    Interesting. But most of the fighters does morning running, and for example Golovkin trains and lives (Conte says it’s not just stupid but also dangerous) in high altitude and he has a brutal stamina and gastank.

    What does this fat sack of **** know about actual TRAINING and CONDITIONING for fights? That's not his area of expertise. Assuming that's an actual quote it's incredibly stupid and flat out wrong.

    It's only natural for a cheating, lying, deceiving and deceptive scumbag ****head to discredit legal and tried & tested methods of training, so that he may further push his own illegal injections and supplements (PED's and steroids and the like).

    In other words, do not listen to this devil.

    Victor has always thought the secret to high athletic performance was to be found within the needle of a syringe rather than good honest hard work. So forgive me if I grab a pinch of salt.

    Anyway, Big Bear has always been about more than high altitude science; it is the isolation from distraction and the focus which this allows that is also key.

    I think diet, recovery and training methods are overthought.

    Of course they are very important, but who is a champion is gonna be a champion if he train in high altitude or low altitude, and who is not a champion not gonna be a champion just because he starts to use e.g. Victor Conte’s training system.

    Stamina/gastank is same like punching power. 80-90% depends on your genetics.

    He was blowing hard against Canelo, I don’t think GGGs stamina is great, it’s good but nothing special.

    I wonder if Victor Conte has ever stepped in the squared circle? Something tells me no.

    At the age of 35-36-37 he did very well in the championship rounds against Jacobs and Canelo2x.

    He is always breathing heavily between rounds, that’s a Russian “trick” to fill up the lungs as much as possible.

    I don’t believe that Russian trick stuff, I’ve never seen him breathing like that. Remember Canelo made him give up ground, every other fight GGG has either backed up the fighter or held his ground.

    High altitude training is non-sense, right. And the earth is flat.

    I used to come to Mikkel Kesslers gym from before the Calzaghe fight until the end of his career with my dad who knows him and used to spar him when Mikkel was very young. He developed/changed his workout routine from those classic workouts to more "crossfit" like workouts with high intensity, explosiveness and sprints rather than long runs and long passes with heavy lifting (which i don't think he ever did). His argument was that a round lasts 3 mins so he should train to be effective for 3 intensive minutes at a time and then rest rather than being able to run a marathon with more endurence but less intensity - it made sense to me at least. He still did longer runs but it was just warm ups or basic trainings i think. Still i don't think there is nessecarily just ONE way to train right for boxing - boxers physique vary and so does/should their training.

    No **** he was 36. Nobody has a great tank at 36. Imagine Aaron Pryor at 36.
