it used to bore me but after doing it for 2 weeks or so you get used to it. Its time i use to reflect on life and think about stuff.

I'm far from an expert on boxing but i think they where scrawnier back then because they focused on endurance. They used to go for 15 rounds, you need to be in tip top shape, so time would obviously of been better spent on endurance. I agree with the old school approach of training, its more of what i'm in to (i don't box but my routine for working out is modeled after). Plus a lot of them did hard labor back then, it gets you strong as hell ( i do it) but it burns a lot of calories and back then they didn't have cinnabuns with 600 calories in them, they ate an apple instead.
