Advice on supplemental gym training needed
Hello everyone, I train in boxing 3 times a week and I have the time and energy for 2 more training sessions in the gym, now because twice a week obviously isn’t enough to build the perfect body, I compromise and at least want to better my fitness and strength for the boxing classes. The sessions in the gym will be on Monday and Saturday. Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday are boxing days.
I was advised here to stop lifting after the boxing class in my boxing gym (we have a hardcore gym there, not my other fancy gym) because it is futile to strengthen oneself after an hour and a half of boxing while you have zero glycogen in your muscles. That way I have more energy the next day in my regular gym and I stopped getting injuries.
My goal I guess is to become muscular but athletic enough for the boxing classes. And I wouldn’t lose shelling off a few kilo of fat… and of Corse strong in a functional way that will improve my boxing.
One of the things I started doing with good results for now is the Randy Couture’s grappling circuit which is a slice of hell brought to your gym. It is designed for wrestlers/grapplers but im pretty sure it’s just as good for strikers. It showed me how weak my legs where, and I feel sore after every time for 2 days, it mainly works on your legs back and shoulders, and allows me to cover a lot of muscles in a short period, I will usually complete this with 3 sets of pull ups and dips, and maybe some pec exercises .
If anyone here wishes to help, it will be appreciated a lot! I need 2 gym workouts that will complete my 3 boxing classes.
Thanx a lot Erez.
