Past it? At 24? You mad?!?!
It's not like you've never done anything. If you had been sitting around doing bugger all for the last 10 years, then maybe, yes, but by the sounds of it you've been active so it shouldn't be too bad.
Come on dude.....go for it.
Yeah it's true. I should maybe think about it again. I think I would throw it out there to one of the trainers and see what he thinks, I'm sure they know whether you are capable or not, as I have sparred and trained with them for well over a year now, so they might be able to give me an honest answer.

Oh I know you didn't say they were, but in my post on previous pages when I first mentioned Triathletes and Ironmen/women I also included Marathon runners. So I didn't know if you missed that so I wanted to stress that marathon runners weren't jacks of all trades. I wasn't trying to be a dick if that's how it came off.
Oh yeah, I must have missed it. I agree, about marathon runners. Also no, I didn't think you were being a dick, I just didn't know where the marathon comment came from as I must have missed it lol

24 is not past it..I'm 24 too soo don't drag me into it too..hahahaha..You hear commentators say its too old but most of them don't know shit..
I train 6-7 days a week and if you wanna get really good abs,do a lot of running and a lot of crunches(different types since different types work different ab muscles,top,middle,and bottem)..I do boxing stuff everyday to stay on top of my game,play basketball a lot,run 6 times a week(run+sprints 3 days and run a lot the other 3)..My plan is to fight in the amateurs till I'm 27-28 and than turn pro..Antonio Tarver did it and soo many other guys did too,why can't you and me do it??Anything is possible if you believe in yourself..Amateur experience is the most important thing whether your style is fit for the amateurs or not..
Haha, I don't think 24 is too old if you were already involved. I was just saying for me, it may have been too old to start.
Can you give me a bit more info on you're running schedule? How long do you run for (time or length)? Also do you run just before or after your boxing/weight training? Or do you're running just by itself? I have spoken to people that will do there runs in the morning and then do weights or other training in the evening.
I would just prefer to do things in the one session and was doing running (only twice a week lol) before I started my boxing workout. I don't know if it has any major disadvantages.
