Old school for example, handball, Dempsey, Greb and many great fighters regularly incorperated handball into their training program.
Lets see what response this gets.
Do you even have any idea what you're trying to say? How could anything 'not work'? Everything does something. The most effective at what? Boxing training improves boxing skills, always has and always will. I could train boxing all day and spend 10 minutes throwing faeces at the wall and be a great boxer. So throwing shit at a wall is good for boxing? Do you understand yet why everybody here thinks you're a complete moron?
If you do something then you have to explain why you're doing it and what you're improving. Saying that it's old school and it works doesn't mean shit. With knowledge comes understanding of motor control, skill acquisition, maximising different components of fitness. Boxing coaches might accidentally do some things right but when it comes to someone who specialises in those areas the boxing coach is relatively clueless 99 times out of 100.
Old school training is by definition less effective, you can only go forward as knowledge advances unless you're actively trying to sabotage your fighter. Which seems to be what you're intent on doing out of ignorance and narrow-mindedness. You're a fool, post some more cartoons.
