at the height of my karate training i was 175lbs year in year out.
i am worried about my weight,my breath,my heart,ect ect

Hi Daz, good luck on your new drive. There's a fair bit of info on these threads now so hopefully you will find something useful.

In a nutshell you have to sort out a suitable training programme which meets your goals(fitness, weightloss, muscle building whatever) and also overhaul your diet to cut out the beer etc.

As you know Karate so well, maybe this can be your main activity followed by some gym work if you feel you need it.

Set yourself some achievable short term goals which help to your long term goal.

all the best

Paul.

I trained last night too, for the first time since 19th Dec. Man, I can't walk. I always tell myself to take it easy, but I get carried away . I'm paying the price today and will continue to do so for the next few days
