    What do you guys think, should you lift weights for boxing or not? If so how, how many reps, what kind? Mass building exercises like squats and bench, or isolation exercises?

    i need to decide if i should or not, ive been told you should do just calisthenics by the gym trainer, but hes an old timer and might not be as informed and with the times.

    Calisthenics is all you need for boxing.
    If you want to weight lift, go ahead. It wont make you bulky if you don't over eat.
