    Ive signed up to my local boxing gym, while i also go to my uni gym and have been doing split body workouts since september, so since ill be doing alot of work at boxing sessions should i only go to my uni gym like once/twice a week and change to full body workout..? Because splitbody workout + boxing session seems a bit too tiring no..?

    Hey,

    Your muscle cells are broken down during weight training and need time to rest, recover and grow.

    Bearing this in mind, whatever you chose to do, make sure you get atleast a day of rest in between either of your workouts (weight or boxing). Otherwise, you won't benefit yourself.

    This is all assuming your getting atleast 7 hours sleep per night and eating properly for your aims.

    Any more questions, feel free to ask

    I do weights 4 times a week and boxing twice a week and I've been getting through it fine for the last few months, just don't do them on the same day, I did that once and slept for 15 hours afterwards

    I've stopped doing cardio apart from a bit of skipping at home since I do it at boxing, and it keeps my fat down, I was until like just recently gaining steadily, I lost a tiny amount of weight over christmas though, probably from not eating enough

    the first 30 mins of my boxing training is fitness work though, skipping, running, sprints etc, I dunno what your training consists of so I dunno if I should advise just quitting cardio like I did lol

    Hmmm you quit the cardio out of your boxing training?

    I'm currently 5,5 67kg, im joining boxing because i want to take the sport competively, since im short lol im gonna have to compete in the lower weight categories, hopefully somewhere 60-62kg (lightweight)...

    Aim is to compete around summer time when uni is finished for the year.

    I forgot to mention that in my OP, so basically i need a revised training schedule, which will allow me to cut down and maintain around the low 60kg mark.

    Arent you wasting time at gym if you lift for mass, then you do all this cardio at boxing, because its counter productive...?
    I'm kinda confuzzled thinking about that lol.....

    Just because you lift doesn't mean you have to cut out all cardio, that would be faintly ridiculous.

    atm I do probably... 90 mins cardio a week? Total? Doing 90 mins cardio a week isn't gonna be THAT counter productive to doing weights, I'm not doing cardio with the aim to "lose fat", I'm doing it for general health and fitness

    Its fine to do both if you eat enough tbh

    I'd be light heavyweight, I've only been boxing for a couple of months though I haven't had any competitive fights yet, I've got a hell of a lot to learn yet, maybe after 6 months and a **** load more sparring I'll be ready to fight lol
