Hi im new to the forum and have a question that relates to my kickboxing training and thought you guys would be ideal to ask:
Im used to fighting around 69kg, perfect for my division of under 70kg, im around 5'10' i think. Over the past few months i have REALLY cleaned up my diet, im very disciplined with saturated fats and carbs after lunch, but eat very well with fruit, vegies, brown rice, yoghurt, eggs, meat etc.
I train very hard. Skipping/bagwork in mornings throughout the weekdays, then a 6km run every weekday then kyokushin or kickboxing class every weekday. Training 3 times a day, and also do situps throughout the day as well, light riding on sat/sundays. I have really leaned up and 'ripped' up a bit, and im REALLY happy with my fitness and endurance levels..my diet gives me good energy levels too.
HOWEVER, i jumped on the scales and to my horror im at 64kg!!! This is far too light and i want to get back up in weight. Can i gain weight whilst maintaing my fitness/endurance and 'lean' muscle? Suggestions please...fighting in two months
Can i simply add weights and more protein or will i have to back off the cardio? I realise i shouldve cycled my regime but too late now...
any help greatly appreciated
