How's my boxing diet?

  1. How's my boxing diet?


    I am going to be doing ss and boxing.... Ss will be just alittle bit different... As in less squats... Becusse boxing is a leg workout to.....anyway I'm 183lbs now....probally 14-18%bf Want to cut down to 175 and 10-12%bf......

    Meal 1
    3 eggs
    Handful of almonds/nut of some kind
    Greek yogurt honey (23 carbs still 14protein)

    Meal 2
    6oz of chicken
    Greek yogurt cup
    Apple

    Meal 3
    6oz chicken or lean meat or shrimp etc
    Apple or bannana

    Meal 4 before bed
    Greek yogurt
    Natty pb


  2. After my workouts which are 5 days a week.... I have a protein shake usually 30-60 grams of protein....

  3. You're going to need way, way more calories than that. Like about 1500 more per day.

  4. Forgot to add I'm drinking a quart of milk a day also... Chocolate milk

  5. Well, you'll still need more calories and boxing is not a leg workout. It's great mobility and agility work, but not a leg workout. If anything, change your squats to the 50-60% range and do them explosively a la box squats or against bands.

  6. Sounds good and I'll try and get them calories up... Maybe added red meat in place of chicken for dinner n up servings to 8oz...

  7. Rodja, is correct. Working on legs is essential for boxing. Additionally, you need to adjust your diet for the type of training that you're engaged in. Preset calories seems logical, as you may be trying to come in at a target weight - BUT if you keep calories too low, you'll come in flat. I'd say stay around the 3000-4000 cal range, and even then that may be a bit too low, especially if you run daily, engage in mitt work, spar and lift. Just my 2 cents and good luck!

  8. Ya I do all that.... I'll try and keep my calories up and go week by week...Thanks a lot guys.... And I am also a south paw haha

    We are definitely a pain the a$$ to match up with. Good luck!

  12. ^^^ deff right about needing more cals, but I feel like all the yogurt and fruit you got going is alot of sugar(glucose), I'd maybe add alot more vegetables ( you can never have enough) and less carbs at night, protein, good fats, that way you wake up in a fasting state and can get after some cardio a few times a week to help cut down the body fat.

    You do realize that all substrate converts to glucose, correct? With all of his activity, he's going to need the simple carbs from fruits for a quick source of fuel and to keep liver glycogen full.

  14. True true, cutting out sugars really helped me in cutting but his boxing workouts are gonna be alot more fuel demanding, what about less sugar but more whole gains pre/ post to keep him goin cuz excess glucose is just gonna get stored

    I am not a proponent of any grains in the diet. He can get all the fuel he needs from high fat and produce consumption.

  16. Heard that get after some peanut/ almond butter! And I feel the same if it has ingredients if can't be as good as something straight from animals/plants.

    I suggested that cuz personally if I have rough back or leg day ahead of a bowl of rolled oats or wheat bran gives me some extra to last.

  17. Hmm lots to think about now... Like the ease of downing a yogurt cup.... And no homo grabing a handful of nuts....vs cooking veggies or heating them back up... Veggies just don't taste good the day after.... Hahaha but I'll think bout it...

  18. Some good tips in this thread.
