Spend months training with only 20oz gloves.

3 weeks away from fight, train with only 18oz gloves.


2 weeks away from fight, train with only 16oz gloves.


1 week away from fight, train with only your fight glove weight gloves (8oz or 10oz.)


Also dumb bell shadowboxing.

get like 4*1 lb weights that you can hold all at once in one hand.

go out to the woods for an hour walk every day constanly shadow boxing while holding diffrent amounts of weights. like jab with 1 lb in your hand for a few mins then shadow bow with 1 lb in each hand for a bit then shadow box with nothing then shadow box with 2 lbs in each hand then jab for a little with 2 pounds in your left then jab for a little with nothing then shadow box for a little with nothing then shadow box with 2 lbs in each hand for a little then shadow box with nothing for a little then shadow box with 1 lb in each hand for a little then throw 3 lbs in your left and jab for a little then jab with nothing for a little then shadow box with nothing for a little all for an hour.

do that plus 4-6 miles a day plus 5 rounds of shadow boxing and 5 rounds of bag work and your hand speed will improve.

and i realize that one should allways keep in propr stance but as im walking through the woods ill usually just keep walking while im shadow boxing throwing my punches with my weight as i step forward instead of screwing up the way i walk just so i can be in proper stance while im shadow boxing.

where as the shadow boxing and bag work done at home should allways be in proper stance.

plus while your walking there are a plethora of exercises you can do with 2 lbs in each hand to build up your shoulders like front and side raises.

OP, do yourself a favor and disregard the above.

Then read these 2 links. It's a lot to read, but worth it if you are serious about increasing your speed.

this guys a ****ing retard.(the poster)

lets look into the links hes posted:

Speed Strength - Speed strength is defined as the ability to quickly execute an unloaded movement or a movement against a relatively small external resistance.

holy f**king **** you mean to say doing the same thing over and over and over and over and over again with little resistance increases speed per you own f**king link?? like say shadow boxing with 1 or 2 pound weights?

your a f**king joke that needs to control your jelously of my intelligence and mind your own ****ing buisness.

For example, world-renowned sport scientist Yuri Verkhoshansky and colleagues established that:

"Excessive maximum strength training can impair speed-strength and technical skill in boxers."

HOLY **** exxcessive maximum strength slows you the f**k down.

perhaps you should ignore any one that just blindly posts links while having no idea what the hell their talking about.

Heavy weights are best used to increase speed for lunges as the legs contain the largest muscles and have to move the greatest weight. The arms, however, donít need to move a considerable amount of weight, so the muscles are smaller. But, increasing the size of them will result in more weight having to be moved so they will be slower.

So, when designing a weight training programme, you need to work out the fine balance between how much size you wish to possess and the resulting speed. Standard, correct weight training will increase your strength and power but you may have to sacrifice some speed.

in no way will heavy weight training ever improve your speed.

as the two clearly go hand in hand.....if you want to be fast you stay the f**k away from heavy weights.

if you want to post links post links all day, if you want to tell some one i dont know what im talking about youd better know what your talking about first.

or would you like to post up a video showing off just why your so qualified to critique people?

almost all trainers these days are idiots as far as boxing is concerned. they hear fast twitch and think to them selfs WE NEED MORE FAST TWITCH!!!!!!!

is a boxer really a chicken? just a useless pile of fast twitch white meat? no a boxer is a duck or a humming bird 100% dark meat slow twitch fibers.

do marathon runners run an average of 10-12 miles an hour for 26 miles on fast twitch fibers? **** no. you cut open a marathon runners leg and you will find nothing but slow twitch dark meat fibers.

a boxer dosnt box for 3 mins 12 times in a row each time workng as hard as he can with fast twitch fibers he does it with slow twitch fibers trained to be just as fast as the fast twitch. manny paciano dosnt do 1000+ sit ups a day to work his fast twitch fibers he does it to train his slow twitch fibers to be as fast as his fast twitch.

listen you incredible moron, you have no business on a boxing forum giving anyone advice. there is a lot to building speed that goes far beyond the retardedness of your running and punching with weights in the woods with your flannel shirt on.

there are enough words in those articles I could pick out certain ones and highlight to begin giving obscure thoughts on the premise of M-string theory if I truly wanted to...which would be about as relevant as you trying to make sense of yourself. But that would make me crazy, kinda like, well, you.

