    Intro
    Creating this training log to document what I do on my way to my semi-pro fight in 3 months time. Also to help/motivate anyone who feels they are struggling for time to train or just need pointers on how to organise their own schedules, whilst I try to balance family, social and work life with my training schedule.

    Background
    I am 28 year old male, currently weighing 78kg.
    I am currently scheduled to take part in a catchweight bout at 171 lbs on 7th July for 3 x 2 minute rounds.
    I have had one fight already this year in early March which was also 3 x 2 minute rounds which I won via UD.
    I am a member of a local boxing academy where I work on my boxing skills/strength and conditioning and do road work 4x a week on my own.
    I am married with 2 kids and work a Monday - Friday 8am-4:30pm office job.

    I've been keeping myself busy out of camp by doing long runs twice a week, circuits twice a week and doing pads/bagwork once.

    I began sparring last Thursday for the first time in 5 and a half weeks, warmed up by doing a round of shadow boxing followed by 3x2 minute rounds on the bag.
    Did 2 rounds of minimal contact sparring where we were only allowed to throw 10 shots a round. Harder then it sounds and really makes you think about shot selection, managed to floor my sparring partner in the second round with a great right cross.
    Finished up with shark tank, 1 guy boxes for 2 minutes whilst his 3 opponent switches every 40 seconds, We take turns being the 'shark' and do a round each of this.

    Camp officially begins tonight where I'll do S+C. 44 exercises for 50 seconds each with a 12 second break in between. Mixture of weights, calisthenics and cardio.

    S+C consisted of 48 stations last night. 6 sections with 8 exercises each in, focusing on cardio, abs, back, chest/arms, lower body and shoulders. 50 seconds on each station with a 12 second rest in between. Finished off with stretching.

    Woke up at 5:15am this morning and after a strenuous session last night I started this morning with a lighter session consisting of stretches, 3 x 2 minutes skipping, 4 x 2 rounds of shadow boxing and finishing off with 100 push ups.

    No training this evening or tomorrow morning as my wife works night shift and i'll be with the kids. So will rest ahead of another S+C session tomorrow night.

    Repeater S+C session last night. 48 stations, with an added 2 minute prowler push stick in the middle. Was up early this morning to do a 2 mile run, with sprints included.

    Sparring cancelled tonight, which is a shame, but could be a blessing in disguise, right hand hurts when i pull or lift things. Will decide after work whether i want to work on some stuff independently or rest it for the night.

    No sparring on the Thursday night, which isn't a problem early on in camp, hopefully just a one off.

    Friday morning was a basic session, 10 minutes of stretching, followed by 4 rounds of shadow boxing and 3 rounds of shoulder endurance exercises that I like to do. This consists of getting 2 2kg dumbells and doing the following 6 exercises for 20 seconds at a time one after the other, no breaks:

    Punching out
    Punching up
    Standing military press
    Reverse flyes
    Lat raises
    20 second Hold.

    Done for 3 rounds, with a minute rest in between.
    Ended the session with 100 push ups (25x4) supersetted with 10 x clean and press, 100 dips and 100 sit ups.

    Saturday morning was a technique/conditioning session. 4 x 3 minute rounds on the pads, then 3 pyramids sets. Set 1 was punches 2 to 20 and then back down. Set 2 was 2 - 20 and back down again, but with a tuck jump in between and final set was 2 - 20 and back down but with a sprint and burpee in between. Finshed with stretches.

    Sunday morning included 1 hour on the pads, 3 x 2 minutes on the bag and 3 x 2 minutes on the floor to ceiling ball, ended the day with a 4 mile steady run
