The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Boxing

    Boxing has always interested me, but I don't exactly know how to start out. What should I do to get started? It seems like a good form of exercise and stress relief.

    Lmao. Yeah, join a boxing gym! And go to www.rossboxing.com

    Yes, it's a good form of exercise and stress relief, and you learn to use your body in efficient ways. As a plus, the people in boxing gyms are a lot more dedicated than the average guy in a commercial gym. It's always good to be around dedicated people.

    Find a local gym ( Do NOT go to a weight lifting gym to learn boxing) get a passbook/license and get a amatuer fight set up after a couple of months of good hard sparring.

    Bump. If your un certain about actually wanting to fight, don't buy a passbook yet or until after you sparred a few good times. Boxing itself as far as training is great conditioning though but don't spend money getting a amatuer license until you know for sure you really wanna take a real fight.

    Anyone have any idea how much boxing is too much? My main goal is to get stronger and bigger, but I am planning on doing some boxing soon as well. I'd just like a good idea of what a good balance would be.
