Default Fighting Saturday

I'm fighting this Saturday, and it's my first fight at 141. I feel good at this weight, and I feel like my power's stayed with me despite losing some 20 lbs. over the past few months. Not to mention the kind of shape I've gotten in, and how much sharper and quicker I've become.

I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Here's a stomach pic of me at about 150...little more ripped now. BF was at 8% even at last check. And yes, I do need a tan.

Small meals, spread out, nothing insane. Consisting mostly of chicken breasts, lean beaf, and a lot of fish. Supps are fish oil caps, protein shakes, amino acids before I run in the morning, and flax seeds. No carbs after 7:30, training three times a day.

Just try to eat clean - you'd be surprised the difference that it can make. No fast food, and if it's salty, greasy, or really sweet, chances are, you don't need to be eating it. I allow myself one cheat day a week, where I have about two cheat meals, but try to stay relatively strict.

Run in the morning, alternating tempo runs for up to 6 miles, and all kinds of intervals and sprints. Lift 2-3 times a week, hit the boxing gym 5-6 days a week, usually putting in around 20 or 25 rounds of work a day, with one light day, where I focus on skill work.

Thanks mate. Cutting weight is the only thing I hate about boxing, that and losing. Good luck with your fight.

Nah, too taxing on the CNS considering all the training I do. I do a circuit training routine consisting of power cleans, bench press, squats, and weighted pull-ups in that order. I do one after the other with no rest between movements, relatively heavy, for around 3-4 reps max, and a minute break between each circuit. I repeat the circuit 4-5 times, and I'm good.

Still in Nevada, training my ass off. Fighting Saturday, July 4th, the middle of July, and the beginning of August. One of my trainers is great at getting fights.
