    When I was boxing, amateur gym, the coach would advise us to stay off gym, so we wont get big and heavy muscles and jump in a higher weight category.

    Cardio (minimum 5 km jog, everyday)
    Calisthenics are ok, lots of abs exercises and core strength).

    Farmers walk with small weights, hands down and hands up.

    Midget walk, skiping rope

    And of course a lot of boxing bag, sparing with others and 2 person exercises. (For this last part you need a coach to learn, it's all about muscle memory, and learning the stuff wrong is a big problem). 2-3 times a week to do the last bit it's ok

        Martial arts coaches are often ignorant about strength training and weight lifting and how it helps the sport. They know how to train people to fight but they are often rely on tradition and word of mouth and they are not in touch with the strength and conditioning world. This is sad.

        what the coach probably meant was, the time "wasted" on lifting could be used for more padwork, sandbags, sparring, shadowboxing etc. instead of bodybuilding for aesthetics. i heard a lot of 20th century professional boxers avoided lifting like plague for this reason

          yeah who knows what the fuck he meant. But coaches are often ignorant to how lifting can help their explosiveness and power and even speed. A lot of boxers are against lifting cus they ignant

            As a boxer you want to be light, quick on your feet, etc

            Fast punches (that hit the target)>>>> Strong punches (slow and will likely get blocked or worse countered)

            Bodybuilding for astetics is completely useless and a waste of time for a boxer, although all of us ignored this because we didn't want to be professionals.

            We just wanted to look good and be able to beat your average joe if the need was there

              I somewhat agree with you, obviously you're not a bodybuilder so if you want to a boxer strength and muscle mass aren't going to be your main focus but ignoring how much they can help is retarded. Also not every boxer is the same, although it's the same martial art they are still different sub-styles in that art. Triple G doesn't fight like Muhammad Ali and he doesn't have to, everybody is better at certain things and eventually they will specialize but that doesn't mean they ignore their weak areas. There are plenty of boxers who aren't light on their feet(compared to their opponents) and don't have lightning fast punches that have been world champions. Stop generalizing and putting all boxers into one box because the only boxers you know are the quick ones

          Yes his natural, this picture isn't the best representation as he has a pump, probably flexing and has great lighting. Muscle ESPECIALLY in the heavyweight+ devison will help you immensely, if skill level is equal you bet the one with more Muscle is usually winning more. Just make sure you actually still train mostly boxing depending on your goals ofc

        It's a shame when striking martial artists ignore muscle mass but it's better when they do it because when BJJ do it they are just fucking retarded

          BJJ is just wrestling with extra steps, in boxing you need to move around a lot, be able to send fast punches for a long period of time, while you keep a strong core to block and endure oponent punches.

          Is a sport where cardio, stamina, endurance and speed is key. Big muscles slow you down, consume more oxigen, etc

          And if you aren't retarded you would know that you can train strength without looking like a roided chud

            Ye I know, I'm also an advocate for strength and muscle training in martial arts especially since I have 4 years of lifting experience. I mentioned BJJ because too many of them think being smaller is better or something in an art where you're likely to have another human being on top of you

    is boxing good to do if i'm 30 and just want to be able to protect myself from a hooligan outside?

      BJJ is supposed to be better since most fights will end up on the ground sooner or later. If you’re going to put all the time and effort into learning how to box on the off chance you get lucky and hit the guy, you’d be better off getting a gun.

        They whole point of boxing and learning to actually fight is to keep it off the ground, sorry to say most of these BJJ dudes have never been in a street fight or bar brawl. Boxing is WAY more practical and functional for actual fighting, and it instills the most important aspect of fighting, protecting your head and neck. But you should train in ANY form of combat sport you can find a partner for.

      In general ye it should be fine but make sure you can run away lol, also don't fall for the BJJ hype too quickly a lot of these gays have never grappled/wrestled on asphalt where your skin will constantly be shredded but in general it's a good martial art for self-defense

    In general when not boxing(sparring, heavy bag work and running) I do pull-ups, dips(and occasionally weighted variations of those exercises). I also do dragonflags, ab-rollouts, neck routine and I do superman holds(to make lower back stronger) pretty much every morning. Also make sure to do a shoulder conditioning routine like 2-3 times a week, I use this one https://youtu.be/YGXgpcr7UY4 I also use his neck conditioning.

    I have 4 years of lifting experience at 18 so although I've started to shift a bit increasing one's muscle and muscle endurance will only help you be a better martial artists. Look forward to surpassing your limits anon

    >muscle powers movement of limbs

    >strength = neural + muscle
    >get neural from training
    >get muscle from lifting
    >more muscle you have = more you can use to power your punches
    >boxing is weight class sport
    >advantage gained by maximising useful mass (muscle & skeleton) and minimising useless mass (fat)
    >therefore should lift to maximise muscle growth and get as lean as possible
    >therefore bodybuilding is the most optimal training style for boxing

      I support this thesis. One of the times I got pissed off was when Mat Patt made a film theory about how being fatter is better than being muscle and his evidence for this was Anthony versus that fat dude Ruiz or something completely ignoring that fat mass and muscle mass are very different things. Anyway goal bodies are either Manga Baki or Garou from One Punch Man, I want that lean fighter physique so bad
