I've been reading articles and threads on the site for a couple of weeks now. I just joined and wanted to say hello and also what a great site this is. Now I'd like to ask for any help or advice that any of you may have.
I'm 25yo, 5'11", 36" waist, weigh 200lbs. I have a endomorph body type, so it's hard to lose weight. I recently started to train in Muay Thai/Boxing about a month ago, but I only started going on a healthy diet about two weeks ago.
My Current Eating Habit for the week*:
Breakfast - I eat 2-3 slices of whole grain bread, sometimes with natural peanut butter. On weekends I'll make an egg sandwich.
Lunch - Small serving of pasta salad w/broccoli, cauliflower, red peppers, chicken breast pieces, olive oil, and some fat free Italian dressing. Sometimes I'll have chicken breast with brown rice and veggies.
Dinner - A meat product, generally chicken breast, sometimes fish, or lean steak once a week. Always served with vegetables, and either brown rice or the pasta salad.
- Sat nights I usually go out to a restaurant with friends, so I'll have fattier foods. There's also alcohol involved.
My Current Exercise Routine:
M & Tu - Just work and school.
W & Th & F - Train 1-2 hours a day, then I lift weights. I also runa mile, but this week I'm starting a new running program found on this site. Has to do with jogging, then sprinting and also 400m sprints. (Sorry, I don't have the link).
W & F - 3 sets with 5-7 reps(bench press, bicep curls, situps, close grip bench press, butterflies, and squats).
Sat - I'll play basketball or spar/mitt work with my friend.
Sun - Usually no exercise. Sometimes I'll do some pushups and situps/leg lifts.
I'd like to fight competitivly in the future, so my goal is to drop weight while gaining strength. I'd like to drop back down to around 150lbs and also back to a 32-33" waist. I'd like to be lean with muscle definition, but not huge.
Do you have have any suggestions or advice for my routine?
Thanks in advance.
