“He may make muscle density, and muscle endurance gains, but I do not think he can build strength with purely/mostly bodyweight exercises.”
Muscle endurance is my real goal. Your arms and shoulders get fatigued very quickly when boxing. Hitting a heavy bag is easy, much different when someones throwing punches and your whole body is moving for several rounds.
By bodyweight exercices, i mean I do about 250 pushups (varying types) three days a week and pull-ups (also varying types) on the same three days. I box 4 days and the bodyweight excercises follow the boxing workouts.
Then two days a week I get into a regular gym to do interval work on the treadmill (I have a KILLER program I got from a pro boxer if anyone wants it.) I follow with ab/core exercises, usually four different types, and then hit the iron. I do 2 sets of 10 reps hammer curls, 2 sets 21’s for bi’s. Nothing for back or chest because I hit that with the push/pull ups.
One day a week I squat b/c you have to. You’d be surprised how exhausted your legs get bouncing around and your toes while drawing power for your punches from the legs.
Thats basically it. Mega Men MV 2 times a day, Glucosamine/Chond 3 times a day and tribbulus terrestris three times a day. I have creatine and started taking 5g one hour prior to training but my trainer says it may put on too much weight. My trainer weighed me in at 197.5 lbs with 13% br this morning, first thing with no food or water. I’m 6’ 1".
With all that (sorry so long) what do you guys think I could gain from 100mg 1-AD taken 3 times a day for 20 days, or same dosage for 10 days, 5 off than another 10? If I take it, should I eliminate the tribbulis?
My fight is 4/2, and my coach wants me to come in at 178. Probably impossible because you weigh in 1 hour before the fight, so no cutting. Ideas or opinions?
