    Well I thought I'd make myself a thread, hopefully it'll boost my motivation to stick at it and acheive my goals.

    Currently I train kickboxing three times a week [tuesday, thursday and friday], rugby on a wednesday and also go to the local [basic] gym in town on a friday. I'm hoping to set up more equipment in my workshop to go along with my punch bag I have.

    My food intake kinda went off the rails in recent months from things that have happened to me personally, and not monitoring what I eat properly, thus my weight and poor build.

    Enough chit chat, lets start the stats...

    current stats:

    Age - 19
    Height - 6"3'
    Weight - ~260lbs

    [​IMG]

    Goals:

    Short Term: Get my home gym going, getting myself a set of weights, and a bench. Work on my cardio for rugby and start to manage my diet better


    Middle Term:
    drop around 45 - 50 pounds in fat, and to tone up. Do more weights to become stronger in my upperbody and become more flexible with my legs.

    I would also like to start mma training by september, moving to Muay Thai rather than kickboxing and start a grappling skill, preferably wrestling or Judo.

    Long Term:

    Maintane my diet, and health and consistantly becoming fitter and stronger. I would love to one day compete in a big mma show, or k1.
    _____________________________________________________________________________

    Each log I will add the food intake I have for that day, as well as training which I have been doing.

    I normally don't comment on logs often, but you really should check out the D + S. I'm not very anal about following diets perfectly, but you didn't have any vegetables besides corn. If you really hate veggies, buy yourself some greens powder.

    My other advice to you is stretch often. I put in close to 30 minutes everyday stretching in two sessions. Easy to do while watching tv. My flexibility has increased tremendously in the past year.

    Lastly, if you want to gain strength but you are limited on time with kickboxing, mma, etc., then I'd do complexes such as power clean to push press to front squat or deadlift to hang clean to push press.

    Best of luck.

    could you put amounts(approximate) on the food and do something to delineate between D+S and training. Maybe a different text color or something. Also, I am assuming that those are times in the front, right?

    On first glance it doesn't look like you are eating enough food. And to reiterate more veggies or supplement them as suggested.

    And just so I don't forget, check faq in D+S and check out precisionnutrition.com

    I'll keep checking this.
