How old are you?
Do you have any experience with weight training, if so how much?
What weight do you walk around at?

There's a lot of factors that come into play here...

I don't think you should do weights now, so close to your fight. Weights can get you injured when performed wrong so wait with experimenting till after your KO win

left right right good luck brother

I've never done much lifting ever. If I did any, it was small weights with high reps. You dont want to get your muscles big, because then it makes it harder to protect your body. If you do light weights with high reps, it will make your muscles more solid.

I am fighting at featherweight, but will be moving up to lightweight or even jr. lightweight after the gloves.

So my suggestion would be that if you are going to lift, just to light weights. Or even shadow boxing with small weights is fine.
