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?

    a boxers conditioning routine

    i have been lifting for about 2 years with advice from this forum. i am stronger and more lean than when i started. i also thought that i was fairly conditioned until i tried some conditioning workouts that boxers use (sledge hammer swings, burpees, snatches, jump rope, tabatta intervals...). these guys are super conditioned. by following some of these conditioning routines, would i hinder my chances for any significant size gains? i have posted on here in the past with problems of gaining size and the advice i got was to cut down on the cardio....thanks for any thoughts or opinions.

    If your priority is to be in condition for boxing then I don't understand why you need size. Size will not make you a better fighter. Training, practice, technique, and conditioning will. The conditioning workouts you listed seem appropriate to me for boxing conditioning. The websites listed below are good resources for boxing conditioning. You may already be familiar with them.
