shadow box for four rounds and see if this doesnt happen, if your biceps stiffen up just shadow boxing imagine what they will do in sparring I just dont recomend weight lifting at all.
WTF are you talking about? Your arms get stiff after weight training? This will only happen if you don't stretch regularly and follow a strict bodybuilding routine. True, you run the risk of getting injured but guess what? You run the same risk walking to the grocery store. Weight-lifting is perfectly fine. 30-45min 3 times a week really isn't that much. Just don't reject the rest of your conditioning and you'll be perfectly fine.
