Default Re: When to wear 16 oz gloves

THEN, I sparred lol.
I think I'm pretty quick, but between the MT wearing me out, the arms I worked earlier in the day and 16 oz gloves I haven't wore in months.. I felt like I was in quick sand. I don't really desire to compete at anything right now, just want to spar more, get a good workout, and self defense. Think I'll stick with shadow boxing bare hands a couple times a week, and when I hit the mits/ bag I'll use the 16s right now. Train for a few weeks, and then go back and spar again once I get my cardio up a bit and use to the 16s. Thanks for all the advice.
you really should spar freash...sounds like a gym were they dont know **** (well not totally fresh, warmed up a bit..but not worn out). I could see sparring at some points when tired..just to get the experience..but for the most part.not a good idea.
