A friend of mine is boxing in a charity event, and I’ve started training with him. It’s the first real fitness I’ve done in a few years ( still can’t run after knee injury ), and my knee feels ok with it so I’d like to keep it up at least for the next 8 weeks.
With my 5/3/1, I’m doing the basic program from the 5/3/1 book. Basically main lift, 1 main assistance then another secondary assistance and finishing with some knee rehab stuff and also farmers walks ( I just love them, and find them great for grip strength ).
I plan on getting 2-3 boxing sessions in a week when I can ( shift work ). They’re pretty high intensity and finish with at least a few rounds of sparring, so I was wondering if I should stick to just the main lifts during the next 8 weeks while I’m doing the boxing.
Once it’s done I’d like to keep the training up, but more so just for fitness, twice a week.
Any thoughts ?
