Andre Berto too. Always fighting is spurts. Now compare that to Aaron Pryor or Joe Frazier, this guys bodies didn't look half as nice, but could throw punches for days. Henry Armstrong, Joe Louis... the list goes on and on
is this good? I'm actually trying to get back into lifting weights, because I do body weight exercises now also, but I'm to the point where I can do 10+ one arm pushups and 10+ jumping pistol squats and I need to add more difficulty
