How do I incorporate weight training into my boxing training?

Question by Shannon Blackler: How do I incorporate weight training into my boxing training?
I want to add weight training into my boxing training; I only plan on designating 1 day a week for weight training. I want a complete body workout (upper body, core, legs). What workouts should I do for each section (all workout machines are available to me)? I do not want to use a barbell; I prefer controlled weights, dumbells, and the machines. Serious answers are well appreciated. Thanks

U can left weight but it must be light and high in reps. Shoulders chest and legs are ok. Don’t do bi’s or tri’s they will slow u down.

One day a week is not really enough. You should train at least 2 days a week to see any benefit. Even if you only train for 30 minutes twice a week doing a complete workout.
Barbells and dumbells are also much better than controlled machines. Using controlled weights can lead to injuries, trust me. Although now and again won’t hurt.
Go to for great tips, routines and advice.
Hope this helps.
