A lot of boxing trainers are ignorant though unfortunately:
"Coach, I've been doing *insert beneficial training method*"
"Na **** that, just run every day"

What is lost in most of these discussions is context and as I mentioned, it often results in huge generalizations.

If you have that guy as your coach he gave you good advice RUN, run far, far away from him.
