I am absolutley ashamed of my running over this winter. I used to do my cardio every morning. This winter was like twice a week. Canadian winters are ****, but I also have an exercise bike to use. Ahh, hopefully with summer comin' I'll get it back up.

I am no Boxer, but I am doing the training. I am still thinking about wether I have the guts to get in the ring. hell I have never hit another person in my life.

I have started running every morning from Monday to Friday.
At the moment I only run 1.5km then fast pase walking for another 1.5km then I get on a rowing machine and row 1km ever day.

I find my cardio is building up, and the weight is coming off.

I am about to start doing weights, to build up my weak arms. hahaha

really!
Well I am very new to this, I like the Boxing Circut classes I am doing and deep down I wouldn't mind giving it a go.
But the chicken in me who has never hit anyone and never been in a fight wants it to stay that way and is stopping me. Maybe with a bit more training and practise I might get the guts to give it a go.

Just go in there and get hit a few times... If you don't have the desire to hit back, boxing is not for you...

I usually run 1-3 times a week and I have an excercise bike I use on weekends and any weekday when I can get myself up by 5:30... usually 2 or 3 days a week.

As far as getting in the ring I get a little nervous too but for some reason I love that feeling. Its been a a little strange for me hitting people without being in a mindset to hurt them... but I think its something I'm getting used to.

I hate running, Mentally I have problems with it because I run from nothing!! WHen I run I try to visualize chasing someone down or finishing somebody as opposed to running from something because in reality I would stop and fight it.

I run for about 30 minutes, 3 times a week. This is for my long distance and fat burning. About 1/6th of the running for this is done at a higher pace than the rest, to mix up the speed.

Then, on 3 alternate days of the week, I do either stair-runnings or 30 second sprints, 4 times.

Normally, the time I run is 6 or 7 pm.

twice a day....at least 4 days a week. in the early morning hours...I do this cuz its something I been doing for years since high school before I even thought about boxing...its like a warmup routine, and at night after my workout...this is where I usually run the fastest.

2x sprints sessions p/wk (mon & wed) & 1 long distance on a Fri. Other 2 mornings p/wk are strength work.

BTW DMC - ive never been in a fight in my life (im a bouncer too). I train 2x p/day 6 days (Boxing, Muay Thai, Freestyle Wrestling, BJJ & traditional JJ + the conditioning...) - remember its a sport, not an uncontrolled pub brawl. Get in there & spar, give it time to get used to it. I only compete because i train too hard, too often not to & its a good test, gives you a chance to put your skills & hardwork to the test, as well as something to train for. The real fight is in the training - running when everyone else is asleep, the diets, the sparring, the lack of understanding & frustration at just about everyone whose never boxed in their life (but they always got something to say)...

That is not so. Your body needs rest. Roy took one day off a week when training for Ruiz, for example.

**** you, it might seem lame but Im ****in serious dog. You dont know me. Ive been in tons of fights, fought dogs that attacked me, been jumped, been shot at numerous times, snatched up people pullin knives on me, did loss provention (catchin shoplifters) and security (in section 8 housing). Ive been through it all. I dont back down from ****. I LOVE FIGHTING, everything about it.

Some examples, I used to work at a dog pound and one of the many times I had to squabb it out with a dog was this time this big ass rottweiler that had bitten somebody was and there and it had knocked its cage open, turned a corner and was running right at me. Anybody else would have took off running, I stood there and tried to grab it and it bit me, so I overpowered it threw it down on its side and got on top, it kicked me off and tried to bite my neck, I leaned out the way and pushed it back down and hit it like six times breakin its tooth. TRUE STORY, I got the scars to prove it.

Like Mike Tyson said " I aint afraid of nobody, in the ring or outta ring, they got a gun or a knife."

I used that as an example, peoples natural instinct in that situation is to run. You know damn well you would do the same if that bigass rott you were looking at earlier that was brought in because it attacked somebody was now loose and running directly at you. There was a door right around the corner I could have ran out the room and closed the door. I didnt run.

if i was going to go toe-to-toe with a dog id only want to be a trained boxer. Only boxers would have the timing & precision to wait 'til the bastard jumped, change the angle & smash it in the ribs. Buggered if i'd try to choke it or kick it.

If I wanted to take out a dog, I'd try to kick it, rather than get on the ground. I'm not that good at kicking, but I used to squat and deadlift alot, I bet I could take out a dog with a good kick.

Yea, Animal. You seem like a real cool guy. Not only do you hit yourself in the face in front of your teammates, bloodying your own nose. No, for now, you admit to actually participating in a dogfight, on the ground, cuz you didn't wanna back down from the dog...?
you are one crazy sum***** lol :)

Well I am a fan of animals and I hate ***s that abuse animals etc so I wasnt going to just flat out kick it in the head.... actually my plan was to grab it and take it back to its cage. I ended up sidestepping it to the right and grabbing the top of its back and and it immediatly turned and bit my left forearm and wouldnt let go, thats when we started rumblin.

i wont go into detail, coz its a boxing forum, but to the approach of the target, you couldnt generate enough force to throw a decent kick, i think a thai thigh-kick would be the only effective option - besides that, im not putting my damn leg anywhere near a dogs mouth - and how the **** could i run if my chicken punch failed? (ala RJJ v. Glen Kelly ;) ) I suppose a knee would ok if you time it well... but back to the running - maybe you tie some raw meat to your arse & unlock some cages - genuine "suicides"!

Running and getting in your road work has nothing to do with running backing down from someone in the ring or where ever it may be that you face an opponent. Roadword is for building up stamina, cardio, conditioning, you can shed some pounds in the process of getting into shape. Roadword is good not only for the actual fight but for those long hard hours at the gym, the more in shape you are the more your gonna be able to learn new combos and tequnic. You can't learn much if your gassing out.

At least thats the way I look at it, I wouldn't think of it as backing down or running away from anyone or anything, if anything look at like the more in shape and condition your in the more punches you can unleash on the other your opponent.
