Default Re: weight lifting...why such different views on it in boxing???????

The old timers would tell ya, that it makes you too stiff, example. When doing sets of curls, do you ever notice how your arms swell up and get tight?

Now when you add that to your training, then go in to fight, as soon as you start moving them hands and throwing shots, your arms tighten up like that, which often can leave you to not bringing your hand back up all the way cus that arm is sort of pumped, in addition with your arm swelling up like that, it does slow you down...

But some fighters manage lifting so I really dont know... what I can tell you is my experience, we were never to do curls and such, just squats and bench pressing everything else came from Floor work, dips sit ups etc...
