Feedback on my 2 month cardio plan, please?
Alright, here's the deal.
During my 4 years in high school, I was lifting and in athletics. So, I was eating a lot and what not. Also had pretty decent cardio. I was fairly cut, but was no body builder (I worked a lot more on strength than tone.)
After I finished footbal my Sr. year, I started training BJJ and Judo. Did a little kickboxing, too. During football this year, I was about 190 LBS. By January, I weighed about 175-178.
But, I haven't trained for almost a month and a have (been sick and the wheather in Iowa is rediculous.) I've put on a pretty good trophy gut (I can almost hold food on it.)
So, I've been doing something about it.
DIET: I haven't really been trying to follow a strict diet. I know a decent amount about nutrition, but I don't count calories and such. I just try and pick the better foods to eat.
Alright, now this is the plan I've thought up.
Week 1-2 is simple. Trying to get me back into shape. All I'm doing is running 1 1/2 mile a day (almost died the first time.)
I'm still doing the 1 1/2 mile run every other day. However, I'm going to throw in rope skipping afterwards. I plan on doing 3X5 minute rounds (1 minute in between.)
Still doing the 1 1/2 mile run every other day and doing the 3X5 minute rounds of skipping. However, I'm now adding 3X5 minute rounds of shadow boxing w/ sprawls (1 minute in bewteen. I was thinking of alternating. 1 round of shadow boxing, rest, then 1 round of skipping.)
Going to double my run to 3 miles. Still doing to do the 3X5 minute rounds of skipping and boxing/sprawl drill.
In about 2 months, school is going to be close to over. After I graduate, I wanna start training again 5 or 6 days a week. If you have time, I would love and positive or negative feedback and/or advice. Thanks for taking the time to read!
[EDIT] It was also suggested that I throw some sprints into the mix, which is a good idea. I was also thinking about doing some body weight exercises, like pushups, squats, ect.
