Default Marvin Hagler's training routine ?

Marvin Hagler always looked in great shape [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]but i havn't heard much about what his training routine consisted of, the only things i really know are that he ran alot in the cold and often backwards but that's about it. Does anybody know anything else about what his training consisted of.

His motto was "be the man", not sissy. He used to run in army shoes, trained in a deserted hotels. He called his regime "prison". I do not think there was something special about his routine. Just insane discipline and commitment. He had that attitude of champ: do not count reps, just continue till you are dead.

He ate a lot.....mostly trees, and would wash it down with Mountain Dew. But not just regular Mountain Dew.....Mountain Dew code RED!

Cape Cod in the wind, heavy beach runs and heavy sparring, circuits consisting of 12 3-minute rounds of skipping, bags, balls etc.

There was a guy called Manassa Mauler on here at one time, who was a huge Hagler fan, and he told me Hagler did a lot of plyometrics, and I think it was inspired by some Eastern European

Growing up in Boston during the 80's I remember an article in the Boston Herald describing Hagler's routne while preparing for a bout with I think Antuofermo. The funny thing about it was that Marvin didn't do anything unusual or high tech when preparing for a fight. But what he did do was pound away at the basics. He put himself "In prison" as he liked to say. Long runs along the dunes in Provncetown, sparring, bag work, rope skipping and endless calisthenics. Nothng fancy but the basics x 10. He proved that with hard work and dedication, you can excel without the the gizmos and gadgets alot of people think are a necessity.

What on earth are people talking about with this 'high tech', 'gizmos and gadgets' talk? Do people think there's a modern machine that works out for you?

Very low tech...trained for weeks in secluded areas in the northeast...his preparation focused on ridding himself of all distractions and old school boxing workouts - rope, bag, medicine ball, sparring.

I'm off to my hi tech gym in a minute. We have ropes and balls with air in there - I've also got these gloves with padding in- might use them providing the NASA scientist on site in the nuclear kit bunker approves them.


In fact marvins training was quite thoughtful- yes he grafted his nuts of but one of the earliest videos I've ever found were of padwork were Hagler and his trainer - they used boxing gloves instead of pads.

I found this awhile back:

Marvelous Marvin Hagler Workout
According to a "Ring Magazine" article, Hagler used to isolate himself at the very tip of Cape Cod (near his hometown Brockton, Massachusetts) in a remote beach hotel. He would wake up at 3 AM every morning and do sprints of up to 6-8 miles on the beach at Cape Cod in heavy combat boots- half of it running backwards. Sprints are a great way to build up your endurance and body. Sprinters maximally contract their muscles, which requires a lot more work than a slow, staggered, constant run. Not to mention, your testosterone and hormones are released in greater amounts with short maximal energy bursts.

During the winter, it was said to be one of the coldest places on Earth due to the heavy wind. Marvin would actually be screaming due to the pain of the cold and the pain in his legs and lungs. Then he went into "solitary" till six in the evening. At six, he went to the gym they'd set up alongside the pool at a hotel nearby. Your body tends to burn even more calories in the cold, as your energy expenditure increases. Therefore, this could be part of the reason why Hagler was extremely lean.

There, they would perform a circuit of jumping rope, heavybag, speedbag, and situps (where they'd do several rounds each), but one strict rule was adhered to: three minutes work, one minute rest, for all of it. This mimics that of a typical boxing match and will get Hagler ready for his matches.

After that they would do their sparring routine. Marvin had to have several sparring partners in camp with him because he used them up with such regularity. "Marvin don't ease up on you," said longtime sparring partner and world champion Buster Drayton. There's no play when it comes to Marvelous Marvin; "he comes to work". This is another great way to get him ready for his matches.

Marvin would spar with three to four sparring partners, where he went two rounds each before moving on to the next fresh partner. This dramatically improved his conditioning and taught him to remain in great position even while he was tired. Drayton also said that his sparring partners would leave the ring with the insides of their mouths so chewed up from Hagler's blows that they couldn't even eat dinner that night.

After that, he would rest, eat, and watch film of himself and his opponents. The workouts were open to the public, so he'd remove his gear, toss a nod to the audience, and return to the self-imposed solitary confinement. Those working with him in camp have said that he wouldn't even socialize, because he wanted to remain so focused on his goals. He stayed in his room, and could be seen frequently sitting alone on his balcony staring out at the Cape water for long periods at a time. Marvin made sure that he worked out 7 days a week and got atleast 100 rounds of sparring in every week, but most importantly, he was always fast asleep by 8 PM to get his 7 hours before his 3 AM run.

As you can see, Hagler took his training very seriously by putting himself in such a solitary confinement like environment. This allowed him to be extra focused for his matches, which could explain why he was so successful in the ring.
