tabs
i dont know what bf% i am but i am 181cm, 79-80kg, i can see the top 2 abs, and am begining to see the 2nd set. I cant see all of my abs clearly, and they dont ripple/bulge.
My questions are → should i begin to lift (im not new to weights, but have stopped for 5months)??
Why aren’t i getting ripped, what am i doing wrong??
appreciate all and any help!
