You get conditioned to the sport. Im my opionion your better off hitting the bag and sparring than doing endless floor exercises.

They help for sure. But you get fit for boxing by....boxing


probably should have said that. If its not boxing related then its supplemental.

ye sparring isnt a huge problem cause there are those few seconds of rest every now and then in the round.. before pads we were doing bag work and my coach told me "go light on the bag then give your 110% on the pads" and i did so. I wanted to put a good first impression on the TKO coach and i sure did, thing is he would make pads constant , 2 minutes of constant punching killed me.. thanks alot for the feedback guys couldnt have been better. Running is the only thing i dont do in Boxing, never liked it but im willng to train even harder now, thanks again

He sounds like he is just doing punch out drills with you. That's not really training on the pads.

With pads you should be doing a combo and then moving, changing angle etc. Not just throwing 1-2's for 3 mins without a break.

Sounds like you have a very good head on your shoulders and willing to learn and listen, the stuff we've talked about will help. But get back with that coach and keep working. It used to kill me too doesnt anymore and although sprints ect ect helps if i had never done pads for 2 mins before it would still kill me.

Good luck keep working hard and enjoy

ye it sounds like that but he puts up different combinations really fast somewhat like, "Roll,Roll, Reverse Hook, Gimme 5! ,Again! ,Again!, Jab, Jab Left body shot" and repeat exactly the same except the Roll with Lean and instead Jab left body shot, Reverse right body shot. Mind you i only did 2 rounds with him and this is what i got.. kinda tough but im willing to work hard just to go somewhere with this sport, i put it before almost everything

Awhile back there was this new guy in our gym who was marathon fit but he was nowhere near fit enough for boxing, guy would gas out after one round.

Yea, just like what others have said, in boxing you end up using different muscles along with different energy systems.

BTW, it's always nice to hear there are youngunz like you who are serious about training for boxing. Keep on learning and keep up the hard work.
