I had a Tae Kwon Do guy ask me about getting fit when he was preparing for a tournament he had coming up, I told him about a hill nearby that I was sprinting on the weekends and said he should come along. He asked me if that would work his quads, because he thought his quads needed more work. I told him he'd find out on Monday morning.
yep having done a lot of bjj
yes you have a lot of lazy types like that
but you also have guys that are gym rats
but yeah its not just boxing that suffers that this way of thinking
but the pure hatred of weights(remember anything to do with weights is BODYBUILDING) is most severe in old school boxing coaches...
what they tell you is
"hey did ray robinson use any bull**** S&c coach
NO HE DIDNT
when you answer well he never fought anyone that
did, so you answer cancels itself out
you get a blank look
