heres wuts up..
i havent fought since sept 08. i lost, it was my first fight..
i been training again since january, for my 2nd fight and dates keepin being pushed back cuz i aint gettin enough sparring in, and also other reasons, cant find proper opponents etc...

so i was training hard for 3 weeks but then found out i wouldnt fight as soon as i thought, so i took a week off.. then now i been on n off again , and i just need to put an end to it

i realized i dont have any training routine, i just go in there n box and do bagwork, padwork, skipping, running, shadownboxing, abs...

i need to add some things to my training and also learn to get it in a organized fashion

like 5 days a week, each day do something different instead of doing the same **** i do everyday...

let me know wut u think i should do or not be doing, or any advice is appreciated. as im going to be making some changes

Run if you aren't already doing it. Jump-rope, speed bag, double end bag, heavy bad, shadowboxing in front of mirror and in ring, sparring, more running...

Just stay in shape when you're not fighting. Then red line it when you got a fight lined up.

Do all that ***** hella times and you should be aiite. i can't make up your schedule for you though. Only you can do that.

I know how you feel, I have to mix things up alot too or I get bored, I keep the objective the same but change the format. I go by a 5 day routine for the most part like you (I dont really count the recovery run). Heres what I do (supplemental work only), maybe you'll get some ideas.

mon-(morning)power circuits
tues-(morning)30-45 minutes of intense cardio (160bpm+)
wed-(morning)barbell complex + burpees
thur-(morning)30-45 minutes of intense cardio (different type then tues)
Fri-(morning)minute drills
sat-recovery run (3-4 miles at a slow pace)

I've been doing this for about 3 weeks on top of my core and skill training (2 hard days skills, 3 shorter). The power circuits are like regular conditioning circuits except everything is explosive. One I've used a few times is (as an example, I think Ive posted it before):
25m sprint
25m sprint backwards
5-10 plyo pushups
25m strafe
25m strafe (other way)
20 lateral jumps over barrier
max rounds in 12-15 minutes, rest as needed

My barbell complex looks like this (I love this one, burns the shoulders soo bad), I havent come up with any other ones:
10 barbell high pulls (72lbs, same barbell for everything)
10 barbell cleans
10 barbell military presses
10 burpees (optional, makes it brutal)
10 barbell back squats (FULL squat)
10 barbell walking lunges
10 barbell straight legged deadlifts
10 burpees
1:00 rest, x 3 rounds

The last minute drill I did was this one:
30 seconds burpees
30 seconds lateral jumps
30 seconds high knee dumbell presses
30 seconds burpees
30 seconds lateral jumps
30 seconds high knee dumbell presses
x 4-6 rounds

I really enjoy my supplemental work even though its brutal, I havent been in better shape ever. A couple weeks ago I ran a mile and a half in 7:58 which was pretty sweet. Most of the conditioning (posted routines) only take about 15 minutes to complete so its not like it takes alot of time.
