You ain’t strangling anyone, breh.

Chill with the dramatics.

I came here seeking advice because I have very specific questions I need answered and I have to train as smart as possible, with few mistakes, to stay in good condition as a boxer.

Don’t take it there.

Off-topic:
I wasn't being dramatic, random coli dude that obviously doesn't know me like that.

I've gotten into fights at commercial gyms for less than that. But think it's a game or that I won't "take it there" if you want. :rudy:



On-topic:

I already answered your questions and told you what was up, but you didn't like those answers so you asked again thinking the results wouldn't be the same.

You think this is the first time I answered these questions? You think you're a genetic anomaly that's gonna somehow specialize in two or three things at once while disobeying basic laws like conservation of matter and thermodynamics? Cool, you got it champ. Good luck getting off of injured reserve, word to the lil homie @Gully Bull. :francis:

Frustrated about what? :what:

It’s a forum, breh. He could’ve skipped over the thread if it was that big of a deal.

Y’all act as if I came in here spamming or something. Taking it personal as fukk. :dead:

I read the program and I also saw several variations of it (ICF, MadCow, etc.) so logically I might think it may make sense to tailor it to my specific needs, but even then I’m more than willing to actually stick to the program.

I’m not in here trying to waste anyone’s time. But, I’ll just consult my coach.

Sorry for wasting your time. :hubie:
I didn't think anyone was taking anything personal. You asked a question that if you truly read through the program would have answered it for you. Once again, the program is very specific. There's even a section called common mistakes and the second topic is changing the workout :comeon: . You haven't even started the program and already want to change it. That's like someone who has never boxed before, coming into the gym and saying I'm going to skip all that beginner stuff and just start sparring. You might not respond the same way that @Son Goku did but you would definitely look at them funny. So why would you approach weight lifting that way?

Because he is making the mistake 95% of people make me included...... in not looking at lifting weights as an activity that requires practice amd training in and of itself but instead thinking it is "just lifting something heavy" and a brain dead motion to go through.

It's because most people let their ego get the best of them which is why so many end up getting themselves hurt :francis:

Now you understand why so many people have dog shyt form.
Think of all the folks that won't even step in the rack or Smiff machine. :hubie:

Now imagine how many of the folks that do actually followed a beginner program that gave them everything they needed (and for free) on a silver platter, all they had to do was follow instructions, eat, and put in effort.

Squatting isn't fun for most folks, and using proper form is harder and reigns your ego in more.

Most folks that show up to the average gym ain't really bout that life. :youngsabo:

Y'all see it.

Dude is really just a boxer looking to put on some muscle. Funny, cause the coli told me boxers only did calisthenics and didn't need to lift weights. :troll:


Anyone who's ever done SL 5x5 and done it properly knows that six hours of boxing shyt on the side plus off day accessory work sounds like a way to burn out quickly and possibly snap your shyt up.


Dudes really think weightlifting (and strength training in general) are things you can just add on top of what you're already doing and your body will just be like "cool, we got you :obama: ".

Takes more effort on my end to debate back and forth over semantics rather than drop the link and keep it moving.

If any of these clowns were serious they’d just google some shyt like “fitness 5x5”, “sl 5x5”

:manny:
Or read the many posts/threads on here discussing it. Crazy how people will complain about this forum and say we don't help yet they can't be bothered to read any of the sticky threads or use the search function:gucci:

Why do you want to put on mass as a boxer? It’s unorthodox to want to be going up in relation to weight for boxing?

Those that do go up weight as boxers (usually professionals) are doing so for the financial windfalls that the heavier weight classes provide (lighter weight classes less popular with the masses.)

Those same boxers (professional) that go up in weight, tend to have the added benefit of dieticians, strength & conditioning coaches, rest and recovery, and most importantly, peformance enhancing drugs.

Point out a champion boxer to me that has gone up in weight and I can guarantee you they take a cocktail of drugs to do so. I’ll prove it too.

My point being that it is difficult to go up in weight as a boxer. Age is the major ‘natural’ determinant in weight gain if you’re an active boxer.

If you’re really, really serious about boxing and wanting to put on weight then my advice is to get a strength and conditioning coach and plan it out with them.

If you can’t afford it then work out a way to afford it.

I’m not a “serious” competitor. I spar a lot in my gym and have had fights, but they didn’t require a weigh-in. It’s just more of a hobby, so gaining weight is fine.
