i think swimming is good for loosing weight, while not burning muscles.

yeah, i am uneducated in that area so it may sound strange, but i think you know what i mean

Swimming is good for recovery and aiding breathing but it's not going to get you in any sort of shape for boxing. Cycling would be far better than swimming as well, not as good as running as you're not on your feet and you don't contract as much muscle (so VO2 will be lower) but still far more beneficial then swimming.

You always seem to follow me around an nit-pick at my posts. You have issues.

You gotta compensate that somehow. Yea, for cardio it is quite ok, also helps avoid knee problems from running


Is it because the amino acid receptors will block protein synthesis in your arms causing you to go into ketosis?


It seems you're well versed in broscience

I have said my piece and do not wish to discuss the matter any further.

Good day to you sir.

Wlad swims because a 245 pound man shouldn't be running like Marciano did. (Your knees don't like 245 pounds of weight)

Alternatively you can get a treadmill with a lot of cushion and put it on a 1-2 degree slope.
(You need the slope because running on a treadmill takes less energy, and the slope makes it harder again)

Treadmills give a imbalance in the Legs mechanics.

How would wrestling be for cardio?

I mean the kind where you just push each other out of a ring, or off a matt.

I remember when I was wrestling some guy in school and we had to push each other off a matt.
But he was around twice as heavy as I was, so pushing him off the matt was nearly impossible.
Meanwhile I was much too quick for him to push me off the matt.(Every time I was nearly pushed off I just got back in the middle)

It was one of the most tiring things I'd ever done.

Did that myself years ago, we do it now and again. I think its good, Hands on Elbow and Shoulder for 20 secs pushing, then Shadow Box 20 secs throwing Combos. Great for Conditioning .
