I was wondering if this was too much HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) For putting on any decent muscle mass. You see, I'm in boxing and I love the sport. But there is lotsa cardio and I want to bodybuild too, is there any way I can do both at the same time? Here is my schedule:

Monday-Boxing
Tuesday-Boxing
Wednesday-Local Gym
Thursday-Boxing
Friday-Local Gym
Saturday-Local Gym
Sunday-On Sunday I run for about 3 miles and just chill the rest of the day.

At boxing it's running. 4x3 minutes of bag work. 30 sec break. 4x3 minutes of skipping 30 sec break. 4x3 minutes of shadow boxing (no break) cuts into 4x3 minutes of running on the spot and jumping jacks. 4 rounds of circuit (30 seconds of pushups, situps, burpees, jumping jacks, running on the spot, straight punching.) Then ab work. This is an hour and a half.

At the gym I do deadlifts, squats, bench presses, dips, pull-ups, good mornings, and rows. I lift heavy, I do as much weight as I can do and I do it six times, four sets of it. Know that this isn't all I do, just making an example.

Is it possible to body build and box at the same time? Or can I take it to a certain degree or what? I'm only 14 and I'm not sure what I want to do. I weigh 112 atm 5'4 I'm trying to get to 130 pounds 5'4 I'm eating 2,500 calories a day.

I think you'll be fine if you make up for it with more calories.

Calories are too low. If you're not gaining weight, you simply have to eat more food.

Why do you run on Sunday?

I don't know why. I can't not do anything you know? If I knew it would benefit me more by not doing it I wouldn't do it. I only see advantages, in the ring stamina is a pretty big factor.

Atm I'm consuming 22.3x my body weight in calories. Does 2800 sound better?

I eat at
7:30- 2 cups cooked oatmeal w/ 1 tbsp natural pb and 1 scoop whey protein and 1 cup milk, 500ml water - 650 cals.
12:05 (lunch time in school) 6 inch subway sub with 500ml water and a 2% milk- 450 cals.
3:30- 1 cup brown rice, chicken breast and some mixed veggies with 500ml water. - 600 cals
7:00 (usual time I get home from boxing or gym)- 2 cups cooked oatmeal w/ 1 tbsp natural pb and 1 scoop whey protein and 1 cup milk, 500ml water - 650 cals
10:00- 2 tbsp natural pb and 2 pieces of toast with unsweetened homemade apple sauce (my grandmother makes it) and 1 cup milk- 450 cals.

^-- Hows that?

You don't rest, your muscles won't recover/grow.

Why do you care if it sounds better?

It's not complicated - if you're gaining weight fast enough, you're eating enough.

If you're not gaining weight, you're not eating enough.

Forget about the calculations. They're rough guidelines at BEST. And they CLEARLY don't fit YOU with YOUR level of activity.

Okay?

Now eat up.

1 hr 30 mins at boxing and an hour at the gym didn't really seem like that much to me. But i'll take the advice and eat up.

I eat at
7:30- 2 cups cooked oatmeal w/ 1 tbsp natural pb and 1 scoop whey protein and 1 cup milk, 500ml water - 650 cals.
12:05 (lunch time in school) 6 inch subway sub with 500ml water and a 2% milk- 450 cals.

Just track on fitday and monitor your gains. You'll be the one who knows how it is.

Nice to see you've discovered natural peanut butter! Don't be afraid to get more of your calories from it and other healthy fats, such as egg yolks, olive oil, avocados, raw nuts... Healthy fat is good for you.
