Hey guys, I'm 6'2 20yrs & 204lbs and I'm an MMA fighter and a kickboxer. I used to be about 180lbs, but I guess I hit a growth spurt and now I can't manage to cut down to 170lbs anymore. Anyway I lost weight from 210 to 195 to compete at 185. I didn't particularly enjoy doing this at all and i've already regained most the weight. Basically I want to compete at heavyweight with has a 265lb cap. In the short term I'd like to compete at around 230lbs. Gaining a bit of bodyfat isn't a huge issue, but I certainly don't want to be obese like (some) powerlifter. Whats the best way to go about this? Any help would be much appreciated.
Hips (around buttock) : 41in
Waist (measured around belly button. Jean size 32) : 36in
Upper arm : 15in
At approx 15% BF.
P.S. I'm very new to weightlifting, as in less than a couple months of serious lifting. I'm looking at starting the 5/3/1 after my knee surgery.
