you can definitely make it. i'm in college and at the start of second semester (late january) last year i weighed 162. by the end of the semester (mid-may) i got up to 174. so i got close to the gain you're looking for. i lifted 5 days a week and just made sure i ate a sh*t ton of food. but yeah man...


you can do anything you put your mind to.

how tall are you by the way?

i suppose you mean when im fighting?

well...yea, pretty much hahaha. i make up for being a bit smaller by pushing the pace relentlessly.

doesnt matter how much bigger you are then me, i will push and push until i get you to the ground and, most of the time, choke you.

i feel like my cardio is good enough to keep up a pretty good pace for 3 rnds, but the longest ive gone is about half way through the second...so im not really positive.

if there's a chink i guess its that i probably would gas in the last rnd from pushing the pace so hard in the first two.

i train bjj w/ jeff joslin 4 months outta the year, so yea, my bjj would be my strong point. i do train quite a bit on my feet. im not as technical as id like to be, but once again, i keep a very hectic pace so i do catch guys fairly often with some heavy shots.

I'm 180 and will be cutting down to 155. =P

But it's fairly easy to bulk up. Lift and eat a lot. But, make sure you're eating healthy and continue your cardio training.
