It’s been a while since I’ve posted, how’s everyone doing?
Anyways, over the spring semester of school and first part of summer I have put on a lot of weight. A lot of it has to do with traveling a lot and eating unhealthily.
I weighed 237 (I’m somewhere between 6’ 1" and 6’ 2") after returning from a month long visit with a friend. I played some ball with his men’s league team. A few people had radar guns and I was clocked throwing around 74 to 75 mph, and I played pretty well.
I’ve been home for close to a month and have already lost 8 pounds and an inch off of my waist. I did my weekly weigh in this morning and weighed 229. My goal is to be down to 195 or 200 by the time we start playing next spring.
I had a lot of fun playing at UWyo this last season but I really want to increase the amount of games I play and amount of innings I pitch.
My diet has been sort of a high protein, low carb kind of diet. Most of my daily activity has been walking the dogs and taking care of pigs, I plan on getting into a consistent workout routine when I go back to school, since I’ll have a lot of work to do with our fair and it’ll be tough to be consistent right now.
But anyways, how much do you think 30 pounds or so of weight loss will effect my performance? Will it help my velocity and bat speed? Will it help me get quicker and more agile? Will it help my endurance? etc.
edit: Probably should have mentioned, body fat % is all the way up to 24% (yikes)
