It's seems like the best thing you could do to get in shape for boxing is just exercise 3min on, 1min off for about 12-15 rounds. Build up to a certain amount of rounds, then add intensity to each round. Do this in the morning in place of running.

What do you guys think?

I do 3 minute rounds with 1 minute breaks for things like sparring, mitts, or technique practice and usually about 6 rounds of that.
Then i do 6-8 3 minute rounds with 30 second breaks for jump rope and bagwork. In between each round i drop and do 5 quick pushups, then recover as you would if you were knocked down in a fight (knee rest for 6-7 count and then stand up with hands ready and feet moving). This helps to train the body to efficiently recover from a knockdown punch in a fight. Also, I make sure to go especially hard for the last 30 seconds of each round to simulate finishing a round strong.

thats pro

i do amateur, in those fights its only 6 minutes, and 8 minutes for more advance amateurs, 2 minutes a round + 3 rounds = 6 minutes, but in training i get tired in the 6th round, only a total of 6 rounds of sparring a week

Don't like doing roadwork. It's much more fun to go 10-12 3 minutes rounds.

It doesnt matter if you fight pro or am,

you should be aiming to train on bags and pads - 3min round with 30 second breaks

I do this on bags and pads - 3mins round, take my gloves off+drink(15secs), skip or speedball(30secs), gloves on+rest(15secs), start anothor 3mins and continue for 10, 12 or 15 rounds depending on how much how fit i am. I do 6 and work my way up to 15 if i have been off training with injury.

When i'm sparring its 2min rounds with 1 minute breaks!! Its so easy!!

Nice!I've also been shortening my rest periods between rounds to 30 seconds and have noticed an increase in recuperation times.I'll have to use your idea of integrating additional work into the rest periods elveiel.

Its cool but it hurts!! :D

you have to rush between rounds and dont get a real break, but the real killer is when my coach uses a punch counter, it makes you push yourself that little bit more because you want a impressive punch tally.

So, your coach doesn't let the round end until you meet a specific number of punches?Or is he just using it to get an idea of what your average punch output is?Thanks.
