    Workout Help

    I been plannin on lifting weights and practicing boxing over this summer. I already been doing weight lifting, i got into my boxing, but i dont know if im doing it right. Heres my schedule.



    I do a boxing workout before every weight lifting session.



    1.)Abdominal stuff


    2.)Core stuff


    3.)Punching Bag stuff



    Then i do this for each day.



    Mondy - Chest, and Tricep's


    Tuesday - Bicep, and Forearms


    Wednesday - Break


    Thursday - Shoulders, Neck, and Forearms


    Friday - Legs


    Weekend - Break



    Im just wondering if im doin it right, And if i am, how should i do the reps and sets?



    Dont post hate up here. I looked over the internet, and some say to do this, and some say to do that. So i just wanna know how to do it from someone thats actually done it and had it work for them.

If the most you can curl is 50 lbs, that is you max. So to build mass, you would do 6-9 42 lbs curls for three sets. This is off memory from what I learned years ago so it might not be 100% accurate.

    All good. I was actually on a different topic with the rest of my post. I thought you were pretty close with the info though. YOu know more then i did until i talked to a personal trainer. LOL. And my info isn't first hand. Its from a boxer that i knew briefly. He got knocked out in the 3rd round of his first pro fight after he blew off workouts though so i can't vouche for how accurate they are.

    are you counting punching bag for cardio or where does that fit in? just make sure that you're switching up the exercises that you do with weight lifting. the body is a crazy thing and if you're doin the same shit everytime, you aren't going to get the results you'd like. I have no experience with training for boxing but i've done weight lifting courses quite a few times. good for you on this shit man, that's what's up. do work, son

    Co sign on the switching it up. When i talked to a personal trainer he said he switches the work outs AT LEAST every month. Most of the time every week or two cause your muscles grow memory and it doesn't stress them to do the same thing over and over. Am i right jackie or did i get some bad info. I didn't do it cause fuck the work outs. LOL>
