Right now I weigh 275 pounds, I am 6’4’’, 17 years old. I am overweight and that is mostly due to a huge increase of weight that happened in a tramatic time of my life a couple years ago. Now I am trying to get back down to around 240-245 at the minimum by next baseball season. I have 9 months until baseball starts again and I am really just looking for any advise on good tricks I can do to not eat a lot, or what type of balance in my eating habits I should consider (protein, fats, carbs).
Right now I am just trying to eat better things and lessen my intake throughout the day. I have eliminated pop entirely and sticking to water, propel, vitamin water, and sport drinks. Also, is doing things like playing tennis, basketball, racquet ball, walking my dog throughout the day helping me a little or a lot? I am trying to stay active throughout the entire day so I dont get bored and binge on a ton of food.
Any tips on weight loss and how to get my mind off food or fight cravings would be much appreciated.
I just got a personal trainer yesterday (7-11) and he has me doing upper body one day and lower the next, alternating between the two.
Lower body workout:
- Core strength
Upper body workout:
- Rotator Cuff
He is also having me do Yoga and Spin Class once a week.
Is there any other typs of workouts I could incorporate or is what I am doing a solid foundation?
Any thing would be much appreciate, even just a few words of motivation!
PS: I am a pitcher and I havent been clocked in like three years, but I am guesstimating I throw around 80-84 mph with a good curve and developing change-up. I want to throw much harder and develop my change-up and possibly incorporate a sinker or slider next year.
