    I'm 18 years old and weigh in at 73 kg (160lbs) and I want to reach heavyweight-weight. (91kg/200lbs) what would be the best boxers approach on that.

    Thanks to all in advance!

    Are you sparring and fighting yet? I'm assuming your not only because its the type of question I been asked by raw novices prior to moving around the ring and getting a feel of the importance of reach, let alone the rest of the orchestra needed to be good at boxing. Boxing's hard enough without handicapping yourself by trying to do two things with your body at once...and if your an ordinary person, at 18 yo you're still developing.

    If your set on being a Hvy, definitely learn to box first at a lower weight, and if you want to body build or power lift up into a heavier weight class, that's do-able. But remember, you'll never realy be a Hvy unless your body naturally is a Hvy; you'll only ever be a bodybuilt up middle or Lt Hvy. Your ability to take a punch wont be increased by virtue of the extra muscle and your cardio system will have to work harder - your heart is only ever the size of your fist throughout your life.

    If your really set on being humbled by unnaturally moving to Heavyweight, the weights / conditioning plan that Tim Hallmark used on Evander Holyfield to take him cruiser to heavy is on the internet. Google is your friend - besta luck.

    Does Tim Hallmark's conditioning plan includes and discloses what kind of peds Holyfield used as well?

    Edit: apart from the question i agree on all points.

    Eat milk and cereal at night before you go to bed. That will pack on the pounds rather quickly.

    Well, how tall are you? Do you feel too weak at that weight?
