The only time lifting weights aids in punching strength is if youre putting on massive weight with it. I said that all on the first page.
Skill comes into play when you know how to be in balance, shift your weight, time your body for the most powerful punch you can throw. Which, if youre contracted from lifting heavy weights, you cant do to the fullest extent.
I dont feel like googling anything for you so I'm sure you can just google what I said and find it on your own. Its been said countless times, even in Jack Dempseys 1950's book, Bruce Lee's, the excellent Ross Enamait books, and countless other places.
So when youre complaining about people here discouraging about weights or not giving two cares, then thats your problem and nobody really is going to care because fighters dont necessarily need to lift weights.
This is fighting and skill, not looking cute. You come here to primarily talk about looking cute then youre going to bump heads.
Do you actually believe this bullsh*t?
Who is your trainer? Seriously, he needs to be put down.
