Thought i'd make a log to keep track of my progress and some of the more experience guys can critique and give me tips. Ill post videos once and a while.I started boxing about a month ago. At the moment im doing 4-5 times a week and weightlifting 3 times a week with a focus on performance.

This is what i do at the weight lifting gym today:

Bench Press(ramping up to a 3-5 rep max)

bar x 108
65 x 5
95 x 5
115 x 5
135 x 5
155 x 5
165 x 3(i did 4 but my spotter touched so i wont count it)

Explosive Pushups
3 x failure . consentrating on exploding up as hard as i can .

Cable Russian Twist- explosive with these
35 x 8
35 x 8
40 x 8

Rear Delt Fly Machine 3 x 15

Pushdowns 3 x 15 super set Hammer Curls 3 x 10

Since you are doing boxing 4-5 times per week and are lifting for performance, I would recommend dropping a few exercises such as the rear delt fly machine. Instead of pushdowns, do pull-ups.

Also, most find enough room for strength gain and recovery if they lift 2 times per week. Do you squat, deadlift, and overhead press? Are you boxing for self-defense or competition?

Yeah the main biglifts im concentrating on are Bench Press,Squat, and the One Arm Landmine Push Press.I would add deadlifts but they bother my lower back after a while. 3 Days doesn’t seem to interfere with my recovery as im eating a ton.

I’m also trying to add weight too. At the moment im weighing 163 and want to get up to around 170-172 by the end of the year thats why i added little bit more exercises to induce some muscle growth. I’m boxing with the intent of competing.
