Got to do the best with what youve been given!!!!
Thanks for the reply, your knowledge and information is very helpful. I totally agree with your comments about being a boxer who thinks ' i can do that'. I must agree ive actually trained with people like that, thats pure ignorance. I have done a little bit of very light, stand up wrestling to help with my body strength for boxing. and i am not neive enough to say that its easy. Quite the opposite actually, theres so many stabilising muscles involved its extreamly tiring.
I am aware of this, and i want to be the best striker i could be, ive seen fighters who are predominantly strikers,who gassed from striking, who i thought, god if he could just do anything else....phil baroni comes to mind!!!
I am already working on increasing my strength and close striking, can you give me any drills, tips which i could practice on my own. Like i said the main problem for me is that there are no gyms available around my area which cater for such a sport so i have to make do with what ive got till i find one!
I have actually got a very well equipped gym, weights wise, at home. lots of machines tonns of free weights, so again if you can tell me what im currently doing resistance wise is on the correct lines?
I know, what would i do for a few more inches!!! But like i said youve got to do the best with what god gave you!! I am however a pretty solid 185 lbs. Ive never had my bodyfat % tested or anything like that but ive got a visible set of abs, so im not sure what that makes me...15% maybe?? I have bench pressed 3x45s on and olympic bar as a 1 rep max before, but i dont usually go that high I prefer to stay in the moderate to high rep ranges around the 225-250lbs range!
Also how much cardio would you be doing per week?
Another big problem for me is that Im at work everyday from 8-6 which doesnt leave me too much time to train!
thanks again, any info from anyone would be much appreciated.
