First Irish is right… too many boxers moved up in weight and lost their KO power.
its a moot point as to how to develop a trait you may or may not have KO power,
can you develop explosive power- sure but there are many ways to skin a cat.
and we go in circles here.
two- this is a weight lifting site that has a combat sports section-
so you are going to get catalog ninja- or big strong dude to answer your questions
ask a power lifter he is going to tell you one thing , ask a body builder they are going to tell you another.
and thats fine too.
ask a catalog ninja he is going to refer you to his training long on sherdog that one not so much.
I did it for a living- so to speak.
wrestling paid for school a free trip to the OTC in colorado to get smothered in someones armpit for a few weeks, got the free sneakers, free trips free cups to pee in, and a free jock.
I went to foreign lands of Canada ,Chekrepublic and other lands so alien like michigan or Ohio, where turks and Iranians used my body to wipe their sweat. In Ohio and Michigan I just had kids beat on me.
all paid for and if you think thats not work, think again.
kids to take my tests in class, dudes to drive me to the gig.
cause if you are driving yourself to the gig, your a weekend warrior type and thats ok.
Now wrestling is not MMA but I can tell you about over training
it happens not to bodybuilders but to fighters or wannabes training on a calorie deficit.
Actually deficit isnt close.
go train for 3 to 6 months 6 days a week on 1200 calories and you tell me you wont hurt like hell,
your teeth with hurt your feet are rotting bones.
your shoulders and hips are on fire all day. your neck too for that matter.
Your gobbling asprin by the cosco sized bottle, you might poo once a week, and your dry, dry like a frog in the hot sun and your eyes will turn yellow.
oh and the rashes- bruises take a long time to go away when your eating like this Par for the course in
NCAA and beyond.
your waiting to eat your “meal” of a lime, and you can not fucking wait to eat it trust.
and you are dreaming of eating something like a pat of butter.
do your big road work, your hills your 3 hours of rolling or what ever,burpees and pull ups til you puke.
ride your exercise bike in your plastics and tell me your gonna bench tonight or cycle in some heavy other work or “retain” your strength with just big sets of 3x3
the scale is pressure, your patners are pressure shit your coach had better be pressure.
fear had better be pressure
and that other guy on the matt with you , you know he is bringing the fucking pressure.
and there is "friendly"from people who want their investment in you like the acedemic dean
or admissions dude, or the “tutor”
Now lets put this in to perspective with a more normal life-
technique conditioning iron
find time for them all
get it down to two to three hard hours in the gym a week and that is plenty
my advice, go look up prelipin’s Table for your set rep scheme
do a day of squat/deadlift a day of pushpress/bench a unilateral day
lift big, rest more.
