I'm somewhat inexperienced, and recovering from an injury, but I feel it would be good to track my training. Please feel free to constructively critique. BIO - 49 yr old Male, will be 50 in March of 2018. Former athlete for a living, but that's way back. I'm 257 lbs, and 6' 2". I've never been fast and have relied on power for all my athletic endeavors. I boxed with my Latino buddies in the Military for two years but it wasn't any serious training. It was basically to do the workouts, learn a bit and then spar. They ate me up, of course. Recently I started a boxing fitness class to help with cardio and a bit of muscle to assist in recovering from this two-year injury thing. My cardio, as of four weeks ago, was zero. I've asked the boxing fitness guy to also help with my technique, but he is only so knowledgeable, and also it's a class. I'm getting going with one of the actual boxing instructors and will use what I learn from him, and this fine forum, during our sessions AND the boxing fitness class, even though it means I slow way down. GOALS - My MAIN goal is get healthy but alsoo slowly learn to box. I want to find how much speed is inside my body, and box within whatever capabilities I have. Dance like a butterfly? Most likely not. Learn a bunch from Joe Louis? Yes. I feel my weight, given a healthy bodyfat %, should be around 200 lbs. I'll know more as I approach it. I'd also like to engage in their amateur fight nights, where they match participants as equally as possible and have them engage in a series of classes to make sure it's not just a brawl. They require commitment, which I have.
