Hi me and my friend are about to start training starting up pretty soon. Its going to be my friends first time and my second stint, although I was never really serious when I had first trained a couple years back. Anyhow, I was wondering if someone could recommend a workout for begginers, especially their first few weeks. I say for begginers b/c of my friend and also for myself, as I never really learned anything when I trained a few years back. All I ever did was condition and spar every now and then. I want to concentrate this time on skill, but I doubt my trainer will allow us to do that. He has the belief that you condition first, then train for skill.

SO anyhow, if anyone could provide that, that would be great as I want to plan it out ahead of time so my friend and I aren't walking around the gym with no clue as what to move on to next. Also, if someone could provide a sample meal schedule that they use eat in a week, that would be good too. I have a lot of weight to lose so I really need to alter my diet. I want a specific meal plan though of what someone eats, not what is good for you what is bad, etc. I know all that, I just want to see what other people eat when they are training.

Thx!

Simple. Get a new trainer. You can learn skill while getting in better shape. I don't follow any kind of strict diet so I can't help you there. Just make sure to drink a lot of water.

As for training, have him work with you on the target mitts. Don't spar until you have a good understanding of the basics. When you hit the target mitts just right you will feel it. Also make sure he watches that you keep your guard up as and after you punch. This seems to be everyone except Winky Wright's problem.

Could not have said it better myself.

Yeah, that's true, boxernyc, He keeps his guard up..
Hopkins likes to keep his right hand up also...
It's hard to do when you're throwing combinations, but that's where the speed comes in, of course speed can only last so long..

In the beginning you should work a lot on your defences. Shadowboxing is good too just to get the rythm going.

Dont forget to run. Also if you can have explosive sessions of sprinting, like sprint for 3 minute intervals then walk while resting

Run a lot. This will condition you to last longer on the heavy bag or in the ring. Like Prospekt stated, implementing intervals and sprints will further condition you more for fighting.

Learning to be a skilled fighter is not something that you will learn quickly. It takes many years of dedicated practice to become proficient with the art. Your trainer is correct in first focusing to get you into proper condition before he gets you into anything major. Along the way with the conditioning I am sure that he will be showing you things that might not seem that exciting right now. He will probably show you how to shoot a proper jab, but your probably wanting to know how to knock somebody out with an uppercut. Be patient and follow his instructions. The small things that he will be teaching you during your conditioning are the things that are going to build a solid foundation with, proper stance, jab, right and defensive techniques. Build that foundation strong at the beginning and you will find that you will progress through the more advanced things in boxing much easier. Sounds to me like you have a good coach, who is going to do things the right way and look out for you, that is a major plus.............Rockin'

3 rounds speed bag
3 rounds double end bag
3 rounds heavy bag
3 rounds focus mits

Focus mits are key to learning skill. They are the best way to learn skill other than sparring.

Boxing requires both skill and physical condition. Thus, you should be working on both. If you work on conditioning when ur not with your trainer, your trainer won't feel like he has to condition you so much. besides, skill means nothing if u can only last for one round.
