    Inside the gym they do skipping,bag work,pad work and lots of sparring. Anyway the bulk of their resistance training seems mainly to consist of pushup,situps,dips that sort of stuff. I mean there is a bit of weight training used but not much. The only weight training one of them did was say bench press 50kg 30 times and a bit of dumbell work.

    I'm not trolling but the point I'm trying to make was that the impression I got from that book was pro boxers don't do ALOT of weight training. Endurance seems to be what they are after.

    Funny, you claim to have boxed before. I guess reading a book counts as training, eh Hannibal?

    This can also be gained from weight training... you just do a program that conditions for endurance and not one geared (excuse pun here) for bodybuilding etc...

    There are still, even to this day, coaches that are against weight training in boxing.
    As silly as that sounds.
    Though the vast majority have come to the realisation of how indespensible ST is.

    Maybe he and his brother are hardcore cage fighter wannabes and fight bare-handed all the time like Napoleon and Kip :happy:

    Shumagorath, yes I have bxed before. This is just a book I was flicking through. SPeaking of boxing, maybe YOU should try it. Judging by your stand up footage you need the practice.

    Thatīs what works for me, and thatīs what my instructor recommends for people into MA.

    Anyway, Iīve read somewhere that five to six days a week routines can be counterproductive, due to the needed time to recover.

    And more on-topic, Iguess that you must do weights with care if you need to stay in a certain weight division, maybe thatīs why weightlifting is ill-adviced by some coaches.

    A side note here. My instructor onece told me that he liked to stop weighlifting about a week or two before a fight. He told me that this way he maybe lost a little punch power, but felt lighter and faster.

    The only people that can pull off working out 5-6 days a week intensely are either those using a lot of supplements or very advanced lifters who are only training on two or three lifts tops, usually with singles or low reps.

    And more on-topic, Iguess that you must do weights with care if you need to stay in a certain weight division, maybe thatīs why weightlifting is ill-adviced by some coaches.
    That's pretty true as well, probably the only boxers that do a lot of lifting are heavyweights aside from the lower weight classers which might need those few extra pounds.