Anyway OP, or anyone else reading who wants to increase speed or learn anything regarding strength training for fighting, or boxing or anything really...do yourself a favor and just block the incredible flannel-shirted nutjob..

and any one that wants to box as a part time hobby and has no plans to ever do anything with their boxing carrer should also block me.

where as if you want to make it some where in boxing, id highly reccomend that you read everything that you can possibly come across and make your own decisions.

and dont forget boxing is a sport that every one talks about but no one plays. I allready have a video up showing that i do box and at one point in time i had a basic understand of how to do it.

i doubt you will ever see a video from any one that has something to say about what i say. really who the f**k wants to take advice from a bunch of cowardice ******* that arnt even willing to put a 3 min video of them selfs punching a bag, on line.

FORUMS ARE WORTHLESS!!!!! especially this one. you got a question google it or ask at east side because the people here are worthless morons.

here you just got a bunch of dumb f**ks who think six packs and punching power are genetic. a bunch of dumb ****s who allways take the lazy/easy way out.

all this section will do is polute your mind. Stick to the other sections of the forum and save your training questions for google because youll get nothing but **** piled ontop of more **** while the only sane voice just keeps getting covered with more ****.

asking here is like teaching your self to box, your only going to create bad habbits.

yeah bruce lee was cool.

as for improving his hand speed:

he would punch 100 times then punch 100 times with 1 lb weights then 100 times with 2 pound weights then 100 times with 3 lb weights and 100 times with 4 lb weights then 100 times with 5 lb weights then 100 times with 4 lb weights then 100 times with 3 lb weights then 100 times with 2 lb weights then 100 times with 1 lb weights then 100 times with no weights, almost every day.

but he was just an actor and i of course am an incredible moron, that has no business on a boxing forum giving anyone advice.

Punching with weights. :dunce:

I'm sorry dude, but it just isn't good advice. That much work with increasing weights for punch outs puts a lot of stress on the lower back and joints of the elbows and shoulders. Unnecessary stress for something that really isn't merited in an effort to increase speed. And I call it like I see it. In my first year of training I did do punch out drills with weights and ended up ****ing my back, and now more years in, with the advice of a slew of trainers, sports doctors, physiotherapists, all basically telling me it isn't wise...I am comfortable with it. It leads to injuries. Which brings me to my point, that you might be a bit fast and loose with your advice, and possibly dangerous.

I know you don't have much actual boxing experience, and I've never tried to dig on you for it, or was one to jump on you about your vids as so many others have. That's just not how I roll, and I certainly am not going to put up a vid in some kinda e-penis war. C'mon now, that's just silly.

I will tell you that I am a boxer, like many others on the net, who trains in a gym and fights regularly, who still has lots to learn, but has learned a bit a long the way also. I try to help where I can, give a bit back, and if I see something I don't agree with, I'll call it out. It's not personal. But I'm human and will react when I see someone going off...usually with a lol, I just can't help it.

But any way, no hard feelings man.

I do have back problems kinda but ive had them all my life being tall.

recently ive been stretching my ham strings alot more and have beeen able to use my hips alot more when bending over to pick stuff up and slipping. I find that with just boxing makes my hamstrings tight naturally and makes my back sore but by stretching them regularly my back pains gone. as long as i stretch regularly i havent had any back problem even though i punch with weights shadow box with 16's hit the bag do shoulder exercises and jog 6 miles 4-5 times a week.

