I know that weights on your ankles don't build those. I was saying that the quick twitch muscle fibers is what allows you to run fast

If you're trying to build up endurance in your shoulders just hold you f*in arms up and punch whilst running. You don't need hand weights for that.

good stuff guys thanks, yea my notion was since holding weights while you shadow box seems to help speed, that the same would apply for your feet, besides, i figure it could only help since it is a resistence drill, if anything ive tried it and it has had a placebo effect on me! HAHAHHA
