    Too Much HIIT For Putting On Mass + My Diet + My Schedule

    I was wondering if this was too much HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) For putting on any decent muscle mass. You see, I'm in boxing and I love the sport. But there is lotsa cardio and I want to bodybuild too, is there any way I can do both at the same time? Here is my schedule:

    Monday-Boxing
    Tuesday-Boxing
    Wednesday-Local Gym
    Thursday-Boxing
    Friday-Local Gym
    Saturday-Local Gym
    Sunday-On Sunday I run for about 3 miles and just chill the rest of the day.

    At boxing it's running. 4x3 minutes of bag work. 30 sec break. 4x3 minutes of skipping 30 sec break. 4x3 minutes of shadow boxing (no break) cuts into 4x3 minutes of running on the spot and jumping jacks. 4 rounds of circuit (30 seconds of pushups, situps, burpees, jumping jacks, running on the spot, straight punching.) Then ab work. This is an hour and a half.

    At the gym I do deadlifts, squats, bench presses, dips, pull-ups, good mornings, and rows. I lift heavy, I do as much weight as I can do and I do it six times, four sets of it. Know that this isn't all I do, just making an example.

    Is it possible to body build and box at the same time? Or can I take it to a certain degree or what? I'm only 14 and I'm not sure what I want to do. I weigh 112 atm 5'4 I'm trying to get to 130 pounds.

    I eat at
    7:30- 2 cups cooked oatmeal w/ 1 tbsp natural pb and 1 scoop whey protein and 1 cup milk, 500ml water - 650 cals.
    12:05 (lunch time in school) 6 inch subway sub with 500ml water and a 2% milk- 500 cals.
    3:30- 1 cup brown rice, chicken breast and some mixed veggies with 500ml water. - 650 cals
    7:00 (usual time I get home from boxing or gym)- 2 cups cooked oatmeal w/ 1 tbsp natural pb and 1 scoop whey protein and 1 cup milk, 500ml water - 650 cals
    10:00- 1/2 cup fat free yougurt, 1/2 scoop whey protein, 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese, 1/2 banana, 1 cup milk - 450 cals

    Trying to go from 112 to 130 pounds.

    I'm getting around 62g fat 392 carbs and 232 protein Thats about .6 fat per pound of bodyweight, 3.5g carbs per pound of bodyweight and 2.07g protein per pound of bodyweight. about 20/50/30 fat carb protein.

    Atm I'm eating about 3,000 calories a day.

    I was wondering am I too young to be taking Creatine? I'd only take about 3 grams for 2 months on then 1 month off after workouts.

    I see no reason why you can't keep doing what you're doing. you may not pack on muscle as fast but you'll for damn sure keep body fat low.

    In my mind there's never any real reason to worry about "too much cardio." it's all a ratio thing basically (yeah there's more complicated aspects to it, but at 14, no need to worry yourself with that).

    if you burn more calories than you consume, you lose weight (more spacifically fat - providing your protein consumption and lifting doesn't stop)

    if you burn less calories than you take in you'll gain weight (but again, with diets right and all that goodness, this should be almost all muscle)

    So I say keep doing what you're doing. If you're worried about not putting on enough mass, eat more, or do less cardio. And in your case you say you wanna do both boxing and bodybuilding, so then just focus on diet instead of faving to not do soemthing you want you. Add another meal if you don't think you're taking in enough calories. It's all about food

    speaking of diets, what you've got going now looks alright, but it looks to me like all your protein comes from dairy/whey (except the chicken breast). Don't be scared of red meats (just get them as lean as you can) and eggs/whites are your friend. Both of which are slower absorbing and will serve to fuel your regrowth for a longer period. With whey it's absorbed fast and that's it. So don't be afraid to diversify proteins (except for post workout, then Whey > other protein, and before bed, caisen > other protein).

    Lastly, Creatine. A similar form, of the kind you take as a suppliment, is found naturally occuring in your blood (it's derived mostly from red meats in your diet, aswell as broccoli, and some other foods). Also there have been no research that goes to prove it having any adverse effects on the body. So I say go ahead and take it, if you don't really see any improvements in size, strength or endurance then i say don't bother. don't wanna waste money do you?

    if there's anything you think I didn't put or have questions, ask em here or PM me, whichever you like. Either way, best of luck with your training
