Re: Old school training routines seem to be the simplest and most effective!
Here are facts:
1- Old school coaches have done very well for over two hundred yrs, in preparing boxers for whatever they had to face and they were very successful.
2- Old school guys actually had old school conditioners as they were known then
3- The training routines these old school guys used and developed are still in use today.
4- They were using private doctors in training at least 40 to 50 yrs ago.
So, just because modern technology is advanced doesn't give S&C the right to disrespect guys that have learned the old fashioned way and continue to use it. "Blanket statement alert''. The arrogance of SOME S&C, to think that only they have the knowledge to properly condition a fighter. Two of the best trainers in boxing Virgil Hunter, Freddie Roach, yes Freddie too, and John Scully are now suspect, why, because they dared say what is on most ("Blanket statement alert'') insiders minds, ARE S&C guys neccessary? The arrogance of SOME S&C, to think that only they have the knowledge to properly train a fighter is beyond reason. I am assuming you are from England, then read up on how Joe Calzaghe trained you might be surprised.
Join a team if you know so much you should be in heavy demand and STFU, prove yourself by doing not by yapping it up with those big fancy words, there is an old saying which applies here "Latin hides the stupidity of the priest."
