So... if a troll isn't funny, then, what kind of troll does he make?
Buy a barbell, which weighs about 45 pounds. Buy a couple of plates a month and after a year or so you will have enough weights to do most things.
Two 2.5 pound plates
Four 5 pound plates
Two 10 pound plates
Two 25 pound plates
As many 45's you need to do whatever weight you are at.
Get a pair of 30 or 35lbs dumbbells and start pressing.
Why is that better than using my heavy bag (39lbs) to lift?
Because both of your arms are pressing equal weight at all times. I’m just trying to help you, not everything requires deep thought. Getting good at perfect form military pushups will help as well.
But that's not the issue. I was ridiculed for lifting too light weights, and now you suggest even less. Who am I to believe?
Two 35# dumbbells weigh more than one 39# heavy bag.
Still just 35lbs per arm.
....but 35 per arm, is > 39 for both arms. Not hard math man lol.
If you want to get stronger, pick an excercise. And progressively add more weight. It's not rocket science. If you actually WANT to get stronger, and you work towards it you will. If you don't? Well you'll stay weak and constantly wonder which program you should be on, and why that program didn't work for you.
Jesus spacetime is trolling the S&C forum now? This guy is a known troll in the standup forum.
Spacetime is the new Dake
Ah ok that makes sense. I was wondering why he’s so weird.
Check out his threads in the standup forum if you want a chuckle.
Seems like he forms his opinion. Then waits for comments/suggestions and challenges you.
“A gym instructor told me that longer repetitions with small weights will build enduring muscles, which what I am looking for in boxing. Not big ones. And 39lbs is small weights”
Sounds like you already know the answers lol..why ask us?
Your arms and shoulders aren’t getting tired because of lack of strength..they are getting tired because of lack of endurance..gaining muscle won’t help that ,in fact it would hinder it in the long run.
I liked 5 pound weights in each hand, And shadow box with them in sprints .
I was wondering if the weight was too light