I would definitely recommended stretching and warming up before any weighted/non weighted shadow boxing as well as stretching afterwords. the walking would be the warm up then after about 45 min - an hour of shadow boxing/ shoulder exercises walking around the woods i put the weights away and go for a 6 mile lap around the lake on the path.

even if your not going to shadow box with weights its not a bad idea to bring some weights and walk around the woods while doing weighted shoulder exercises (for your delts and rotator cuff)as a warm up for your jog.

1. work on form. make sure your jabs and crosses are nice and straight and u dont raise your elbow too soon. make sure your hooks and uppercuts are nice and short. throw, dont push your punches. aim before you fire, once a punch is thrown its thrown. dont try to aim it after u let it go. work on this by shadowboxing alot.

2. get relaxed, your muscles should only tighten at impact. until the punch lands on your oponent you should be completely relaxed. practice by more shadowboxing.

3. get flexible, always stretch out before and after each workout. being flexible is a very important yet overlooked aspect of punching speed.

4. punch fast when training! keep a few rounds shadowboxing when you work on form but take a few focusing on speed too. punch as fast as you can and in combinations, look at pacquiao shadowboxing for an example. same thing applies to the bags.

5. punch alot! the muscles need to get used to the movement of throwing a punch, once they do the movement will become natural and much faster. do punch out drills every couple of days and make sure to always punch in combinations.

6. do some light resistance training, key word light. shadowbox with 1-3lb dumbells focusing on speed. use resistance cords aswell, they are much more effective with straight punches downside is they dont do much for the other punches. so combine resistance cords and light dumbells for best result.

7. use the double-end bag. this will get your eyes used to fast moving targets and allow you to react quicker when u see an opening. having great reaction time and hand-eye coordination is just as important as the speed of the punch itself.

8. use the speed bag. this will help your reaction time, hand eye coordination, loosen up your shoulders and get your hand used to moving constantly. i felt great progress in handspeed when using the speed bag on a regular basis. i wish we still had one :sad:


remember handspeed takes alot of time so be patient, dont try to do too many of these exercises at once. focus on a few things at a time, take your time and build. work on one thing until you peak, then move on to the next. once u have benefited from all these exercises u can mix it up from week to week. also make sure not to overlook other aspects of boxing other than handspeed.

good luck souljah :boxing:

There is some excellent advice in this thread. It's not one thing but the combination of many that will help speed; punching with light weights, stretching, etc. I found that sheer repetition, throwing punches at various points in the day, helps tremendously. It gets me funny looks sometimes at work but it does the trick. My hand speed is much faster with that repetition than it was before I practiced that much.

I have done many different types of training through the years. But nothing got me as strong and fast as working for a fire wood company.

The 5 day week consisted of splitting wood for three quarters of the day. And throwing fire wood into a dump truck for a quarter of the day. I always took it easy on the weekends. After six months of this kind of work my hands were faster with more power.

If you can't find this kind of work. You could always just swing a sledge hammer or splitting Maul into a log or even the ground. And for simulating throwing fire wood into a dump truck. You could just throw a medicine ball high off a wall.

This is how the day would go if you plan on taking up this kind of training.

Start with 2 hrs swinging your sledge or splitting maul as hard and as fast as you can.

Take a 15 min break drink some water have a snack if your want.

Start swinging again as hard and fast as you can for 1 hr and 45 min.

Take a 30 min lunch.

Next you swing as hard and fast as you can for 2 and 1/2 hrs.


Take a 15 min break have something to eat and drink if you want.

The final 1 hr 45 min throw the medicine ball high off the wall as fast as you can let it fall to the ground then repeat.

5 days on 2 days off if after 6 months you are not faster and stronger your body does not work like mine.

The first 3 weeks this kind of work is very hard. But after 6 months it was getting easier for me. After a year I was in the best shape of my life at the age of 20. And I got paid to train.

This is what worked best for me but everyone is different.
