    Training camp is merciless and brutal. Most people don't have the genetics to endure such harsh conditioning. I'm actually shocked that YouTube gay pulled it off. He's a decent fighter.

      Some of them aren't. But the true ones are brutal.

      >Most people don't have the genetics to endure such harsh conditioning.
      This is fucking wrong. Most people give up. You don't need to have elite genetics to get through cardio. You just need to be resilient.

      >I'm actually shocked that YouTube gay pulled it off. He's a decent fighter.
      Logan Paul is a terrible boxer. Watch his floyd fight. If your referring to his brother, Jake. He has yet to box a real boxer.

      some definitely do with great success, george foreman, evander holyfield, and mike tyson all did weightlifting in addition to the usual boxing training regimen, thought i doubt it would be more than 3 times a week

      I'd say so, but not to the point that an amateur at muay thai can beat someone who is even slightly better at boxing. You'd have to be doing some legitimate scam martial art like Tai chi for that to happen

        >In every single way Muay Thai is better than boxing

        Boxers' hands and footwork are objectively superior, and this is coming from someone who does muay thai. I just kick the shit out of their legs and try to throw knees when they're slipping and rolling but I know I would get rekt if it was boxing rules. That's why I've supplemented muay thai with boxing because most MT fighters aren't used to dealing with punches in volume.

      I can tell you with 100% certainty that if you are training the boxing at any level close to seriously you will struggle to make any gains. The amounts of cardio you will be doing will be insane, and not just that, your mindset will be different, this is maybe even more important as you will feel like the mind muscle connection is the direct opposite of the mind throwing hands fast connection. I am extremely blessed genetically at lifting. For reference pic related is me pushing 34 working horrible shifts, sleeping like shit and working out maybe max 3 times a week with no real structure. Diet wise I am eating whatever the fuck my wife and kids feel like eating + some beer and weed. Back then I was eating 4.5-5k calories daily of vertical diet style monster mash meals but doing three a days of lifting/endurance/technique meant I couldn’t touch 180lbs with a pole at 6’0.

      tl;dr pick one you enjoy more and do it, doing both means you are giving yourself a guarantee to not advance too far in both

      I'm in good shape cardio wise with 6 years in muay thai but I've lost a significant amount of muscle over the years. I was 5'10", 180 lbs right before I stopped lifting and started taking MT seriously and I'm down to 155 lbs. I hate that I'm so small now. I was never intimidating but now I feel mogged all the god damn time when hanging out with my friends who lift. Yeah I can fight but that doesn't really matter.

          I went through a few weight cuts and never gained it back because I felt better as a fighter the lighter I got.

          I know a few too, the ones who take anabolics and don’t do too much cardio because epo got their back

          [...]
          I get what you’re saying, feeling too small isn’t nice no matter how much I could cope that I can fight

          It would be nice if I could lift some weights as well but I know it will never make me big. I'm a little bit disproportionate right now so lifting would be for vanity.

      You’re right to be. I did 5 years and still have weird ticks and and was way sharper in HS. Used to get headaches all the time. I was never even knocked out and can count on one hand the times I was even slightly dazed. That shit just adds up. You could just train with low intensity sparring, but if you look at all the most important styles for MMA (kickboxing, boxing, wrestling) they’re all actually really simplistic. My theory is a lot of their value comes from actually having to apply techniques on real opponents going 100%. The BS gets weeded out fast. So boxing without competing or even just hard sparring would be as useless as kung fu.

        Sounds like you went to a shit gym if they let a fucking high school kid spar hard.

      You don't look genetically blessed. Your pec insertions are either crap or you don't work chest. Your bicep is fucking small LOL. And your pinching your waist to make it look small.

      Not true my guy. Lift and do martial arts. You may need to slow down in an area around competition time, but you can certainly build muscle and do martial arts. I've seen plenty of monster mma fighters

    it doesn't compare. they're two different disciplines. If you want to lift then that's fine you can definitley do both but remember that it's highly unlikely you'll be GREAT at both. But as an average person fuck yeah you could be in the top 5% of men in both disciplines.

    Boxing imo is 90% cardio and technique man. Muscles don't mean shit if that's what you're asking. If you want to lift FOR boxing I would suggest lifting for strength but not doing SS as the high volume of squats and low rep scheme won't be directly helpful. I would work in a 8rep scheme possibly, but take my advice with a grain of salt.

    Ignore the autistic fucks.
    I'll assume you're talking about developing proficiency and being able to defend yourself against the average gay instigating a fight.
    In that regard, think of boxing exactly like lifting. After a single year of ~4 times a week in the gym (with adequate sleep and a good diet), you mog 95% of men. 2 years, it's pretty close to 99%.
    A majority of people have never even been in a fight in the same way that a majority haven't ever lifted a weight. Yes, there are a few that have fought, but nothing beyond swinging like a chimp a couple of times, just as there are some who come to the gym a couple of weeks every now and then but look just slightly less shit than the average person.
    If you dedicate +3 days a week to boxing for a year, you'll be able to fuck up 95% of people in a streetfight. 2 years, virtually everybody. Yes, your lifting will probably take a hit but it's worth it in the grand scheme of things. You are still more than capable of doing both assuming you work reasonable hours.
