Which Plan for My Goal?


#1

Hello everyone,
I am doing the 531 with 4 mainlifts on 4 days i do the version to increase the weight after the first 3 weeks than go ok then 3 more weeks and then i do the deload week. On the days iam not training with the 531 iam boxing for 2 hours at a box club so i train 7 days a week. My dream and goal is too become a boxing pro. Now is my question how i should train to follow my goal?

The guys on the T nation combat forum would probably be able to give better advice and also look through there training logs as some use 5/3/1. In saying that I would have thought 2 days a week full body is the best option if boxing is your focus.

example
Squat 5/3/1
Bench 5/3/1
Assistance

Deadlifts 5/3/1
Press 5/3/1
Assistance

I read on the combat subforum that the priorities should be skills training, conditioning and strength training in that order. Training 4 days a week strength isn’t going to make you a better boxer compared to 2 days a week and then being able to train boxing 2 more days.

I highly doubt their would be too many pro boxers that strength train more than they train boxing. In fact the majority probably dont do a strength training program as such but focus more on boxing and conditioning.

Since boxing is a specialised skillset, and obtaining those skills is going to be more crucial to your success than your bench press numbers, you’re probably better of asking people who know boxing than a bunch of random weightlifting folks on the internet.

I thought your goal was to feel your pecs more while using dumbbells? Did your boxing coach tell you this?

I would speak with him about your training. All your work outside the ring needs to be coordinated with your work in the ring. He would know better than a bunch of not-pro boxers parading around the Internet as experts on everything.
