Training

Hey, I'm currently having vacation for 8 weeks, and I want to start with kickboxing. I've had about 5 lessons and now I can't train anymore for the whole vacation because they aren't teaching now. I really want to do something about my condition, so could someone advice me on increasing it?
Also, I'm very motivated and I'm actually shadowboxing most of the time when Im alone, simply because I love to do it. But even though I am so motivated Im always feeling tired, Could this be because Im not doing any sports at the moment and Im just lazy?

Thanks alot ^^

There are many reasons you are feeling tired. The main one by far is how you fuel your body. Food is sooooooo important in any kind of exercise regime, not just kickboxing training. Eat at regular intervals through out the day. Every 2-3 hours is a good parameter. Make sure you are eating the right types of food and at the right times too. Always eat 5-10 mins after your training because this is when the body will soak up every little bit of nutrition you feed it. Protein after training and carbs before is also a good parameter.

Can't be bothered to go into too much detail. Do a bit of research. Do a google search or search this sub-forum as it has alot of helpful advise from MMA fighters and people who train regulary.

Yes I do eat pretty much every 2-3 hours and I've looked up information about it. I mostly eat bread with all kinds of meat, noodles, pasta, and Yoghurt. I mostly drink water and milk. Is this good?

Add LOTS of fruit and veg to that list and your on your way. If you still feel tired after this then your body might just be getting used to the transistion of training. What kind of tirdness do you experience? Is it muscular? Do you feel sleepy? Any pains or anything? Proper warm ups and warm downs are also essential.

Great, I will do that, Well I feel very sleepy and like I can't do anything, sometimes I'm just looking at 1 point for like 10 seconds because I feel too tired to look away, It might sounds like I'm exaggerating but it's true. Thanks for replying btw.

No probs. I know what you mean about staring at something. That is probably due to you not getting enough sleep which I neglected to say before. Sleep is also very very important. So important i typed very twice. Make sure you have regular sleeping patter and you are getting at LEAST 8 hours a night. Think I've covered most things. If someone else wants to contribute with something I may I've missed out then please oblige.

BTW, you better become a decent memeber of this forum now I've used up my own time helping you! Alot of people wont on here because it was your first post.

You may be over training. If you do a full workout and then try to shadow box throughout the day you may not be allowing your muscles to heal proper. When they are overworked they go on strike and your body gets tired. train harder in your scheduled workouts and then take the time to rest after words.
