    Hello everyone.. I have been boxing for about 3 years or so, and have a decent winning record.. For the last year or so, I haven't had so much fire in my training as I used to (im still in the gym every day Im supposed to be, I just havent been able to push it as far as diet and stuff at home goes, which USED to be only roadwork for me... So I will basically start strength training for the first time in my amateur boxing career now, and Id like to log it here for motivation and criticism! (I did a deck of cards worth of push ups and situps each night for about a year when I first started training, but since then, I will do a quick "routine" here and there but never stick to it).

    Anyway, sorry for the long intro. I am actually on a break from the boxing gym til New Years, so I have decided to use the off time to help get in a routine of running(again) and strength training.

    Tuesday 12/18/12 (Day One)

    Ran 2.5 miles (live in the mountains, always makes for a fun run, and always finish with a hill sprint, huge hill right before my driveway)
    Circuit.. 3 Sets of each
    Squat Jumps(tuck at top of jump) x 15
    Clap Pushups x 15
    Clean and Press(explosively, lightweight I think 45 lbs) x 15
    Boxing Squats x 20
    Pull ups x 5, chin ups x 4
    Burpess(replaced 2nd and 3rd set of sqwuat jumps) x 15
    Medicine Ball Push Ups(one hand on, other off) x 20 (replace 2nd set claps)
    Push ups with feet elevated and hands on medball(replaced 3rd set claps) x 15

    So after a small break for the holiday week, I have been back at it, started back at the gym last week. So here goes..

    1/7/13
    Boxing gym

    1/8/13
    Boxing Gym

    1/10/13
    Boxing Gym

    Our workouts at the gym usually consist of warming up/shadowboxing for 2 or 3 rounds, and ten another 10-12 rounds of boxing specific work(some days more mitts than bag, some days more or no sparring, etc, etc) followed by a core routine. I have began doing some strength training at the gym right after our workout as well, that I will post for criticism and to keep track for myself.

    Repeated circuit 5 times. Got the workout from rosstraining forums..

    Didn't seem that challenging, I plan to maybe try it again another time and either up the pace and time it, or just use it as a finisher maybe.(with just one set, but more reps)

    There are def. more simple workouts I have done that feel more effective...

    Boxing gym workout, very light
    I was spent today from the start for some reason, no running or str training.
    1/29/13
    Ran 2 miles through mountain, didnt time it
    Boxing gym workout
    Quick circuit leading the guys at the gym (right after our boxing training)
    10 x Clap Pushups
    10 x Burpees
    10(3 steps = 1) x Mountain Climbers
    12 x Jack Knifes


    Repeated 4 times. I could have done more, but wanted to do a group workout, and most of the guys arent in quite good as shape as me as they're less experienced, but it was still a good workout, especially right after training.

    30 minutes on elliptical.. Have had some pain in my Achilles and up the outside of my calves the last 3 days or so, guessing it is a result of going from no leg training except running, to a lot of explosive jumps and what not..(for me, at least.) Interestingly, not only did using the elliptical not bother my legs, it seemed to relieve them.
    Boxing gym workout
    Shoulder maintenance + 3 x 25 Push ups w/ feet elevated,
