myself and a friend agreed to have a match last night.4 rounds 3 mins a piece. he out weighs me by about 15lbs. he has never been in a fight before. i have wrestled thru out my entire school career. as a serious boxing fan i feel i have a slight edge here despite the weight/size issuse, we are about the same height.

with such a small time to prepare (i think?) what exercises should benefit me the best? what work outs/routines should i get into?

thanks for any help!!

video of the match will be up 24 hours after the match

You both box right? Kit carry on with your boxing training. Work on technice and maybe do more cardio for stamina. Try sprint training

Well start training on boxing if either of you have any. I'm betting you won't throw punches the same way you shadow box your punches because of lack in experience. Practice breathing when you get hit, breathing when you throw punches, ect. Shadow box a lot, hit the heavy bag if you have one. Watch youtube videos on tips and practice them. Learn your footwork, don't be a flat footed fighter. Learn how to throw good punches. If you're just starting from scratch there's a lot of work to be learned. You can do all the jogging and weight lifting you want but that doesn't mean you'll be good or last long in a boxing or sparring session.

My advice would be to scrap this "fight" and get some legit boxing training. Backyard boxing often results in someone getting hurt.

You paid for that yourself? An official fight? Under ABA rules? With ABA reprasentatives there?

There is no way anyone would sanction a bout between two guys with no boxing experience. It's just going to be backyard boxing.

Can't wait to see the video, though. Should be good for a few laughs.

no its not going to be that official.... a friends friends uncle use to ref some small time boxing matches, as far as the judges another friend works at a gym and will be getting a few of the trainers there to judge the fight.... but with that said we will be using official rules etc, were trying to keep it as legit as possible.....

lol good luck man. Joining a gym and training is a good decision. If you can, get some sparring in. That's where you really learn hands on and up close. I can't wait to see the video of your fight.

just got back from my first 2 hour one on one seshion with my trainer.... lots of work to be done as expected hahaha im sure you guys will get a good laugh after the video is up of the fight.....

we worked on a few things, mostly power push ups, pull ups etc. and basic begginer boxing stuff, but between the 2 two hour seshions a week with my trainer and running/jogging 2-4 times a week, i think i will be in better shape then my friend and will be able to pull out a decision.

And proper boxing doesn't? Lol

Anyways to the TS, just get fit as ****. Do 5x800m sprints with a min rest inbetween 2x per week. Go for a longer run (3-4 miles, brisk but steady pace)once per week, and do another day of other conditioning, like this circuit
20 jumping jacks, 10 pushups, 10 situps, 10 dips, 10 hand to knee jumps and 10 burpees. Repeat this as fast as you can for 4x3 min rounds, one min rest inbetween.

So that is 4 days per week of conditioning. Seeing as neither of you can box, it will most likely be conditioning that wins it.

As for skills, just work on proper stance and balance, how to move in different directions, and keeping your hands up. Nothing fancy, you aren't going to learn to be a clever fighter in a month.

I know this is just a mess around match, bit if you are really keen on feeding it to him, follow that advice.

Proper amateur boxing is very safe as far as the number of injuries that occur. A government study found that it was safer than bowling.

Get lots of practice, it's not as easy as you might think. Start running to strengthen the legs and build up your lung capacity, work on proper footwork and on building effective and correct punching. Good luck!!!

Proteins will give you the needed energy and help to build muscle, make sure that you get enough exercise so that the proteins don't turn into body fat. Red meats as well as eggs will supply lots of protein, make sure that you balance the proteins with carbs which will ensure a good energy level and help to keep the brain and reflexes sharp. Make sure that you also get enough exercise in to promote muscle growth and strength.
