This.

It's laziness, simple as that.

You have to have a reason for boxing. Think about your end goal when you feel like sleeping in or whatever, don't just give up and feel sorry for yourself like you're doing now.

Pull yourself together. It's not too late just yet. I lost my first four bouts. Now I have 100 bouts and over 70 wins.

Stay disciplined, keep working out, and keep practicing. Sleeping in and leaving the gym are great ways to keep losing fights. I think it's important to be honest to yourself and acknowledge when you cheat or slack in training.

I think people have a really bad habit of justifying theirs "cheats". When you cut corners the only person you're hurting is yourself.

I feel like im boxing at a weight where i am a bit too short but i can't make the weight below (i barely make this one). I also struggle with food an i occasionally binge, like today in the A.M i was supose to spar but decided to sleep in and know im binging all day instead of going to the gym/ group run) Can you please give me advice? Does this mean i should quit because i will never ever be anything? And please do not be mean or rude.

Real account is Babyhug
Let me tell you a little about me, and maybe it will help you out.

As a kid/teenager I loved basketball. Couldn't get enough of it. It was the only sport for me. Then, in my 20's, I found boxing and was converted. Now, I love boxing. Its the only sport I follow.

One day, after years of reading instructional books and working out at home, I went to the boxing club at the local university. Keep in mind I was 31 yrs old and about 100lbs overweight. Everyone there looked at me like I had 3 heads. "Who's the fat old guy?"

I out worked all of them that night. I may not win, I may look stupid, but I won't be quitter. I'll go out on my shield no matter what I'm doing.

Sure, the next day I felt like I got hit by a truck, but I went back just to show them I survived.

A few years go I decided that I was going to get serious. I went to the local gym in my area, which was ugly, unfriendly and....AWESOME. I loved it.

Sure, every time I went I looked horrible and got beat up, but I kept going back.

Eventually that gym closed and now I'm at a new gym. Now I'm at a yuppie gym with a bunch of pretty women who are in much better shape than me. The guys are yuppie sissy boys, but I'm so out of shape they might kick my ass too!

Either way, I go every week. Even when I don't want to. So what if I'm the older than almost everyone there (I'm 38 ) and I'm the fattest guy in the gym (290 lbs).

They can't break me!!!

And this... Remember, if you let up you lose. Its that simple.

Also, boxing is unforgiving. If you don't want to take your own safety seriously, you might consider a sport where someone isn't punching you the face.

I think he means he's won 9 and lost 5 since the first losses, not he's magically erased a loss.

I agree. I just posted this because its kind of a weight of my chest and now i feel abit more motivated. Thanks everyone for the posts.
I might start up a training log like some of you here and would be gratefull if spme of you checked it once in a while? What do you think?
25/04/12 the day i stop feeling sorry for my self and man up. The gym is shut today.
And another thing how badly weight wise do you think a 4/5 day binge would have done for my weight? Should i just not eat anything today to make up for it.

Don't starve yourself, the body doesn't work like that. If you stop feeding it, it's likely to start retaining more water and fat because it thinks you're starving. Vary your meals, eat pretty often, get lots of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, and simply adhere to a diet of those things from this day forward.

Depends on the extent of the binge, but I'd honestly just forget about it and start training harder and eating better and compensate for it in the long run, rather than looking for an acute solution to counter the effects.

If you feel like boxing is the way for you to have a future act like it. I know it's not easy, but you can't let the loses defeat you from reaching your potential. It's not about how many times you get down, it's how many times you get up. Maybe you should look up Hopkins biography. Most fans know he lost his first pro fight, but it was after that fight that he made the decision to completely dedicate himself to boxing. Until this very day, he's one of the most disciplined fighters in the sport that completely dedicated his life to his craft.

Not many people could get back up from 6 defeats and fight on motivated and with confidence. The moment you do that, even though most people would've probably given up, is the first victory for you in this sport. Think about it, will you take the easy way out and kneel to those defeats or will you stand up to face the situation and rise to the challenge. You can be strong or you can be weak, but in the end it's up to you.

I'm not a boxing instructor, and my experience inside a ring is minimal compared to some people here, but something that always worked for me was good athletic ability. I'm not saying you have to be a super athlete (I'm not), but you can train better to improve your athletics. I don't know what you do in regards to training but I'll just throw some advice from what has worked for me:

Implement inclined push-ups (legs slighlty higher than the floor), clapping push-ups, even jumping push ups when you improve.

Use kettle bells to compliment your strenght and conditioning work outs. Use boxing specific exercises that will improve your strenght, stamina and explosiveness.

Do pull ups and dips. Go down slowly and explode your way up (also the idea with the push-ups)

Use sprints, don't just do long runs, I suggest using some days to run sprints and hills if possible.

Don't miss the gym and listen to your coach. Give it your best everyday (important to take everything one day at a time). Develope the boxing skill you will most likely need to be effective like cutting off the ring, head movement, move in and out of your opponents pucnhing range, turn him over, etc. You have to convince yourself that you will become a beast in boxing, but to do that you have to dedicate yourself fully to it.

Eat right, if you need to lose weight do it the right way. Don't sacrifice nutrients in order to cut calories, just eat the right foods, it's not too complicated. Drink water, forget about sodas and other crappy drinks, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, wholegrain foods, and be mindful of how certain foods are prepared to determine if they really are what you should be fueling your body with.

Maybe this isn't the advice you need or maybe it is. Just consider it and take whatever good you can get from it and discard what you don't need. But usually when something is not working, the answer is in restructuring the whole game plan and approach, not quitting. Good luck and if you need advice on anything a little more specific just let me know and I'll do what I can to help.

No. Starving yourself to try and make up for it will in the end lead to a relapse.
If you starve yourself and dont eat, your going to be hungry, and your going to be craving food like mad. Think about it, it is not what you want, and you already have problems with cravings. Also there is only so long that you will be able to resist food, and only so long that the body can function without food, so when you do give in you will be at risk of another massive binge.

you have lot's of idea's from above ,,so here some negativity ,,,

go to the gym arrange sparring with at leased 5 boxers ( the real ones that didn't lay in)
then leave the gym go straight to pizza hut there's a offer on 12" pizza buy one get one Free
call at shop get a some beer & acouple of films ,,,go home & binge out ,do that everyday till your 40 stone
then how would you feel ???????

you are a athlete to have this amount of fights ,it is hard work,,, if you lose so what ,your a good person who wants to be a winner,,trust me eventually you will have the experience to get good eventually

i would binge out once a month & train hard to make it worth while

Binge out once a month. I think il find it hard to eat clean for a whole month but even harder to binge out once a while and then returning to my normal diet. I think il avoid binging
