    For your own sake stop.

    Stop eating the instant noodle stuff. Its okay to have as a snack before training now and then but you should not be eating that stuff all the time.

    Change your diet. Clean it up. Eat lots of fresh fuit and vegeatbles - most of your carbohydrates should be from those, not processed packaged stuff like noodles or pasta. Get suck into the lean protein like red meat,fish,chicken. Go to the fresh food section in your supermarket or the butchers and you'll see what I mean.

    Once you start eating healthy you'll see a big difference. You'll also have the energy to train with.

    I try to follow the food pyramid best I can. It's never really been an energy problem, just a weight one.

    I'll take up the advice on more fruit and veges though. Thanks.

    The food pyramid is not an athletic diet.

    Damn Sniffler. Then don't ask questions like one about while talking about being so small and so weak that I feint and I'll never be a monster and being big is better blah blah blah.

    Why am I saying this? Because sniffler you have a height and weight advantage on me and It's never stopped me from doing anything. At your age I was pound for pound stronger than most people I knew because I ate right, took my ass to the gym and lifted heavy weights. Over the years I also started taking all the martial arts that I could that involved heavy sparring such as wrestling, western boxing, muay thai and BJJ amongst others. Over the years I have owned many people both on the mat and on the street who were much bigger than me.

    At two places I trained I was also the official "noob breaker" which meant that all new people in class fought me first regardless of size. Why? What better way to show how good the school is when you get your ass handed to you by a guy who you outweigh by 50 to 100lbs.

    The point is that if you have a good work ethic and really give a **** than you can make a difference. You can be a monster in judo if you want to. You can kick peoples asses with solid boxing skills. You can tap out huge guys with BJJ. You can jack people up when you combine the three together. You also have speed to your advantage and by your own mouth endurance. Wear out your bigger opponents with defense until they are tired and then **** them up. Work on your timing, speed and flexability. Use your brain and be smarter and more technical than everybody else. Be innovative by finding modifications that work for you.

    But most of all, you need to stop being a *****. Believe it or not you are being one right now because you've mentally given up. That's why I say, Man up bitch and do something about it!

    Good post. Seriously, dude, you do sound like a *****. Who cares if you're 155? All the more reason to train harder. Besides, when I was 18 I was 5'8" and 135. Now I'm 5'10" and 170. You are going to gain weight--it's up to you whether or not it's good weight or bad weight.

    I'm 6ft and 132 lbs. After 8 months of judo I can tap the n00bs in class (they are 165 and 180 lbs). It's better for technique to roll with people bigger than you, and when you get beigger you will start to dominate people your size.

    I was wondering, at my current age, am I pretty much "stuck" where I am through the rest of my life? Or will I be bigger in a few years? I was told that humans go through a second "growth spurt" at around 20. I hear genetics play a lot into it as well. My father (before he died 6 years ago) was also 5'10 but much heftier (around 210 pounds).

    I ask because I'd like to one day check out judo and get good with that. Small guys usually don't fare well in that art.

    Thanks.

    Alot has to do with your genetics. I was about 5' 10" 175lbs fiishing high school, I'm now 6' 1" 250lbs, with my weight best around 230lbs in training.

    As for size in Judo, I guess someone should tell that to my last instructor, he was 5' 4" and threw me around like a child.

    Yea, first two months were once a week, then had to go home from college and did very little for three months, came back 3 x a week for the last three months. Judo = 50% stand up 50% ground. So about 4.5 months worth of good traning, and 2 months and a week dedicated to the ground. Next to those two I was the only one to join in 8 months, so I had to wate a while to find out I could tap n00bs.

    Is this you?
