About myself: 24, 5'8, 157 pounds
When I was in high school I did karate and muay thai. Skinny dude. I wanted to be the modern Jean Claude Van Damme.
Then in college I got into weight lifting because I couldn't make it to kickboxing anymore. During that period, I bulked up to 190 pounds mostly muscle.
After college I missed contact sports so my friend got me into boxing and got back down to "fighting shape". Been doing that for about 18 months.
Recently, I got a job in South Korea teaching English and will probably not be willing to spend money on a gym because I would like to continue in a boxing gym. Two gym memberships are out of my budget.
At the boxing gym, I wanted to focus strictly on boxing so I was looking for an intense home workout program without weights that I could continue to do. I'm not looking for maintenance but a program that will actually make me see gains so I fell onto this site.
Before I get into the rhythm of things, I decided to sample a workout and go with the hardest level so that I could find my level.
Level 8, Day 1: 16 rounds
Comments: Out of breath...my pace was pretty slow in the beginning. I forgot how short 20 minutes is. I can definitely feel my heavy lunch today. The style is similar to circuit training in boxing. I think 20 rounds for Level 8, Day 1 would be a great goal. I only read a few people's logs so I'm not quite sure how good I did. I think it's unfair to compare most logs because most people are trying to get back in shape while I consider myself already in shape and am trying to further advance it.
