Re: El Puma's strength conditioning thread
Good points. The running isn't just used for cardio in Boxing it's also used for losing weight. If I was just training for fitness I probably wouldn't do much running. The Bucket training is all I need for cardio, and I do the sprinting for the extra weight lose and the Buckett training I do helps it alot. The upper and lower body strengh it gives me makes me go harder and longer. The round duration is just an extra touch for the running, as I feel the closer your training resembles what your training for, the better it works out.
I have a very slow metobalism, and if I didn't do that extra running, my weight simply wouldn't come off!
