Run Streak and Running Goals:

Share of the Week: Transformation Tuesday – Bryant Lin

Throughout the years, we’ve had a number of athletes at Dreamland Boxing go through transformations, physically and mentally, in preparation for their first fight.

Today’s featured athlete is Bryant Lin (@bryanticker). In 6 weeks while training for his first amateur fight, Bryant was able to:

• Cut his mile time from 6:00 to 5:20

• Drop 8lbs from 158 to 150

• Cut his body fat from 13.4% to 8.6%

• Lose 8lbs of fat mass from 21.3lbs to 13lbs

• Put on 0.7lbs of lean mass despite the weight cut

• Run 10.5 miles of hills at Quicksilver

• Gain valuable boxing experience sparring with pros Ali Ahmed and Chris Washington

Read more about his training at Dreamland Boxing, S&C with Arian Soltero at PerformanceGaines, track work with me, and recovery at SMI.
