    Anyone on here do this? Reason I’m asking as I’m boxing 3 x a week and want to get some extra training in but don’t really want to lift weights.

    Have done loads and still do now. Biggest positives is that your joints feel good and your moving your body through space so recruiting lots of muscle groups working together.
    Lots of compounds and variations are body weight.
    Chins dips single leg squats ghr back extensions push ups handstand push-ups inverted rows. Stick with this core grouping and you will be fine

    Do you do full body workouts when you train like that?

    Apart from chin-ups and dips nothing really but they are super beneficial to my elbows and shoulders.
    All niggles seem to have gone with regular training so would recommend.
    Also why not train weights for boxing dude?

    Will I really benefit from weights? Like how many sets x reps should I be doing?

    Yes I have done. So for example the other week I did dips and inverted rows on rings. Paired. Then did single leg squats and hamstring curls on sliders on the carpet. 4 sets of each.

    zero reason to not do weight training its retarded and 1960s advice

    incorporate into cardio so using sleds/prowlers, battle ropes , tyre flips

    deadlifts have very good carry over to over all strength - just care on the shoulder stuff as constant forward rotation means your rear delts can under work so some pulling is good , and some direct rear delt work

    if it massively impacts your boxing then no , but if only boxing a few days a week wont be an issue IMO
