Hi all, First post here so
Apologies if this goes on a bit.
Firstly, I'm 27 and live in the UK. Been training in Muay Thai / Kickboxing for about 9 months. Also take Kali, and basic Jiu Jitsu classes as part of my training.
I'm after some advice for general weight loss and conditioning really. I'm 6' 3" and When I started training I was 16 stone (224 very fat pounds). I didn't really see a weight loss gain.
I used to be around the 180lb mark a few years ago, however a sports injury left me out of action for 6 months, and the weight piled on. When I was ok to compete again I was unfit and I took that as my queue to knock things on the head.
As I touched on earlier, I've been training in K-Boxing now for 9 months, found I've really taken to it. The bug's bitten and evenually I'd like to compete at some level - so I've upped the training and through a combination of sensible eating (lots of fresh fruit and veg) and cutting the crap out of my diet (no crisps / coke / chocolate) about 2 months ago I've dropped to 206. Loss hasn't been been quick, however that's intentional as too much too soon is bad for you!
To give an overview of my regime at the moment it is:
Monday - Training (2-3 hours)
Tuesday - Run / Gym
Weds - Run / Gym
Thursday - Training (1.5-2hours)
Fri-Sun - R&R (poss training Sunday PM)
Ideally I'd like to get down to the 185 bracket - any tips for how I can get down to that, whilst still retaining strength and upping CV capability?
