I would do them all but lay off the weights. I've never lifted any weights in my entire career.

Word.

You can look pretty doing all those things, but if you can't apply it to your sparring what's the point? Sparring is a like a scrimage.

No duh Dip *****!!!

I'm just stating that if you don't apply your techniques in sparring or if you don't execute what you practice on the bags or mitts, then it's no good.

How can someone argue with that? That's the most logical form of training. Taking what you learn and applying it.

Sorry about the "dip *****"....*yuk-yuk*

no idea what the point of this question is, obviously you do all if you want to win, why would you restrict yourself to three things?

just wondering what the majority would choose, if he/she were limited to 3 exercises other than sparring.

i'm surprised most people chose:

D) jumprope, mitts, heavybag

no running? running is a must!!

swimming would be a good replacement

Do you ever run in the ring? does running make your shoulders burn? does running improve your rhythm and coordination? all running does it get your heart rate up, you breathing hard, and your legs going. When your good on a rope you can poop yourself out just as fast as sprinting all out, try doing double unders for 30 seconds and see how you feel.

Run in the ring? Like jogging running or running from a fight running? *yuk-yuk* Personally, i think the ring's too small to do some running in it. Lateral movement and boxing movement yeah. But running itself? I'll stick to the trail, track or street.

The double end bag is one of my favorites. i should start making a habit of using the speed bag more often. There's too much to do in so little time.

I wish i can just train all day and get paid for it. Wouldn't that be the life.

very very limiting options.

wow, someone is taking it up the anus with an Anti-Running sign.

of course, intense rope work vastly improves conditioning and footwork, but you don't have completely ban running. doing both would greatly improve conditioning.

Exactly. So why the **** would anyone limit themselves to three training choices? You just underlined exactly why this is a dumbass poll... :smashfrea

since people are having nightmares by imagining being limited to 3 exercises to choose, maybe i should have revised it to "in your opinion, what are the top 3 most important common exercises for boxing, besides sparring (sparring would obviously be a first)"
