    Try reading the article I posted before dismissing the possibility of gaining weight.

    Besides, you only need to lift for 30-45 minutes each time, 2-3 times a week. Chill out on a couple of those training sessions (maybe make it an hour and a half) and do a strength session mid-day with 3 exercises. "Weights" doesn't mean going to the gym and benching and curling for 2 hours.

    I'd rather not derail this thread too much so we'll discuss it in pms if you want, basically i am already close to over training and if i added even 2 weight sessions i'll definitely be doing it. Also, in order to put on muscle mass i'd need to eat an insane amount just to get a calorie surplus from 12 hours a week MT cardio work, if you mean just strength training then yeah that'd work. I'll probably start adding in strength training in a month or two.

    I've just started boxing lessons. I'm into about a week of training and I'm as addicted to it as I am bjj.

    I am however sick of wearing the smelly nasty gym gloves. I asked the coach for what to buy and he said 16 ounce training gloves and recommend I look on ringside.com. He said to start with training gloves so I could use them for bagwork and sparring until I get more serious. So I've narrowed it down to a few and wanted any feedback you guys might have. He also recommended I stay away from laces (probably because he is sick of having to glove everyone in the gym who uses the gloves he provides).

    Ringside Safety Training Gloves - Hook & Loop

    Ringside International Training Gloves - Hook & Loop Cuff

    Grant Campeón Hook & loop Training Gloves

    I also looked at Cleto Reyes and Rival, but their prices were significantly higher and I wasn't sure I was ready to make such a large investment. In any case, does anyone have an insight on what would be the best choice?

    both of the ringside gloves are *very* similar and are both excellent choices (if you want to save a bit of money, the top contender branded safety gloves are almost as nice as the ringside branded ones.)

    grant has a great rep, but those are their budget line, so i can't be sure about how nice they are.

    i have used the ringside ones, the combat sports version, the top contender version, and my current gloves the ringside IMF safety glove, and they are *all* excellent choices.

    the IMF ones are the best i have tried, and they really do reduce impact quite a bit.

    sorry if my post was full of information but not really helpful. to be honest there isn't a huge difference between the gloves you linked to, you didn't choose any crappy gear to compare.

    Anyone have any experience with Everlasts new Protex2 gloves? I'm really hesitant to trust everlast, because of the junk they produce, but I think that is just in their budget line.

    To be honest with you i think you should just stay away from Everlast completely, pretty much everything i've bought from them just rips or breaks within 2 - 3 months.

    I've had the same experience with evercrap. Right now I'm liking my gloves from Piranha Fight Gear.

    Hmm, thanks that helps. However, now I have to decide if I want the normal gloves of the IMF gloves LOL.

    i got the IMF gloves cause i was training and coaching a *lot* and also i am getting old and appreciate the lesser strain on my joints.

    they do absorb a lot of impact, when i first got them i though i was having a bad day and was punching like a schoolgirl, but i had a friend hold mitts for me and he said that i was hitting just as hard, i just wasn't feeling much of the impact.
