    what kind of benching do you think has more carryover to punching?

    flat or incline?
    barbell or dumbells?

    In my wellness class last yeaer, we did a month or two of weightlifting. I weighed about 175 and maxed 175. I'm planning to do weightlifting next year, so hopefully I'll improve my bench.

    I practice sprawling with plates attached to my back, so that when I get punched in the gut, I can fall down faster.

    170 lbs is the most I've ever weighed. My weight is somewhere between 165 and 170 lbs on average.
