1st time poster - 1 question
I'm going to keep this short...
I have been going to my local amateur boxing club 4 nights a week, for 10 weeks now. I have previous experience in Thai boxing at a basic recreational level, so i am not a complete beginner as such. However, i am going to be speaking to my coaches in the new year, when the gym opens, with a view to competing at amateur level for my gym, and taking it from there, hopefully building on that over the next few years.
My main question: How best can i use 5 mornings of my week before my 9 to 5 job?
I understand to get to the competitive level i'm aiming for, i need to develop, fitness, nutrition, and boxing skills.
Fitness and nutrition are the easier of the two. The area i need to work most on, is my boxing skills.
Is it best to get myself down to my gym studio each morning, which has a heavy bag and mirrors. I was thinking i can do several 3 min rounds of skipping, and several 3 min rounds of shadow boxing, before finishing off with stretching. This would be followed by boxing 4 nights a week at my local amateur gym in Leeds.
Any advice is appreciated.

Don't do nothing with your morning ,enjoy a good nights sleep ,then go to work,,,,
back to the training,,your head is thinking clear learn to box before fitness ,,that good
step up the morning runs about 2 -3 months when your coach's say your ready for your first fight
get plenty of sparring to make it real ,, if you still like the training then go be champion of the world
