Boxing and unwanted Weight loss??

Hey guys

I am thinking of starting Boxing, and I am fully aware of all the cardio which is involved.

To the people who do weight lifting for Mass etc, I need your opinions. Currently I am 15stones. My question is that have you guys found it hard to gain weight whilst doing Boxing? or have lost some weight due to it.

Hope some1 can chime in.

Thanks

    I found it ok to put on weight actually, managed to gain weight and improve my body composition. You just have to be smart with your diet.

    Though I was only boxing twice a week and lifting twice a week.

    As long as you adjust your diet and rest to suit then it should'nt be too much of an issue.

    Are you looking to compete? If so that is when it may have more of an impact.

    Then you should be fine, just keep a tab on things and adjust when needed.

    Also, in my opinion, boxing is a very good place to start when it comes to wanting to be able to defend yourself in a physical situation.

    If you're doing a lot of boxing training then it will definately make it somewhat harder to gain muscle mass, in my experience anyway mate

    But you shouldn't lose any as long as you are careful

    I'm with Drab on this one. Your muscles wouldn't get the required time to recover if you were looking to put on serious size mate. . .boxing is a killer!

    It can interfere with your bodybuilding diet, too - because you might not feel like eating so many meals during the day, the boxing kind of training like running, skipping doesn't feel too good if you have eaten something in the 2 hours before training time and if you are totally exhausted after sparring or training hard you might also not feel like eating something straight after training.
