Post How much do you train, and why do you train?

Hi.

I have two questions about boxing training:

1. How much do you train?
2. Why do you train?

Thank you,

Daniel Kemp

At the gym only once a week. Alone I try to get in two/three a week - and I do it because I'm overweight and trying to get some of it off.

In a week I will hit the weights 3 times, run 3 times and do 2 sessions devoted to planche progressions.

I simply do it for fitness and in all honesty vanity. In my mid 20's I was overweight, a smoker and a flight of stairs would leave me short of breath, decided I wasn't gonna go down that route and turned it all around.

Back then at my heaviest I was just over 11 stone which doesn't sound a lot but I am only 5" 5 and a normal healthy weight for me then was just under 9 stone.

I currently weight 9 stone 10 lbs but I have put on a lot of muscle since then.

I'd say about 3 times per week, depending on the week, though. I'm actually fairly inconsistent, which is my down fall. I'll go about 5 days straight and then randomly stop for about a week. If I wanna get into amateur boxing or make a career out of it, I definitely have to develop a better and more consistent workout plan.

Why? Because I love it and it keeps me in great shape. Plus, it's a potential future career option if all else fails LOL.
