The ATG fighter's didnt need no stinkin' Strength and conditioners
Are S&C coaches that neccessary? I mean I don't believe Chavez sr, Duran, Arguello, marciano, Robinson had any Alex Arisa types around in their days. Sure I agree the strength and conditioning is important, but I dont think they are essential for a beginning 4rd fighter.
A beginner should work primarily on his skills, any good coach can train a kid to go four rds. I have been told that when you have an S&C coach the fighter has to go do his S&C work first then he does the boxing, that it burns the kid out with too much work, any thoughts?
