    Hi Joe,

    I was wondering how a person would go about gaining muscle for a sport.
    For example boxing, would I use techniques such as not stacking the joints during a dumbell bench press to keep a constant moment arm?
    Or would I stack the joints as this would be the action of a punch?
    Also Is there a need for isolation exercises when say building functional muscle specifically for a Sport?
    Thanks.

    Thanks Joe you cleared alot up for me there.
    So use the most efficient way to build muscle i.e your site and the most specific I should get is to focus on muscles that are used for my sport.

    One more question Joe.

    So would it matter if I trained unilateral or bilateral?

    Or again is it just focus on the most efficent way to build muscle bilaterally and keep my sports training seperate.
