Not in the sense that bodybuilders or powerlifters do. Sometimes i use 2 or 3 kg weights while punching to train for arm weariness and perhaps a bit of speed and power, but never anything heavier than that. Hitting the heavy bag, or better, padwork, makes me feel i gain/train a lot more explosive punching power.

They amuse me. They are quite photogenic and am praying to come across one where they are pumping iron

I lift quite a bit, more then I box actually. I lift weights 4 times a week and box twice a week. I'm not for or against either way, this is just what works for me. I do an hour of cardio and stretching then an hour of weights, arms on monday, back on wednesday, chest on friday and legs on sunday.

I box 3 times a week plus 2 other cardio workouts and at the moment try to lift heavy weights just the once a week on saturdays. I used to lift 4 times aswell as this but felt I was over training especially when doing bodyweight excersizes and medicine ball work during the boxing workout.

I do both but with boxing unless its padwork or sparring I get very bored and same with lifting weights ill start a routine for a few days and soon give up. I much perfer to workout with a partner or a coach.

Unless your boxing workout isn't that thoroughly, your body must be sore and exhausted 24/7 with that schedule.

I know cardio is better for my weight loss programme but I just don't enjoy doing it. I love lifting weigts so that's what il stick to. I've been thinking about implimenting a cardio session each week though.
