    Will boxing training affect my recovery from lifting?

    Im trying to do 50 minutes of intense boxing training once a week, followed up by a long relaxing Epsom salt bath to relax the muscles

    Im going to load up on calories on that day, but will the training affect my ability to recover from weight lifting on the other days?

    My lifting routine looks like this


    Full body Tuesday
    Full body Thursday
    Full body Saturday

    Where would you put boxing in to where it wont conflict too much with your recovery?

    You don't say "intense boxing", it cannot be non-intense. As a boxer, you would probably be thinking more like, "where to fit lifting and how much of lifting so it doesn't affect my boxing".

    Are you doing "box fit" cardio? Or you train as a boxer, like learning skills, pads, sparring etc? At any rate, 50 minutes once a week is nothing, you can fit it anywhere, next day, same day, right after etc. A bit of a problem when you box after leg days, but since you are doing full body it shouldn't be a problem. it is fundamentally different from lifting, so it really doesn't affect recovery, actually helps recovery a little bit.

    You're just doing cardio boxing lmao you can do that anytime, including after lifting weights.

    If you are actually sparring come back for actual advice on programming for combat sports.

    It’s just 1 to 1 training with a coach that involves mainly pad and bag work, throwing combos and bobbing

    I do squats and Romanian deadlifts on 2 days in the week, then heavy leg press and curls on the other day, I’ll probably train on the Monday

    I’m not doing it for the cardio lmao, I’m on a 600 calorie deficit.

    I don’t need to do any sparring at the moment, when I first started out it helped me to see my weaknesses whilst building my confidence, but at the moment I’m only doing boxing to just keep myself accustomed to the sport

    Box fit training, do what you want.

    Real boxing, seriously consider doing weights or boxing depending on how intense your class is. Getting punched is a whole different ball game.

    I'm thai boxer of 4.5 years and I've dabbled with doing weights and thai boxing at the same time and I end up having terrible recovery time and couldn't balance the two because would always be banged and sore for weight lifting. When bulking, I temporarily ditched thai and focused on weights. When cutting, I abandoned weights and increased thai classes. Combining the two is difficult.

    Boxing may be different though because it's just hands and face and you might escape with sore arms and a fat lip but with thai, we had clinches, knees, leg kicks and full power roundhouses to deal with which needed at least 2 days recovery time, trying to force weights in while your arms are bruised and your body is aching from clinch sparring was difficult. So the bottom line is, it depends on how intense your class is.

    The answer is yes
