Just some questions of mine

I was 5"11 and 280lbs. Really obese.
but then, i wanted to get into MMA and started working out alot so now I'm 5"11 215lbs and there is a big difference in the way I look.I lost the weight because I was doing lots of exercise and dieting.
Now recently (because I wanna make it in professional MMA) exercise is really the only thing I do in my free time.
I try to exercise as much as possible.Which means , i hang out with friends and go out a whole lot less now. and my parents are getting worried that I'm taking it too serious.
Im 14 years old and I really wanna dedicate myself to this sport because I love it too much. but i have no one with experience giving my advice sso questions always pop-up in my head un-answered.
i've been hearing that what i do is really unhealthy(the over exercising).

Please, if any of you had careers in MMA , tell how hard and often you had to work out , and if giving the workout session 110% everytime is good or bad for you.
also, is it very important that i still stay on a diet or can i start cheating now that I'm much lighter?

Also, give me a list of exercises I can do (without a gym)that will help me achieve my goals.

All answers appreciated,

Thanks,
P.S, No i am not yet taking MMA classes so , i have not officially started.

Joining the wrestling team if your school has one would be a great start. Muay thai would also be a good art to practice. Good luck

Over excercise isn't a problem if you get good sleep and eat right.

Keep extremely hydrated by drinking a lot of water and give your body the right food and nutrition it needs. At 14 years old many worry about stunted growth but your 5'11 so thats your call.

You don't ALWAYS need to go 110%, you can do technique sessions but since your not training yet obv thats not an option.

You could drop some of the weight training(if you are) and get into JJ classes, I thought I was in great shape til I had a class followed by muay thai haha.

Think. It Ain't Illegal Yet

I had a very minor league and very short MMA career (3 years), and I worked as a personal trainer for six.

What I would tell you is this. Being as that you are only 14, focus mostly on carido. Run, swim, and bike as much as you can. Don't stop lifting weights, but stay away from power lifting until you are at least 16. Stick to low weight high reps, it's better for you in every aspect of physical health, and in the fight game.

As far as getting into MMA. At 5'11, and 215 you're on you are most likely going to become larger in stature over the next few years. If you were that large at one point, chances are you're going to develope into a Pahlharres (spelling ) type of build... as young as you are, and at that height. My advice would be this... strive to lose more weight and target the 170 pould weight class... as you get older you'll probably be forced into the 185 class simply based on body mass.

Now, I say all this without seeing you, and knowing a propper body mass index, but my guess is, at that age you've probably still got a lot of body fat you can lose and turn into lean muscle.

That's the best I got for you for now. Good luck, and stay on this forum. This is a rare forum that isn't just built on keyboard warriors... people around here know what they are talking about.

You probably have a better chance at the personal trainer job. Yeah, being that young is the time to build cardio. Go that route!

What? Don't tell the kid what to do in his life. He can choose whichever carrer path he wants.

That is true. I was just throwing him a suggestion. I'd love to be a personal trainer!
