      Hey, Noobis!
      All the best for the new year -- I hope it is a good one for you.

      Will you be blogging your progress?

      I have not yet formalized my goals, but they are similar to yours in several respects.

      One will be to get MORE sleep -- at least 7-8 hours per night. I tend to wake up a lot, so I will be allowing 9 hours per night to cover the gaps.
      My weight goal is also 75 kg, but I'm going the other way -- down from 84.

      I worry about the boxing -- the only person I ever knew personally who was a boxer had mush for brains by the time he was 60 -- he was hallucinating almost permanently, and eventually needed to be restrained for the safety of himself and others.

      Take care!

      hello Noobis,

      yours goal to go from 63 to 75kg within 5 months is unreal, if you are not total noob in sports and not super skinny. Or it will be fats

      Well, weight gain 12 kg is in 5 months is definitely possible. U can get more water into your body, grow muscle and grow fat. Even if you are a beginner, you can grow maximum 7 kg of lean muscle in a year without steroids. If you are advanced, you can grow much less.
      If you want to gain muscle & fat, it is very doable :) If you want to get 12 kg of muscle in 5 months, I doubt that it is possible with steroids and flawless nutrition.
