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.
I agree. I have tried weights multiple times. For the past 4 months I had been doing power lifts, only compound exercises, no machines, and I stretched. It didn't have any benefits, really, and eventually I was adding mass, which was affecting my stamina.
I'm not against weights, they just don't really work for me.
