Major Muscle Groups

Trained female boxer previously competing at a welterweight class (140-147 lbs.)
Our goal is to drop a competitive weight class, from welterweight to super lightweight, while maintaining strength and lowering body fat percentage.
What is boxing?
- drop a competitive weight class while maintaining strength and lowering body fat percentage
- take skin folds every week and hydrostatic weigh once a month
- completing this workout plan and following this diet will help the athlete to not only reach their goal of lowering body fat percentage without losing lean mass but will also help them to win more fights, gain more skills and have more of a sense of achievement
- moderately trained boxers are in pretty good shape so these exercise may come as second nature for them; the workout plan that is being implemented is realistic because the athlete is used to these kinds of exercises just on a smaller and less intense scale
- Our time frame is not very short, three months to be exact, which gives the athlete a lot of time to focus on their diet, exercise and internal motivation. Our time frame is reasonable so that the goal can be achieved.
