    Lifting heavy weights is not good for a boxer. You want to leave your muscles as light as possible for optimal punching power. And by as light as possible I mean only go as far as scientifically possible. If you talk to a physician about weight lifting, they would tell you there is only so much weight human muscles should have. There is a thing, scientifically, speaking, where your muscles can be too big and it doesn’t take much to surpass that limit.

    Ask Tim Bradley how much did his weight lifting help his punching power. But then you see skinny, lanky boxers blasting guys out of there.

    ”How about Paulie Malignaggi?”. Paulie injured his hand very early in his career and his punching power was never the same due to the injury.

    Also, not saying that all skinny fighters can punch and all muscular fighters can’t punch. Just saying punching power has nothing to do with heavy weightlifting.

      A lot of reps of a light weight is to get ripped/shredded as opposed to getting big. In boxing, you want to be physically ripped/shredded. Getting “big” at the lighter weights will just harm you.

          Yeah, these guys are not heavyweights. Adding a few pounds of muscle isn't going to help his punching power, it's just going to push him into another weight class unnecessarily. Lower reps give him the workout without trying to add anything.

            This is the correct answer - which is why so many training for speed use bands or other ways to control the resistance so they don't over bulk.

              Yeah andre berto was pretty jacked and he tore and pull his biceps three times. Too much muscle is not good for throwing fluid shots

                Even for bigger fighters tons of muscles don't help. Anthony Yarde looked huge and ripped but he gassed out after the 3rd round against Kovalev

                  Look what Canelo is doing at the 2:00 mark:

                      The bar weighs 25-45 pounds....

                      And speed kills, not power.
