I have been doing Muay Thai up until now. My best weight I think was 85kgs or 187lbs (US) Iam 6 ft 5 so I am tall and very lean at that weight. I am moving to amatuer boxing and I have tried to make 81kgs or 178lbs (Light heavy weight limit) I am not going to make that weight. My coach wants me to fight at heavy weight, but I was very lean and big at 85kg/187lbs but at 91kgs/200lbs I wont be. I deally I would like to be lean and big at 91kg/200lbs which means I would need to add another 11lbs of lean mass. Should I cut as lean as I can get over the next few weeks (I am about 89kgs/196lbs) then start adding weight and strength from a lean base? should I deliberately try to add mass? or just accept it as a by product of increased strenngth? Just now I do 2x full body maximal strength/explosive workouts. I am planning to add in a speed strength day of weights, should I replace a maximal strength day with and explosive/speed strength day? or keep 2 maximal strength days and add a speeed strength day? When I have done speed strength days in the past I havent felt as if I have particularly worked very hard as you are using such a light weight (60% of 1rm) Should I just up my calories and protein slightly to ensure my strength cotinues to grow and sut take what ever addd weight comes along? or should I deliberatly try and add some weight through hypertrophy? A lot of questions there, cheers for reading and anyone got any ideas?
