    I'm a bit on the fleshy side. Would I be a better fighter if I had less body fat or does it matter? I happen to notice some of the lean & hard fighers do a little better in the sparring and the fights. I'm natural stocky and fleshy, like a human bulldog. Should I be happy with myself?

    YOU FAT DISGUSTING PIG!!!!! (oh wait thought you were Anthony!!! Sorry my bad)

    It all depends on how effeceintly your body works. You don't have to look like something out a muscle mag to be good (those guys are mostly for show anyways) but you should be at a good BF % so you can have could stamina and recovery time.

    If your stamina and all that is good, then the only real non-aesthetic reason for trimming the fat would be that leaning down a little can make you a bit faster. Also, leaning down will enhance your stamina just a bit as you'll have less baggage to carry around.

    Tong Po-
    Its simple logic dude.
    Fat = weight.
    When moving around, the more fat you have on you, the more weight you have to move, and the more energy you have to burn to do it.

    You don't have to have a six pack (most heavyweights don't - they don't need to cut weight) but too much fat can drag down your performance.

    Its also easier on your joints to be leaner, especially when doing high impact work.

    There there AA. My remarks are just a way to veil my overwhelming jealously. Now that you brought it to light I will go and take deeper look at myself and how I can tame the little green monster within.

    Jenfucious hit the nail on the head. The best reason to be concerned about a little fat, as a fighter, is thinking about what weight class you'll be in. Losing 10 pounds of lard probably won't affect your power or endurance or much of any thing if you drop from 185 to 175. But then, if a particular tounament's heavyweight class is 176 lbs. and up... Would you rather fight 160-175 pounders when you weigh 175 or fight 200 pounders when you weigh 185?

    OTOH, if you don't compete, you might be stronger at 185.
