Re: Strength conditioning for boxing
This is some great stuff man. I've been doing alot of bears combined with jumping rope using the tabatha method. I feel great, and stronger even though I'm a couple pounds lighter.
Most of my life I've been fit. I use to bodybuild, train for "track", and other stuff, but these workouts are amazing. I use to be able to lift so much weight, but I felt no where near as good as I do with these workouts. I also use to run 8 miles everyday, but I've cut that down now since I have two jobs, finishing college, and a girlfriend.
My workout goes like this:
Monday: Run 4 miles. Bear excercises. Jump rope.
I jump rope as fast as I can for 20 secs, then rest 10 secs, repeat 8 times.
I do this twice, all after 4 miles.
Then 1 set of 4 reps of bears using pretty heavy weight
3 minute jump rope
Repeat above 6 times.
Workout abs, bicycles, crunches, side-to-side weighted crunches, sit-ups
jump rope for about 5-10 minutes
Wednesday: repeat monday workout
Thursday: run 8 miles, light jump rope. Light ab workout
Friday: repeat monday workout
Saturday: light jog (basically for fun)
I actually enjoy running
My goals are basically to stay strong but as light as I can be. I want to stay in pretty good shape so by Jan-Feb have enought time to train for an am fight.
Do you consider this a good workout?
