Weight training for Judo + Boxing
i decided to do both judo and boxing twice a week. Here how my schedule will look like:
Monday: boxing or weight or rest
Wednesday: boxing or weight or rest
Friday:boxing or weight or rest
Saturday:boxing or weight or rest
To add on the top of that , i would to add strength training for my judo. I would like to focus on the functional strength. Therefore, does the following routine would be enough: squat shoulder press ,bench press,chin up
I know its only 3 exercises, but i just want to improve my overall strength.
Also, i'm kinda puzzled where to put these between my judo and my boxing.I still want to be able to recover and rest. Do your think that 1 full day for rest is enough ? I'm 33 years old.
Thanks for your help

If I were you I would do judo tuesday and thursday, boxing monday and friday and not lift, wait and see how your body handles training hard 4 times a week before adding pure weight lifting.
If you decide to lift I do a 5x5 of squat, bench, and seated row. It takes me about 45 min to an hour and its been the best program that I have tried.

I would suggest getting a copy of Easy Strength by Dan John and Pavel T. Lots of good info for strength work when lifting is not your main discipline. Also, deadlifts are probably the best functional strength builder.
