    Well of course it will. But you cant explain to some people, they immediately think that by just going to the WL gym you will magically know how to box as Mike Tyson.

    1. If you have a chance to get some insights from about four or five boxers who have had a high level of success at a high level of competition and they are all in agreement about weight lifting it might be wise to listen to what all of them are saying.

    2. One of the best strength and conditioning coaches IMO repeatedly says this: Train the body for how the body is going to be used-- If your brand of boxing is doing a few explosive moves then resting a few minutes then train that way. On the other hand, if your brand of boxing consists of fighting hard for 180 seconds per round once the bell rings you better train that way.

    3. The title of the thread is weightlifting for boxing, not "strength training for boxing", so impuning my reading comprehension skills may not be your best argument.

    It's easier for people to believe that about you. Especially if they bother to look at the links to the info I have posted.

    The problem with weights is it can screw your posture if not done very carefulky and thats if it isnt already screwed, it can be addictive and start replacing more important training. also a lot of traditional weight movements dont work the body as it should, at all.

    Also doing a periodisation like this and breaking up workouts into seperate sessions for each component of fitness like naximal strength and RFD and muscular endurance etc often is very time consuming and means spending more time in gyms doing single workouts that have hardly any effect on boxing skills. Not very motivating for the athlete to train with more frequency to be worse at their sport, bad economy.

    The smarter trainer will get all components of fitness worked WHILE doing boxing specific movement patterns. Thus their boxer does more rounds during same amount of time with less hours in the gym and in a more sport specific approach.

    Strength training? Lol. No. I suppose it could be if he has the strength of a young child.

    What was that silly jumping from side to side on the BOSU ball while pressing 5kg weights overhead? Lol.

    I imagine he has a better perspective of what it's like to be in a boxing contest than you do.

    One day you'll make a relevant post and actually reply with a decent argument. Until that day comes you look like somebody who really isn't very bright.
