Being a very "natural" fighter, I'd go for cardio first, muscles second.

If you're training for MT, I'd suggest to go for neck, shoulder and abdomen as a priority, then go for the arms, back, etc.

The lower area like legs, etc, I'd recommend running. A lot. Do rope-jumping, running, sprinting.

In my opinion, if you have the option, go for swimming. It will be a lot milder on your body. No impacts will lead to longer "living" joints.

Another thing; Only work out 3 days a week. That's enough in my opinion. Monday, Wednesday, Friday you do weights. The rest of the week you just do cardio like running, swimming, etc. Sunday is YOUR day OFF. Take a break on that day.

Cord, my fellow moderator, is able to give you more insight into this as he is also a savate boxer and weight-trainer. I think

Cool anymore suggestions is welcome!!!
I swam pretty much most of my life. But only on summer time because its too cold in winter time.
Also i work out everyday except sunday because i have nothing else to do after work, so i just weight lift. Deffintley gonna start jump romp. Btw my friend is in boxing and he is lighting fast. We used to play soccer together and he used to be the fastest guy on the team. His coach at boxing used to train with tito ortiz for ufc (his name is tony V) and he told him in just 2 months of training he is already better than him because of his speed. What workouts can i do to get as fast as I possibly can get? I feel like one day i will face him in the ring because he weighs as much as me. I deff have more power than him though
Its just speed im worrying about.

Yeah lifting heavy 3 days in a row isn't a good idea. When you are resting is when your body is growing. Are you trying to fight in the ring? If so in the land of fighting conditioning is king. Work on your conditioning and everything else comes next. I like to do my Squats on fridays so I have all weekend to rest.

Simple. Get educated.

I usually emphasize 3 things; Economy of motion, Precision & Accuracy and finally plyometrics.

Economy of motion is to only move enough to get out of the way, but at the same time not wasting any energy.

Precision and Accuracy is when you're dodging blows, you can land a very accurate at a weak point.

Plyometric. Name says it all. Do it, or forget combative MA as a whole.

Which I doubt. Yes, it he might look weaker but looks are often deceptive. If you want to get somewhere in boxing, never train expecting anything. You must always imagine you're inferiour in both skill, strength, stamina and speed in order to prevail. I'd say, if you do want to beat him, focus on your strength and accuracy. Hitting often but softly can't compare to hitting hard once and knock out.

Training for boxing/kickboxing/MT is all about the mind. Imagine every training session as a preparation for a title match. That way, you'll see a lot more difference in the long term than working out just for "fitness".

He looks way stronger than me.
Im more bulky as he is more cut.
He only has been training in 2 months time now. He says that when I start training he would stop, wait for me to train for 2 months and still be better than me.
Just like you said he judges me by the cover.
When I said im stronger than him I didnt mean by the way we look, but by the way I weight lift compared to him
