Soo i've played football (not the americunt version) for a long time and the end is near. What /fit/ approved sport should I start or recommend a gym routine
I say that as a boxer/MMA fanboy. Gym first. Strong Lifts or Starting Strength as a beginning routine. Start MMA/boxing when you hit all intermediate on http://symmetricstrength.com/
I would recommend that you investigate rowing. It is nearly impossible to get injured doing it and it's a constant full body work out. Plus you get to race other people and hang out in a boat all the time.
I wouldn't recomend MMA at all, especially the lower MMA guys, are those guys that simly want to get a bloody nose once a week. There isn't really more to it.
Boxing is a good thing but even then, I would recomend something with more technique fields.
There is no reason not to start a MMA/ boxing class with the Gym.
It mostly depends
Nice mixture of skill and strength, applicable to real fighting, proper sparring in lessons and doesn't involve getting punched in the head.
This has got to be the most pants on head retarded advice I've seen on here.
Strength is not a prerequisite to MMA or boxing, it helps but it should be seen as a supplement to Combat sports, not something you should fo before trying it out.
The time he spends trying to get to a completely arbitrary strength level could have been spent trying to learn the foundations of MMA, he can work on strength while doing MMA.
Technique beats Strength
Speed beats technique
Timing beats speed
Stop with the bullshit that if you just drill technique all day you will be good. Look at TKD faggots, practicing synchronized dance moves all day, they have beautiful technique. Drop them in the ring with a good boxer and see what happens.
>playing fairy foot
Well, you replied to the anon telling OP not to fall for the lifting meme. Lifting weights won't do shit for your boxing as a newb desu
If one wants to start boxing, he should just fucking go to practice fullstop
>not playing the real gentleman's sport
For real though its like you guys are trying to not make it.
