    its just going to fuck you over in the long run when you realize muscle eats oxygen. The benefits of conditioning especially shoulder endurance, as well as rhythm enormously outweigh whatever strength gains you could achieve.

    the short answer to your question is low reps, high weight, high sets. Don't worry about going heavy at first, the key is to increase the weight progressively.

    i know that (i used to be a swimmer...alot of that applies to swimming as well) but im saying that as much as jump roping is needed so is muscle im not saying that im not gonna jump rope..cause im gonna im just saying you need to lift some...it helps provide the power so that you can hit harder

    not a fucking clue. If your comparing the importance of lifting to rhythem/conditioning exercises thats just ridiculous. Muscle isn't even the main source of power, the nervous system is. Which brings me to my next point- if you want power to hit harder you should be working on form first and then heavy bag drills.


    But you can get into that when you actually start training.

    I'll bet you a dollar that your trainer, if he's worth a shit, can help you with a lifting routine.

    explosive lifts will help you more than max effort lifts
