find the most annoying alarm in the world and place it far from your bed so that you have no choice but to get out of it....this alarm has to be so annoying that it will immediately enrage you upon hearing it.....do this for 1 week straight dont miss a day and you will be on your way....

That's a good thing that your sleeping through it. Road work is over rated and a waste of time. Hmmm. Running 4-7 slowed paced miles to prepare for a fight that has repeated bouts of intense activity, in multiple directions, fought at different a pace throughout the round... Sure....Road work will prepare you for that.

its a little bit overatted, but. It will help you alot between rounds in recovery. Also mixing your running with sprinting and anearobic activities such as burpees is a great way to get in shape.

Not as many fighters as you think use roadwork and it's heavily overrated and not used by the rare breed of coaches who understand exercise physiology.

seems like none of us is a real morning person if it comes to exercise ha, well one for me is that my muscles really don't want to work out before 12 noon. Stiff, pain full, still tired from last night.

My brain is uber active but thats only good for work.

I only train in the afternoon and evening up to 8pm latest. Running is only good for losing weight if you ask me

Yeah, sure I read somewhere that Diaz doesn't do running. He swims instead, which is probably better for you.

anybody who says roadwork is overrated doesnt know sh** about boxing. Running is the best aerobic exercise out there and is a vital part to becoming a good fighter. Anybody who tells you roadwork is "overrated" is an idiot and is probally a terrible boxer.

Look This is 2008... For anyone that says roadwork is vital is to becoming a good fighter is an absolute ****ing idiot. STUDY exercise science/physiology! Well, judging from the intellect on some of your posts, can you even read or know what a book is?

Tell me boys, how much of boxing is aerobic? Do you even know or is it, well I can't think... why should I so and so does it.. nooooot as much as you think.

You getter better results with shorter more intense runs. That match the intensity and energy systems being used during a fight..simple.

You don't put your track shoes and run around the ring like a ***** during a fight do you?

Seriously, all these uneducated people who debate out of pure emotion and NOT logic don't understand training.

Skills win the fight for you aussieboxer2320 not running 8 slow paced miles, dude I'm not even going to break it down for you cause you'll spout of weeeelll so and so does this! Mayweather does more sprint work and shorter intense running than you think bro.

At least there are some people on here who understand training.

giantsbran1227.. no article from me on here.. But shuttle runs, sprint repeats, stair runs, cruise ( tempo run ) sprint drills.. are example of superior conditioning. The key is using near incomplete rest periods...

Hey.. You boys probably still believe in the ****ing Easter Bunny don't you? Common it's ok, tell me.. admit it.. Santa Clause too? I know I know your little sister or brother does so I guess you have better too.

Hell those of you who favor long road work would probably tell an overweight person to go jog for an hour or 45 minutes, or do an hour on the bike to lose the weight..

Sorry fellas, amongst TRUE experts who understand boxing and training fighters, you guys are the laughing stock, or complete idiots who don't know **** about boxing.. Please keep your insults coming cause coming from you and the intellect you show in your posts, they mean very little, veeeeery little :-) but they are funny so they do make my day.. Thank you!

the kind of conditioning you mentioned does help and does simulate the output of energy in a real fight better i agree, but roadwork is valuable on top of that for general fitness, burning fat, and not to mention the dedication and honesty it takes from you. running for 8 ****ing miles in the streets gets your head on track and hopefully lets you think about the fight and strategy, all that ****, as well as guarantees that you're not out partying late at night and other ****

You can't even speak right bro! Don't worry just for you I'm not going anywhere!!! Ha! I'm here to save the young aspiring fighters from people like you, nahhhh, I'm not going talk your jive language... You better hate on me bro.. Hate on me good.. Cause there's MUCH more to come... You head hurts reading my posts I know.. It exposes your ignorance and its obvious by the way you insecurely attack me.. I love it!

Don't worry bro... There ARE MANY more coaches out there like me and we are here to quiet little kids like you...WE are not going anywhere.

dfwtx, I know what you mean and you mean well by saying it clears your head and keeps you disciplined, yeah it may do that.. All I'm saying bro is that there are far more effective ways to condition... People have to understand that when you train, exercise you have a hormonal responce to and when you perform aerobic long distance running you realease a **** load of cortisol a catabloic hormone.

Bro, research shows that interval training, runs etc burns fat faster and more effective then long running.. It's been tried and tested.. I learn all this stuff from my peers who work with many of the fighters read about on here for the most part..

I take NO insult personal on here... We are many who think this way... I'm not trying to be an ******* just trying to add some insight here.
