Half way through cutting - advice please
Hello guys and girls of wbbf,
I posted here a long while ago now, I think it was around Febuary... I was about 14 stone back then and it took me until mid may to get off my ass and find a GYM and start Kick Boxing classes.
I think the main thing I should mention here is kick boxing has changed my life, I no longer play computer games and watch television all day... I spar with a friend, have a kick boxing back in the garden and train to get into the best shape I can for my classes when I want to do as well as possible.
To date I have lost 20 pounds, I now weigh 12 stone 4 pounds. My current aim is to cut to around 11 stone 7 and then begin properly weight lifting and working hard on getting my strength up. At the moment due to cutting it is all cardio and toning type things.
I am eating:
Two Eggs for breakfast (I eat the yolks as well, any one disagree with this?)
140g of Tuna for lunch in whole meal roll
Orange Juice 1/2 pint,
2/3 litres of water a day,
tea 1 cup a day,
Milk 1/2 pint,
Things I have 100% Cut out include:
White Bread - I did cut out ALL bread... but I got told I need at least some carbs through bread or rice... oops! Which is better to eat? Bread or rice by the way?
Choclate and Sweets
All Fizzy Drinks
As for my Routine:
3 days per a week
40 crunches - hold 2 and release
40 sit ups - hands on chest
40 sit ups - Each Shoulder to oposing knee
20 - Diamond Press Ups
20 - Wide Arm Press Ups
20 - Arms right at side press ups
20 - Planks
20 - Inverted Planks
20 - Muay Thai Squats
20 - Standard Squats
20 - Star Jumps
20 - Spin Jump
20 - Tuck Jump
20 minutes running
20 minutes cycling
1000 metres rowing
25 minutes throwing combos on the punch bag
1 hour kick boxing class
2 days per week
10 minutes intense cardio - sprinting, inter-walking, jumping, you get the idea
10 minutes conditioning - usually around 100 sit ups, 40 press ups, 40 squat
10 minutes stretching - Stretching muscles in your legs and arms (you get the idea)
15 minutes line work - Usually kicking, punching combinations or bag work
15 minutes Sparring - (3 x 3 minute rounds) Full contact 50% power sparring
Basically I am looking to really push myself now I want to lose around 12 pounds in 8 weeks, and am wondering if any one can comment on my eating or training habbits that will help me cut down quicker or in a more healthy mannor.
I just really want to say thanks in advance an emphasise how much such an easy to do thing as exercising and kick boxing has changed my life for the better.
