Chris Eubank's training (every day):

First I started my stretching, then
3 rounds of shadow boxing,
6 rounds of heavy bag work,
3 rounds of speed ball,
Skipping between 20 to 30 minutes non-stop, no break straight through.
50 sit-ups, not crunches proper sit-ups.
Stretching.
Finish with 20 hits in the stomach with a medicine ball.

That was generally the routine.
If I was sparring it was the same routine but without the bag work.


I did both sprinting and long distance. 7.6 miles every morning, 7 days a week.

Chris ate only one meal each day - whatever his wife was cooking in the evening. He sometimes dipped biscuits in cups of tea throughout the day, but nothing more than that. If he was overweight before a fight, he didn't eat or drink anything for days or even a week (and steamed the weight off!).

Chris had a great physique yet he never lifted a weight in his life! He sometimes did push-ups but very rarely.

Only 70 crunches total?

Either that routine is bogus or he is one of the most naturally gifted athletes in the planet.....Eubanks was always in top physical condition.

He did 50 sit-ups a day, I was suprised by so few also.

Eubank had incredible genetics and fell short of his potential, he was a total prat really!

I am a big fan of Eubank, I liked his style and his showboating was humorous....I loved how he would always with the ref right as he was pummeling a guy.....He was just fun to watch.

Eubank never fought in the states and if he did, he probably would have been viewed in a different manner..It's a shame he had awesome skills and was really well rounded.

ha i do the exact same boxing routine as eubank only do 7 rounds on heavy and 4 rounds of shadow, and do always 4 min rounds with 1 min rest, and i start with ab workout and i finish with ab workout. and i do more strength training then him, but i don't use weights only bodyweight.

quality over quantity man, and everyone is different, i gotta friend that does hundreds of situps, but its so easy to drop him with body punches, i drop him at least once a round, hence, we only spar for 2 rds :rolleyes:

looks like Eubank focused more on training muscles into boxing, like implanting a a boxing brain into muscles, rather than do tonnes of weights, hill sprints and all other technical cardio exercises that can be seen as cross training. Chris did core exercisers of boxing, and nothing much more. hes regiment may seem short, but it allowed him exert himself almost 100%, instead of crusing along just being reluctant to finish standing.

I'm not so sure about that because i've heard him say many times that he did lift weights, he maybe didn't do that much, but his training would have incorporated some weights

I'm not sure,the British middleweights and super-middleweights at that time were superb.
Michael Watson was a terrific fighter,Nigel Benn,Steve Collins,Herol Graham-all world class fighters.

It's been said that the only man capable of beating Eubank fair and square was Roy Jones Jr. Collins, Calzaghe and Thompson didn't beat him fair and square, and Eubank was past his prime anyway. Eubank was the type of fighter who could give anybody fits, you didn't know what to expect from him, and that's why a lot of people stayed well clear of him.

I've cut my crunches down a lot, i dont think there as important as some people think, but i suppose in my situation i use a lot of upperbody movement and work the body a lot which make my torso strong.

I dont think Eubank could have a stomach a ripped as that without a lot more than 70 though.

Jones didnt even beat Eubank so that just a guess, the others have proven they can beat the style and Eubanks never fought past his prime, he always come to fight in great condition.

For boxing I would think a large amount would be needed to keep you strong, however if it is strictly for vanity reasons than just feeling the burn a bit and keeping a strict diet would be the key.

70 is an awfully low number, perhaps if he came up and held it there for about 15 seconds each.
