Breathe through your nose, out through your mouth I was always told.

Calm your spirit within, stay focused, don't make unnecessary movements. You don't need to breather through your mouth, that is only for those who have wasted too much energy from their unnecessary movements.

It's not how you breathe, it's the energy you use.

You can also do it the easy way and just increase stamina by running miles and or hitting the boxing gym every single day, hit the punching bag, sparr a lot.

The top one is the mental way, the bottom one is the physical way. If you use both, you will be a force to be reckoned with.


I just made all of this up, I have been watching too much Dragonball Z. I am learning the ways of a Sayin so that I can use their mental toughness in my everyday life.

^Damn even I impress myself sometimes :D

Honestly I just wrote that off of common sense.

This one is good as well. A mistake that many people make and it is actually harder to do than just saying it.

I agree with this.

I remember the first time i visited a boxing gym i had a big smile in my face like if a kid just entered Toys R Us. I wanted to sparr with the best in there right away but the head coach didn't let me, I was 13.

Don't breathe in through your mouth unless the round is over. If you get caught whilst you jaw/mouth is open even slightly you can get really hurt.

It can result in a broken jaw etc.

I exhale out of my mouth when I throw punches. Kinda make that sound that Packy and Juan Diaz make when they throw.

Although most of this information is good, you should post a question like this in the Training/Nutrition forum instead of this one. There are a lot of pretend fighters and douche bags that follow this one and they actually know jack **** about boxing.

Exhale while you punch. Don't hold it in. Relax. Try not to be stiff. A lot of stuff comes into play with it. Only practice will get you good at it.

hard as hell... but its essential if you want to hit with effectiveness when thrwing combos... Your first punch will be ok but the ones after that will be weak.

Does breathing out while throwing punches help telegraph them, especially with the added sound of breathing through a mouthpiece?

Was you 5 foot 5? iF SO THEN i WOULD HAVE KNOCKED YOU THE **** OUT BROTHER! joke :

I hear boxers breathe out with punches. As with singin, if you get your breathing right, you can be a much better fighter.

that's what i meant to say. when the round is over i still see a lot of trainers tell their fighters to breath through their nose. but when you are not engaging in a round ive seen boxers breathe through their mouth.
