    my friend that have been learning cma for a while told me lifting weights actually slow you down and causing your punches kicks slower, i just got a weight lifting program so should i stick with weight lifting or just hit bags, pads, mitts??? i need advice immediately because my schedule starts back in friday

    Merged... no need to clutter with multiple posts. Please avoid if you can. Thanks.

    Your friend is wrong. Lifting weights can actually make you faster maybe, but not slower at all. When you rest you build muscle. When you lift you break it down. By lifting, you tell your body it needs to get stronger, so it does (when it is resting).

    Keep lifting.

    Resting on its own won't make you stronger (obviously) but resting after working out will.

    everyday i feel really tired too even before i lift weights and i dont feel i was getting stronger
    That's because you were lifting "every day." Lifting weights every day is too much, maximum five times a week (cycling through different body parts). Personally I'd say three times a week is optimum.

    Do you have a bench or rack? Probably not, but you don't need them really. Are the weights standard or olympic? DO the "retractable" dumbells use these weights or are they like a powerblock?

    You really need a straight bar to get started on all the good exercises. Then you can row, shrug, squat, clean, overhead press, deadlift, all the good exercises.

    The hardgainer FAQ has quite a bit of useful info on the whole lift/rest-thing.

    Dude a standard straight bar is 35lbs. Also, EZ curl bars suck for anything but curling, which is a low priority for you. Get a friend to go with you or something.
