how many days do you train?

as above

i train x4 per week to build my size and strength, i wana start boxing 2 or 3 times per week, but am worried this will cause me to over train or hold my weight training gains back weight training is the main1. boxing would be secondary

i believe with a healthy active lifestyle and some good knowledge and aas/peps use etc that you can live a longer stronger better life.

main interests: physique conditioning, bbj, muay thai.

    That'll be training everyday/night. That's no time for resting, and not good for overtraining. if boxing is secondary, do one class a week for a while and see how it affects your training.

    If your bulking its better to stay away from the boxing as the weight will drop off, try Brazilian Ju Jitsu

    a mainly just wana practise my punches and build up ther power of them, rather than be a proper boxer. would a punching bag in my house be a better option?

    Right I have basically just gone fom 5 x per week BB weight training to 3 x boxing and 3 x weight training (still BB routine)

    My weights have suffered, and I think I have lost muscle, but I am fitter, quicker and a lot better fighter for it. You can keep the weight from falling off from eating a lot, but TBH you will feel the extra weight slowing you down and making sessions harder when you are boxing (and you will want to drop some size lol).

    I am going to drop boxing down to 1 or 2 sessions and do 1 or 2 BJJ sessions EW so I will be better all round. Im a fairly average boxer at best, but strength is a massive help when grappling

    I am trying to cut down to 10% and stay there, whilst staying fit for fighting, and adding on some lean size over the next year. Very hard to do, and not sure if I iwll manage it but I will be caining the gear so this should make it a bit easier lol

    Also if ur on cycle make sure u are using anti e's or something to control water as it fcuks you if ur full of water

    It's not as simple as that, especially if you have no previous boxing or kickboxing experience. There's a certain technique to heavy bag work you don't just 'lay into it', plus you don't get pad work etc at home and I think pad work is great for coordination.

    Atm my weekly plan is

    Monday AM - Weights PM - MMA
    Tuesday - Rest day
    Wednesday AM - Weights PM - MMA
    Thursday AM - Core work PM - Conditioning work
    Friday AM Weights - PM Rest
    Saturday AM - Conditioning work PM - Rest
    Sunday AM - Rest PM Weights followed by some core work


    Its not ideal but if your gonna do boxing and weights in one workout then my recommendation would be to do boxing first then your weights. Its best to practice your skill work (in this case boxing) when you are fresh at the start of your work out and then do your weights.

    i used to do kickboxing few years back, i no how to punch just wana work on punching power, technique etc and hep loosen up my hips as i feel stiff and unsteady due to a weak core and lower back injury i also feel slow when swinging a punch. but dont wana loose weight, iv put alot into gaining it over the years.
    so do you think getting a heavy bg isnt the way to go for this? its what i was going to buy and practise my punches, not just wild swinging lol but proper punches to build up power and the speed of them.

    i feel like if i throw a punch now the guy would of ran round me twice before it get where its going lol (exagerating but u no what i mean) i no my extra weight is slowing me down also

    Wow *shakes head*

    Some people are naturally gifted with tombstone hands but the majority of us wont get a decent punch by just hitting a heavy bag.

    I would go as far to say punch is 80% technique.

    I train every night, 2 days weights, 1 day GPP, the rest muay thai / jui jitsu / MMA
