I remember looking up the real one a couple years ago, but I can't find it now. The one you just posted is not real. Floyd does much, much, much more than that. He runs something like 8 miles, he does occasionally do weighted exercises, and spars a bazillion 6 minute rounds. I don't remember exact specifics, but I remember enough to know that one and many others are fake. A lot of boxers routines on the internet are made up by people just to see who will believe it (especially a lot of Mike Tyson's routines).

It may not necessarily be a fake. You must remember that boxers and in fact most professional athletes never stick with the same routine for a period of longer than 2 weeks (the time it takes for the body to get accustomed to any specific routine). Professional routines usually start with a low intensity pace and constantly pick up intensity while changing exercises in the routine often enough to cause muscle confussion. No athlete ever does the same routine for an entire year, season, or even month so this may simply be a sample from one of his many varying routines... saw one similar to this in his interview in Muscle & Fitness Magazine.

Whatever mate.The difference is Mayweather's in top condition all the time and he works the hardest out nearly all fighters I read .That regime just makes me know it's time to move up a gear and start pushing myself harder ,inspiring.

I watched a Mayweather Gatti highlights video and it said he spars 15 minute rounds with fresh sparring partners moving in to increase his stamina as well :boxing: That's intense great ability as an athlete.

No specific but he mkes use of loads of volume - long rounds, lots of rounds, short breaks.

I think it'd be a safe bet to take the training regime of a top fighter, double it, and that'd be Mayweathers.

He runs daily, his jumprope is done in one huge block ratehr than multiple rounds, he spars and insane amount, and so on.

Floyd uses weights same with Ricky Hatton.I've seen viideos of Floyd using them and his roadwork is 8 miles not 5,Zab Judah does 10 miles.
The sit ups he does way more than that

I agree with you all the way,thread starter didnt get anything right,Floyd does way more than what thread starter said.His sparring alone goes on for very long,he always asks for 'fresh meat' i.e new sparring partner

All the top dogs do more than they tell. I mean Clottey is ripped as hell and he said all be basically does is run and spar. lol

if that used to be floyds routine its old as hell. maybe from when he was working with his dad before they split and he started working with roger instead.

eighter way its a pro boxers routine, not suitable for an amateur. floyd has great conditioning, he could literally go 20 rounds without getting tired. but as an amateur u dont even have to go 10, much less 20. so focusing your energy on that would be a waste of time.

u should be in shape dont get me wrong, but not mayweather like shape. spend your time more on skills and speed. instead of running 10 miles or however long it is everyday do intervals and spend the remainder of the time studying fight tapes.

I agree with you ...a lot of people that try pro boxers routines..will just overtrain or hurt themselves. Pro boxers have everything they need to avoid any injury (Coaches, nutrition, equipment). But, go ahead and train like a pro.. I ain't stopping you lol.

And it is also a mistake because pros need different conditioning to an amateur to fight 8, 10, or 12 rounds as opposed to 3.

8 mile runs, 5 minute rounds etc can be effective when you are like Floyd training for 12, but as an amateur training for 3, intervals, sprints and shorter rounds are more beneficial.

If you have the drive to do what the pros do, just do it. All the benefits you get from it outside of boxing in itself, is astounding.

Have not read these replies, but I see a constant flood of people wondering xxx persons training routine. You guys are failing to realize a key element.

These guys are training for 3 minute, 12 round fights. They are not training for 2 minute 4 rounders, or 3 minute 3 rounders.

In the amatures, you want explosiveness and spurts. In the pro's you want a much more steady pace with flurries here and there.

Secondly, these training regiments are for people who have been fighting damn near their whole life.

25 minutes of speed rope at a steady pace can be detrimental to an amature. A better routine is 5 minutes of sprinting on the rope.

Same thing with running. Rather then running 5+ miles, a good 2 mile run with sprints in the middle of the week will do you much better in an amature fight.

Same thing goes with majority of your workouts, such as the heavy bag. You are better off doing sprints on the bag for 3 rounds then slowly working for 15 rounds.

LOL. its good that you're inspired, but dont set yourself up for failure when you dont reach his level.

you need to do what works best for YOU. certain area needs improvement? work on that.

each person is different.

Something like this would be reasonably accurate for most pro-fighters, as a day-to-day training regime where the aim is to keep in shape.
It's pretty far off when it comes to training camps, though.

People should realise that pro boxers like Floyd trains for a living. That means that he gets enough sleep and rest in between sessions, unlike most amateurs/low level pro's.

^^^^this.


As soon as I read "Floyd stays away from weights" that's when I knew this wasn't right. Floyd does use weights, when he goes to the 24hr fitness gym. When he is in the boxing gym, the only weight he uses is for his neck exercise.

Floyd on running:

***8220;How far I run each day varies...And sometimes if I***8217;ve sparred more rounds than usual on one particular day, won***8217;t run at all. But when I do hit the road, I***8217;ll do anything between five and eight-and-a-half miles going fast."

Floyd on rope:

Mayweather will sometimes skip up to 20 minutes straight, often as a warming-up exercise.

Floyd on sparring:

"I spar between eight and ten rounds every day to work on my technique and certain punches I'm going to use to expose the boxer I'm fighting. I'm working on my uppercut because I've noticed Marquez has been dropped a few times with that punch."

Floyd on pads:

I'll do 30 minutes of padwork straight with no break at all."

25 min jumprope is the killer

he only used light weights for the delahoya fight and stopped after because he said he performed better without them

On the 24/7s they alwys show him punching with dumbbells. Floyd Sr. uses dumbbells too, and he is ripped for an old man.

I just wish I knew their exact routine.
