    Default Boxing and Gaining Mass

    Dear Forum,

    I would like to get some educated help concerning building muscle and boxing at the same time?

    I tried to surf the internet about it but did not find any reliable source


    About me :

    My height is 184 cm and I weight 73 kg. I also box 3 times( mn, wd, fr ) per week and my boxing session is around 2 hours and contains decent amount of cardio, punching, jumprope etc.

    I train boxing for 3 years already, but I have always wanted to put on more weight WHILE boxing.

    Basically my main goal is to add 10-12 kg of muscle to my bodyweight. Preferably until month of june or july 2013.

    I found this website extremely interesting and educating. And i hope this forum will help me, because I have not received any good advice on my topic anywhere else.

    My boxing trainer said that it is fine to combine it but I should be carefull not to overtrain myself. However he is totally profound in bodybuilding.

    My question is it possible? Or should I give up boxing for my goal? Will boxing slow down my muscle growth? Is 2 days of bodybuilding is enought for muscle gain? I have so many question which I want to ask. Of course I try to do the research by myself but there is so much information that I need to digest that I think my braing will blow up.

    Thank you!

    You will not have to give up boxing, I do MMA/BJJ 2-3 times a week along with weights 3-4 times a week and still put on mass. Its just a matter of getting enough calories in to make your body grow as obviously boxing will burn a lot.

    I would recommend doing weights 3-4 times a week and upping your calories a lot. A good weight gainer shake will help and is easy to have for breakfast every day (Is what I do). Check out westside barbell's built like a badass routine or Westside for skinny bastards. It involves a lot of strength/plyometric work and is not a standard bodybuilding routine so it is effective for athletes too.

    I train to be an athlete not a bodybuilder
